Drayton Square Top Wooden Driveway Gates measure 950mm in height and are an excellent choice for any homeowner looking to add security and privacy to the property's main entrance at an affordable price. They use pressure treated timber with a high-quality finish and feature vertical tongue and groove boards set within a secure 70mm thick mortise and tenon jointed framework. This ensures they can withstand the rigours of modern life. For additional strength and rigidity, the horizontal rails and diagonal bracing provide additional support, which is designed to prevent sagging and twisting. As such, they are becoming one of our best-selling designs.

Useful Information About the Drayton Double Wooden Drive Gates

Width Dimensions: Quorn wooden drive gates are supplied as a pair with the measurements listed in the drop-down box relating to the actual width of both gates when placed side by side. To avoid confusion, each pair is made up as follows:

  • 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: The height shown in the product description is the actual height of the gates measured from the underside to the highest point. When installing, you will need to allow for ground clearance which in most instances will be around 50mm (2”).

Fittings: The hinges, latch and drop bolt are not supplied with the gates. If these items are required, you will need to add the appropriate fitting pack to your order using the drop-down box in the options and accessories menu.

Posts: To achieve the best results we recommend installing the gates onto wooden posts of the appropriate size. For free standing installations, you will need to use in ground posts, and they should be sunk to an appropriate depth to suit ground conditions. If you are mounting between an existing masonry structure (such as walls or brick pillars) the use of wall mounted posts is recommended. In both instances, the opening formed between the posts should be 40mm wider than the physical width of the gates to allow the required spacing for the hinges and to allow for expansion and contraction of the wood throughout the year.

Finish: The Drayton design is constructed from smooth planed pressure treated softwood to ensure maximum levels of protection against rot and decay. This low maintenance option means you do not need to stain or paint the gates prior to installation. Please do note however that the pressure treatment process will result in timber having a green tinge to it upon delivery. This is normal and will weather down over time to give a more natural appearance.

Installation: When installing the gates, we only recommend the use of hook and band type hinges as these will provide the best level of support. The hinges should be mounted to the top and bottom horizontal rail and mount onto the back of the wooden posts. For more details read our general installation guide.

How to measure for double wooden gates


 

What size opening will the Drayton 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.

To complement the Drayton square top double gates we are able to offer you the following optional extras and posts.
