Ordering Sizes

The width measurements in the drop-down menu reflect the total physical width of the two gates (when placed side by side). The height is determined by taking a measurement from the highest point of the arch to the bottom of the horizontal rail. The extra space required for the lock, hinges, and ground clearance must still be taken into account.

We therefore recommend that you use the chart below to determine the ideal spacing between your brick walls or support posts.

Height Dimensions

The menu's dimensions denote the gates' physical height to the top of the arch. To ensure you have adequate space to allow for ground clearance and the room taken up by the top and bottom hinges, we recommend that the wall or posts are a minimum of 100mm larger than this measurement.

Please note the physical height of the gates at the sides is 200mm shorter than the measurement to the top of the arch.



What is Included with the Double Gates as Standard?

4 x Wall Mounted Adjustable Hinges

2 x Floor Mounted Hinges


Do you Need to Buy Aluminium Posts?

You will need to order aluminium posts when fitting the gates into a location without any existing masonry walls. If you order these components, they can be buried into the ground or bolted onto any appropriate hard surface.


To guarantee that the aluminium posts can support the weight of the gates, they have a 3.5mm thick profile. They are available in black or anthracite grey and come with a black post cap to keep moisture out.
