Product Details

From Milan to New York, to Washington, D.C., BiFold gates are providing homeowners with a better solution. And, it can be automated! This kit includes the hardware needed to add the folding behavior to a two-leaf gate (up to 16 feet at 385 lb., or minimum 7 feet at 880 lb.).

Fabrication Considerations

While the BiFold gate hardware kit can support a variety of gate styles, designs and dimensions, care must be taken to ensure your gate is compatible with the folding hinge mechanisms:

  • Use a 2″ square tube outer frame to fit the leaf hinge mountings and permit full folding of the two leaves
  • Use at least a 3″ wide section to mount the column joint arm on the first leaf (closest to the post)
  • The top and bottom post hinges must be welded to the gate

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the BiFold gate kit compatible with gate automation?

  • Yes. The kit hardware is compatible with swing and in-ground gate automation solutions. We recommend consulting with a gate automation provider to select the best solution for your project.

 Note:

  • The manufacturer recommends no solid panels for the gate; air should be able to flow.
  • Due to the nature of the item (kit components), we are unable to accept returns. If a manufacturing defect is suspected, leave hardware on the gate(s) to take pictures/videos and let us know scope of project. We will submit all information to the manufacturer for evaluation.
