If you can figure out how to make it stand up ... maybe attaching it to conduit or fence posts placed in the ground (??) Seem like they could be used for trellis for plants like cucumbers/pumpkins. What about using them for windbreaks or creating shade like a patio cover
Invasive plants are Earth's way of insisting we notice her medicines.
Everyone learns what works by learning what doesn't work.
- Cut-to-fit on joists just under a garage's rafters and they'd be good for adding storage space. (boxes on top, hanging stuff off the rails)
- A magnetic tool rack, including large tools aswell. You could also use a same sized rack as a sort of wire rack + baskets and store food on it
- Cut-to-fit and sell/use them as guards over doors/windows. I know when I worked in the city my place could have used them. (sketchy neighbourhood)
Many more things I assume.
If you don't have access to cutting them, then Anne's suggestions are probably the only things you can do with them. In my yard I'd probably use it as a roof for an outdoor patio, and when it wasn't being used hang clothes and herbs of them for drying.

Cut them into strips (1' wide by the height of the door) and sell them in pairs as emergency traction devices for when people are stuck in the snow.
Use as a drag for harrowing a field or smoothing out a driveway
Make into a large cylinder and use as deer protection for a semi-dwarf tree until it's tall enough to survive on its own

yeah I definitely have the ability to cut and modify them. Although im really likin the trellis idea for my squash.
I go among trees and sit still.
All my stirring becomes quiet
around me like circles on water.
My tasks lie in their places
where I left them, asleep like cattle.
With some internal wire reinforcement, an attractive gabion wall, could be built. These gates are strong enough to contain tons of loose material, to create an interior trombe wall. Plywood could be placed against a frame wall, and then wires would hold the gate at an even distance away. Fill it with rocks or pebbles or other fill material. Wire mesh could be attached, if it is to contain very fine material.
If stood on end, a wall with a wave pattern or other uneven surface, could be created, since the hinges allow it to flex in that dimension. It would be held in place simply by altering the length of support wire.
If stood on end and wired together to create a tall barrel shape, large gabion pillars could be created.
Form into a cylinder & use as root crop washer? Attach to posts and use as wind fencing--or snow fencing if you get much snow! Place on top of a support structure and use for shade, attaching more shade material if needed. Cut into 3-4 ft. wide strips and use as nursery tables. Form into "U's" attach to ground and use as animal shade shelters or rain shelters with flexible sheet goods on top. I'm mildly jealous...
To obtain this sort of door, check out the demolition services providers in your own City. They are commonly removed when stores are renovated. There are demolition crews that specialize in getting in and out very quickly in the expensive commercial spaces like this. And stuff like that often finds Its way to the metal bin. These same contractor are a great resource if you need plate glass. It commonly ends up in the bin as well.
