Useful Information About the Derbyshire Double Wooden Drive Gates

Width Dimensions: Wooden driveway gates are sold as a pair. The widths shown in the drop-down menu therefore refer to the physical width of both gates when placed side by side. For clarification purposes, each pair will be made up as follows:

  • 7ft pair = 2 x 3ft 6”

  • 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: The physical height is measured from the underside of the gates to the highest point. This measurement does not make any allowance for ground clearance.

Fittings: The Derbyshire wooden driveway gates do not include the hinges, latch, and drop bolt as standard. Should you need to order these items, please choose the appropriate fittings from the options and accessories menu above.

Posts: When installing the gates, we recommend using wooden posts. If these are not currently in place and you need to purchase these items, you can do so by selecting from the menu above. In ground posts are necessary for freestanding installations, however wall mounted posts are permitted when an existing wall or other support structure is present. To enable enough room for the hinges, latch, and to prevent the timbers from binding, the opening between the posts must be 40mm larger than the actual width of the gates.

Finish: The Derbyshire driveway gates are manufactured from slow grown Scandinavian Redwood and are not treated in any way to provide protection against rot and decay. It is therefore essential that all exposed surfaces are stained or painted prior to exposure to the elements.

Installation: To ensure the best level of support for the gates, we only recommend the use of hook and band hinges. These must be an appropriate size to provide adequate support. The band portion of the hinge should be mounted to the back of the gates along to the top and bottom horizontal rail and the hook portion should fit to the back of the timber post. For further information about fitting the gates please read our installation guide.

Double Wooden Gate Size Guide


 

What size opening will the Derbyshire 3ft High Wooden Drive 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 quality hand made timber gates we are able to offer you the following posts, furniture and accessories.
