Useful Information About the 4ft High Buxton Double Wooden Gates

Width Dimensions: The dimensions shown in the menu at the top of the page refer to the physical width of both gates when placed side by side. To avoid confusion this means that each pair is made up 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: This measurement is taken from the underside of the gates to the highest point. When installing you will need to allow additional space for ground clearance. In most instances 50mm (2”) is sufficient however this may alter depending on site constraints and is down to the person fitting to decide how much space to allow.

Fittings: The gates are not supplied with the hinges, latch or drop bolt as standard. If you would like to add these items to your order, please choose the appropriate fitting pack from the options and accessories menu.

Posts: The use of wooden posts is recommended when installing the gates. Depending on the layout of the existing opening the use of wall mounted or in ground posts is acceptable. Please note that in both instances, the gap formed between the posts should be 40mm wider than the physical width of the gates you have ordered. This additional space is required to cater for the hinges and to allow for a small amount of movement of the timber throughout the year.

Finish: The Buxton design is made from smooth placed untreated Scandinavian Redwood. This means that to provide protection against rot and decay, all exposed timber surface should be stained or painted prior to installation.

Installation: For optimum level of support only hook and band type hinges should be used when installing the gates. The most practical means of attaching the hinges is to the top and bottom horizontal rails. For more information, please read the installation guide.

How to measure the opening for double gates


What size opening will the Buxton 4ft High Double Wooden Gates fit into?

If you are fitting the driveway 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.

Are posts, gate furniture and accessories required? If you need to order additional items to carry out your gate installation we recommend using the following items.
