    Aluminum Fence - how to get a wider opening?

    Hi,

    I have an aluminum fence around my pool. I also have an ATV which I use to bring supplies to & from the pool.

    I would like to figure a way to get a larger opening. Is there an easy way to either put a hinge of some sort on a part of the fence or some way for easy (ish) access to drive a quad into the pool area?

    The regular gate I have now is about 45 inches & the quad is about 47 inches wide so it wont fit. If I could easily remove a part of the fence it would be a snap to drive in & out.

    Any advice or suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Rich

    I am sure you can cut it off and make it into a gate. Whether it is easy or not is up to your abilities.
    Just make sure it still complies with any codes ... like self-closing and latching with high latches.

    Yes you can remove it and measure the opening, then order a new gate which will mount to the existing poles. The only difference in, "line" vs "end" poles are the cutouts for the railing to slide into.
