Useful Information About the Drayton Shaped Top Wooden Driveway Gates

Width Dimensions: Drayton shaped top wooden driveway gates are sold as a pair. The dimensions listed in the menu above correspond to the total width of both gates. For clarity, this means that each pair comprises of the following:

  • 2400mm pair = 2 x 1200mm

  • 2700mm pair = 2 x 1350mm

  • 3000mm pair = 2 x 1500mm

  • 3300mm pair = 2 x 1650mm

  • 3600mm pair = 2 x 1800mm

Height Dimensions: This dimension is measure from the bottom of the gates to the highest point. No allowance has been made in this measurement for ground clearance so you will need to factor this in when installing.

Fittings: No fittings are included as standard. If you need to add these items to your order, please choose from the options and accessories menu.

Posts: For ease of installation, we recommend that wooden gates be installed using wooden posts. Wall mounted posts fixed to an existing masonry structure are an acceptable option however for freestanding installations you will need to use in ground posts (which should be set to an appropriate depth to suit ground conditions). In both instances, to ensure enough space is available for the hinges, the opening created between the posts should be 40mm wider than the physical width of the gates.

Finish: The Drayton design is constructed from pressure treated softwood. This low maintenance finish removes the need to stain or paint the timber prior to installation. Please do note however that the pressure treatment process will result in timber having a green tint to it upon delivery. This is normal and will weather down over time to give a more natural appearance.

Installation: Hook and band hinges are only recommended when hanging the gates. They should be of a suitable size to provide the required level of support and should be mounted to the horizontal rails. For more information read the installation guide.

What Size Opening Will  Be Required Between the Wooden Posts?

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 the Pair of Gates Width of Opening Required Between Posts
2400mm 2440mm
2700mm 2740mm
3000mm 3040mm
3300mm 3340mm
3600mm 3640mm

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

What If I Need to Add Wooden Posts? 

You must consider the extra space required for installations that demand 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 3300mm gates combined with 2 x 150mm posts will require a total overall space of 3640mm.

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

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