Going to replace sheeted gates with sliding doors. I will need two sliding doors on each end of the shed. Openings are about 12' wide by 10' high . Can this be grant aided under safety or is it actually worth applying for a grant ?
Sliding doors were covered under the safety tams, got one done here. I think safety tams are in the current lot
If your anyway practical you'll have them welded up and sheeted in a day and around 300 materials each.
Thanks... Might take ME a week so. Are you saying €300 would cover a 12' opening made up of two 6' doors. Hardly worth looking for a grant so is it ? Where is best value in heavy duty sliding gear at the moment ?
I made up two 11 x 11 foots with the heavy duty runners for 600 materials. Inside sheeted up four ft with flat sheets I had already.if your not good with a welder you'd be better off getting someone to make it up.
Do you mind sending me a link to the runners & where you got them. I hope I can buy the material around here for that sort of money. I buy in Ballaghderren and I think I am paying 30% more than if I was a professional welder
Sorry for hopping on this thread OP but no point starting another.
I have an existing set of sliding doors on slatted shed but runners gone stiff. They are up 20 years. Should I replace track and rollers for comfort and who2 have you a link to good spot to get them.
We had to replace rollers only, got them in the local hardware so probably just standard rollers that matched the track. Doors up 15 years and had to replace twice if not three times already
could you chance plastering the rollers with grease first or else oiling them to see does it make any difference before replacing them?
Bought mine directly off an engineeering firm up north. I can't put up their number as he doesn't really sell to the public but the sliding gear should be available in most hardwares. There's three different grades as far as I'm aware.
I got track & running gear from this guy in 2014. Found him sound to deal with..http://www.slidingdoortracks.ie/.
Make sure that the doors are properly adjusted ( not sliding on the ground )
If rails are not rotten put a good bit of cheap engine oil behind each hanging so that each time you open the doors the hangers run over the oil should sort your problem.
Have doors here older than I can remember still going strong.
