Useful Information About the Gloucester Double Wooden Gates

Width Dimensions: Wooden driveway gates are sold as a pair. This means that the widths shown in the drop-down menu refer to the physical width of both gates (when placed side by side). Each pair comprises of the following:

  • 7ft pair = 2 x 3ft 6”

  • 8ft pair = 2 x 4ft

  • 9ft pair = 2 x 4ft 6”

  • 10ft pair = 2 x 5ft

  • 11ft pair = 2 x 5ft 6”

  • 12ft pair = 2 x 6ft  

Height Dimensions: The physical height is measured from the underside of the gates to the highest point. This measurement does not make any allowance for ground clearance.

Fittings: The Gloucester gates do not include hinges, latch, or drop bolt as standard. If you need to purchase these items, please choose the appropriate fitting pack from the menu above.

Posts: For optimum results we recommend using wooden posts when installing the gates. For installations where an existing support structure is present (such as brick pillars or similar support) the use of wall mounted posts is acceptable. For freestanding installations, you will need to install in ground posts to an appropriate depth to suit ground conditions. In both instances, it is important to note that the gap formed between the posts should be 40mm wider than the physical width of the gates. This is to allow sufficient space for the hinges and latch and to factor in expansion of the timber during throughout the year.

Finish: The Gloucester wooden gates are constructed from untreated softwood and must be stained or painted prior to installation. Failure to carry out this treatment will result in the onset of rot and decay of the timber.

Installation: To provide adequate support to the gates we only recommend the use of hook and band hinges. If the gates are to be inward opening (onto the driveway) they should be mounted to the back of the gates and posts (the band portion should be attached to the top and bottom horizontal rails). For outward opening layouts, the hinges will need to be mounted to the front face of the gates and posts. For further information please look at our general installation guide.

How to measure the opening for Gloucester 4ft high gates


 

What size opening will the Gloucester 4ft High 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 2130mm = Fits an opening of approximately 2170mm - 2180mm

  • Physical Width of 2440mm = Fits an opening of approximately 2480mm – 2490mm  

  • Physical Width of 2740mm = Fits an opening of approximately 2780mm – 2790mm

  • Physical Width of 3050mm = Fits an opening of approximately 3090mm – 3100mm

  • Physical Width of 3350mm = Fits an opening of approximately 3390mm – 3400mm

  • Physical Width of 3660mm = Fits an opening of approximately 3700mm – 3710mm

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 3050mm gates combined with 2 x 100mm posts will require the existing gap between pillars to be approximately 3290mm - 3300mm.

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, fittings or accessories to complement the Gloucester double wooden gate design please choose from the following options.
