Useful Information About the Hampton 1.8m High Wooden Gates

Width Dimensions: When selecting the size you need to order, please be aware that the size in the drop-down menu refers to the total width of both gates (when placed side by side). For clarity, each pair comprises 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 Dimension: Measured from the underside of the gates to the highest point (in the middle and the sides). When you fit the gates, you will require additional space for ground clearance.

Fittings: If you need to add a fitting pack (containing the hinges, latch, and drop-bolt) to your order, please choose the appropriate option from the menu at the top of the page.

Posts: We advise using wooden posts to fit the gates. Wall-mounted posts are a suitable option if you fit between walls or brickwork. For freestanding applications, you will need to make use of in-ground posts. In each case, the gap created should be 40mm wider than the width of the gates you order. This additional space will ensure adequate room for the hinges and latch.

Finish: The timber used to construct the Drayton shaped wooden estate gates are smooth planed pressure treated softwood. This low maintenance finish eliminates the requirement to paint or stain the gates before installation. Please be aware that this process will cause the timber to have a green tint; however, this will weather down over time to a more natural appearance.

Installation: We only recommend using hook and band hinges when installing the gates. You should only fix the hinges to the horizontal rails for optimum support. For more information, read the installation guide.

How to measure for wooden gates


 

What size opening will the Drayton Shaped Top Estate Gates fit into?

If you are fitting double 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? 

If your installation requires wooden posts then you will need to take into account 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 3000mm gates combined with 2 x 100mm posts will require the existing gap between pillars to be approximately 3240mm-3250mm.

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

We recommend using 2 x (pairs) 24” hook and band hinges. 1 x ring latch and a minimum of 1 x drop bolt to hold the gate closed will also be required.

Do you need hinges, posts and accessories? If required please select from the following items.
