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.

How to measure the opening


 

What size opening will the Drayton Shaped Top Double Wooden Driveway 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 2400mm = Fits an opening of approximately 2440mm – 2450mm  

  • Physical Width of 2700mm = Fits an opening of approximately 2740mm – 2750mm

  • Physical Width of 3000mm = Fits an opening of approximately 3040mm – 3050mm

  • Physical Width of 3300mm = Fits an opening of approximately 3340mm – 3350mm

  • Physical Width of 3600mm = Fits an opening of approximately 3640mm – 3660mm

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 2400mm gates combined with 2 x 100mm posts will require the existing gap between pillars to be approximately 2640mm - 2650mm.

What size hinges and what fittings do i need to complete the installation?

We recommend using 18" or 24" 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.

If you need to order posts and accessories please choose from the options detailed below.
