Metal Posts (In Ground):

Marlborough Bi-Folding Metal Driveway Gates are handmade using high-grade steel components to ensure strength and durability in the UK. Thanks to the space-saving bi-fold design, the gates require only half the swinging radius of a standard 50/50 split configuration. As a result, they are the preferred choice for properties with sloping driveways or restricted parking access. You can choose from a selection of standard sizes online to suit common openings up to 12ft in width, or get in touch today if you would like to take advantage of our made to measure service.

Ordering Sizes

Width (Fit Opening): The sizes listed in the drop-down menu are the actual opening size you will need between brickwork or existing posts. We have already included the space taken up by the hinges and latch within these measurements. You do not make any further adjustments or allowances for these items.

To avoid confusion when selecting the width, it means that if the opening size between brick pillars is 9ft 6", then you should order the gates to fit an opening of 9ft 6".

Height (once installed): This dimension is from the ground to the top of the frame. It includes a gap of 50mm (2") for ground clearance. However, this measurement does not account for the top scroll above the frame.

Metal Posts: If you choose to use metal posts, you must understand that you need additional space.

Example: Gates to "fit opening" of 9ft 6" combined with 2 x 2" posts will need a total overall space of 9ft 10".

Helpful Information About the Marlborough Bi-Folding Driveway Gates

Fittings: We provide a fitting pack with the gates containing adjustable hinges, latch, and drop bolts. The screws you will require to connect the hinge brackets to the brickwork or posts will not be included.

Posts: When no brickwork is present, you must use metal posts; however, they must be the correct size and type to provide adequate support. When fitting these items, you will need to be set them into the ground using concrete. 

Installation: The surface-mounted hinges should only be attached to any masonry surface, provided it can offer the proper level of support. For additional details, please take a look at the installation guide.

Width: As explained above, this is the opening size required and does not refer to the physical width of the product. If you need additional clarification, please click here.

Painting: Marlborough bi-folding metal driveway gates are primed black with an undercoat. Before installation, you must paint them to protect the steel against rust and corrosion. Alternatively, if you would like them supplied pre-finished with low maintenance zinc plated (electro galvanised) and black powder-coated paint, please feel free to contact us before placing your order.
