Bi-Folding Swing Gate System's Special Needs
They need a special frame, so a few factors need to be considered, such as cross-bracing. The reason why cross-bracing is fundamental is primarily to keep the leaf from sagging. A compression cross-brace transfers weight from the top bar by pushing down against the bottom hinge or a vertical component or post, which transfers the load to both hinges. Improper or missing cross-bracing will cause the Vertical deflection of the leaf. Cross-bracing should always “lean into opening”. Furthermore, the bi-folding swing gate only works properly when the internal hinges are properly welded concerning the vertical axle. You‘ll also need to consider the wiring of safety edges, as this feature should be accommodated in the frame.
