To provide you with a quote for a 'frame only' slider, in addition to your basic height and length information we also need to know just what, and how, you are intending to clad it.

There are a few different ways we can build the aluminium frame for you, depending on what may best suit your cladding. Here are three common options:


The most basic method is for us to build just a basic outer frame out of 50mm thick aluminium. For some larger gates it may require some additional vertical or horizontal support beams spaced across the gate.

You then add your cladding externally to the outside of this frame. So if your cladding was 20mm thick, the overall gate becomes 70mm thick.

In this option we build the core outer frame 50mm thick, and add in an internal recessed frame (and often additional vertical or horizontal ribs) of 25mm thick aluminium box to provide a series of attachment points for your cladding.


You then have a 25mm space from the middle to the front edge to fit your material, and the total gate thickness remains at 50mm.

We need to know from you whether you are adding cladding horizontally or vertically, and an idea of how many ribs (vertical or horizontal pieces spaced across the frame) you want.

We're happy to discuss with you how many ribs may be suitable if you are not sure - give us a call.


When making our aluminium tongue and groove gates, EasyGate utilise our own custom channel profile to 'hold' the tongue and groove lengths in place.

If you are wanting to add cedar tongue and groove to your frame, we can screw our special profile to the inside of the outer frame for you. 

Note: suitable for 18mm thick tongue and groove only.






NOTESWarning about your cladding choice and fixing method: Some raw materials such as timber cladding will be subjected to expansion and doubling of weight when wet. EasyGate highly recommend you dry and seal such material prior to installing onto this aluminium frame and allow for expansion at the frame between the timber inner edges. Pre drill timber prior to fixing to frame. Failure to do so may result in damage to the frame and therefore not covered in the EasyGate warranty.
