Size of the Gates

Wooden gates can be a little complicated to establish the correct size to suit a given application therefore please choose the most relevant option below and provide us with the details.

Replacement of Existing Wooden Gate – If you are replacing an existing wooden gate and will be installing it in the same way simply measure the physical width and height of the current gate and provide us with this measurement.

Between 2 Walls – If you are installing between 2 existing walls simply measure the gap size. We will make all the required calculations for you.

No Support Structure in Place – If you are fitting the gate to an area free from existing support then simply measure the total space available and we will make all the other calculations for you.

You can also find this information if you refer to our easy to understand measuring guide.

Height of the Gates

You will need to specify the height of the gates you require. When doing so, remember that you will need to make an allowance for ground clearance so make sure you factor this in when making your decision.

Wooden Posts

Our wooden gates are designed to have the band part of the hinges mounted on the back face of gate and the hook section mounted onto the back of the wooden posts. Please make sure you inform us if the posts are to be wall mounted or set into the ground in concrete. This will allow us to quote for the most appropriate size post to suit your given requirements.

Gate Furniture

Wooden gates do not come with any fittings as standard therefore these will need to be purchased separately. If these items are required, let us know and we will include the appropriate fittings within any quote we provide.
