Useful Information About the Hampton Double Gates

Width Dimensions: The Hampton wooden driveway gates are sold as a pair. The width dimensions listed in the menu above refer to the total width of both gates when placed side by side. For clarification 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 is measured from the underside of the gates to the highest point. We have made no allowance for ground clearance within this measurement. As a general guide we normally suggest leaving a gap of 50mm (2”) but this may vary to suit site constraints such as sloping driveways, steps or other similar obstructions.

Fittings: The Hampton design does not include the necessary hinges, latch or drop-bolt that will be required to complete the installation. If you need to order these items, please select the appropriate fitting pack from the options and accessories menu at the top of the page.

Posts: We recommend the use of wooden posts when installing the gates. For installation between exiting masonry the use of wall mounted posts is acceptable. For freestanding installations, it will be necessary to use in ground posts. In both instances the gap formed between the posts should be 40mm wider than the width of the gates you order to provide sufficient space for the hinges and to allow for a small amount of movement of the timber throughout the seasons.

Finish: The Hampton gates are manufactured from pressure treated smooth planed 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 type hinges are only recommended when hanging the gates. They should be of an appropriate size to provide the required level of support and should be mounted to the top and bottom horizontal rails. For more information read the installation guide.

How to measure for double wooden gates

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 Hampton gates we are able to offer you the following optional extras and posts.
