Slide gate setup

The sliding gate set up, shows you the extra 100mm over hang at each end of the gate behind the posts plus the tails for the motor and guide bracket. The racking on the bottom of the gate needs to run the whole length of the bottom rail. Your wheels usually sit up inside the bottom 100x50 rail for a minimal gap under the gate.
