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.

What Size Opening Will  Be Required Between the Wooden Posts?

If you are planning to install wooden gates between existing timber posts (with the hinges positioned on the back face of the gate/post), you must have the following space available.

Physical Width of the Pair of Gates Width of Opening Required Between Posts
2130mm 2170mm
2440mm 2480mm
2740mm 2780mm
3050mm 3090mm
3350mm 3390mm
3660mm 3700mm

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

What If I Need to Add Wooden Posts? 

You must account for the added space required for installations that require wooden posts.

The calculation is carried out as follows:

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 utilised)

+ 40mm (space needed for hinges, latch and opening tolerances).

= Total Overall Space Required 


A pair of 2130mm gates combined with 2 x 100mm posts will demand a total overall space of 2370mm.

What Size Hinges and Fittings Do I Require to Complete the Installation?

We recommend using 18" or 24" hook and band hinges (depending on the size you order) 1 x ring latch and a minimum of 1 x drop bolt to keep the gates shut.
