Thanks and understood and I have the pocket door done. Looking for plans ( hardware and materials) to do a gate pocket door.

Looking at this door and the one on the picture below makes one wonder about hardware.
The one in this picture above (half door) has a wheel to keep the door up.
The door in the picture below has no such wheel so the door would need a more substantial hardware system. The force of a child climbing on it or an adult putting weight on it would be considerable. I am very curious what hardware was used on door both doors.

Shouldn't be too difficult to do-all you need is a slot in the wall that does not have any obstructions like electrical. You could convert an existing pocket door opening and close in the exposed upper part of the pocket. - otherwise you're starting from scratch. Note: pocket door frames usually will have a bumper mounted inside the frame to cushion the door as it recedes and prevent it from going too far into the pocket. You can solve this issue by adding bumpers to the end of the door instead. You probably want the pocket deep enough for the door to fully recede. A latch will need to be installed on the outside end of the gate to pull the door out and if required, lock it. You can use half of a slab door or make your "gate". The size may depend on what you are trying to keep out - too low and it could be climbed over or jumped over. Install quality fixed wheels on the bottom to carry the weight load. (These wheels will also have to be able to fit into the pocket opening! ) If you want glass inserts, the glass will have to be tempered and therefore heavier. A thick acrylic or plexiglass might be the better option if you want to be able to see through the gate). In order to place the "gate" into the pocket, you may be able to slide one end in first - if not, stand it up in the opening and gradually lower one end into the pocket. Install some flat screen moulding on the side jams so when the gate is pulled across, it will have full vertical support on both sides. (This will help prevent pushing the gate forward or pulling it back as well as the gate being accidentally pulled out of the pocket). Run the screen moulding all the way up to the top on both sides and paint it out to visually blend into the door jambs. Plastic pocket door guides installed at the bottom on the pocket opening will help the door glide straighter as it's pulled out.

If this seems too much work, and you have the swing room, you could also hang a half slab door using standard door hinges. Think "dutch door" without the upper half!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

If you've ever had a dog or a small child, you know what a pain it is to put up and take down door and stairway gates. This built-in, retractable version not only is a cinch to pull out when you need it, but also looks way more attractive than the portable kind.
Natalie Myers added this to Discover the Ins and Outs of Pocket Doors
A partial-height pocket door offers an elegant solution for keeping dogs or kids safe in one space.
