Useful Information About the 4ft High Bordeaux Double Wooden Gates

Width Dimensions: The Bordeaux wooden gates are supplied as a pair. The widths shown in the menu above refer to the actual width of both gates when placed next to each other. To avoid confusion, this means that each pair comprises of the following:

  • 8ft pair = 2 x 4ft

  • 9ft pair = 2 x 4ft 6”

  • 10ft pair = 2 x 5ft

  • 11ft pair = 2 x 5ft 6”

  • 12ft pair = 2 x 6ft

Height Dimensions: No allowance has been made for the ground clearances that will be required. The height is measured from the underside of the gates to the highest point.

Fittings: To add the relevant fitting pack to your order please choose the appropriate size hinges from the options and accessories menu at the top of the page.

Posts: When fitting the gates we recommend the use of wooden posts. These can be either wall mounted or may be set into the ground using concrete. For optimal results the gap formed between the posts should be 40mm larger than the size of the gates you order. This will then provide you with the space needed for the hinges and will prevent them binding against the posts during operation.

Finish: The Bordeaux design is constructed using smooth planed Scandinavian Redwood. The timber has not been treated in anyway therefore it is essential that the gates are stained or painted prior to installation.

Installation: The use of hook and band hinges are recommended when installing the gates. To provide the best support, we recommend mounting the hinges to the top and bottom horizontal rails. You can find out more general information about fitting by referring to our installation guide.

How to measure the opening


 

What size opening will the Bordeaux 4ft High Wooden Driveway Gates fit into?

If you are fitting the wooden gates between existing timber posts (with the hinges fitted on the back face of the gate/post) then we recommend the following space is available.

  • Physical Width of 2130mm = Fits an opening of approximately 2170mm - 2180mm

  • Physical Width of 2440mm = Fits an opening of approximately 2480mm – 2490mm  

  • Physical Width of 2740mm = Fits an opening of approximately 2780mm – 2790mm

  • Physical Width of 3050mm = Fits an opening of approximately 3090mm – 3100mm

  • Physical Width of 3350mm = Fits an opening of approximately 3390mm – 3400mm

  • Physical Width of 3660mm = Fits an opening of approximately 3700mm – 3710mm

NB* sizes are based on the options shown in the drop down menu.

What if i need to add wooden posts? 

For installations that require wooden posts it is important to make allowances for the additional space required. The calculation is worked out in the following way. 

Physical width of gates + width of posts (2 x 100mm is sufficient if using wall mounted posts or 2 x 150mm if freestanding posts are used) + 40/50mm (space needed for hinges, latch and opening tolerances)

Example: a pair of 3050mm gates combined with 2 x 100mm posts will require the existing gap between pillars to be approximately 3290mm - 3300mm.

What size hinges and what fittings do i need to complete the installation?

We recommend using 18", 24" or 36" hook and band hinges (depending on the size of the gates you order). We also suggest you add 1 x ring latch and a minimum of 1 x drop bolt to hold the gates closed.

To complement these attractive modern timber gates we can offer you the following items.
