HARDWOOD BI-FOLD GATES – THE BAYWOOD:Manufactured using the finest, hand selected iroko hardwood to create a stunning and durable bi-fold driveway gate. Expertly crafted in the UK to any width or height. Time served construction techniques to provide ultimate durability.nBeing a bi-fold opening type makes it a great gate for those where the opening space is limited or driveway slopes up. The gates are able to fold back on themselves so only needs a quarter of the width of the gates in its open position.Working out the required gate size:To work out the size of the gates take the opening width you have (between pillars/posts) and deduct the following to allow for hinges. This is assuming the gates are to be opening inwards.nn3 x leafs minus 60mm from opening sizen4 x leafs minus 80mm from opening sizen5 x leafs minus 100mm from opening sizen6 x leafs minus 120mm from opening sizen7 x leafs minus 140mm from opening sizen8 x leafs minus 160mm from opening sizennThe above measurements allow 15mm clearance between the edge of gate and post/pillars, 20mm between 2 leafs attached with a strap hinge and 10mm for the clearance in the middle of the gates (where the two gates close in the middle)nFor more information or advice with working out your measurements call us free on 0800 612 4965 and we will be happy to help.nnFitting the hinges on these gates are straight forward. We recommend either the 24″ or 36″ adjustable hinge set for the outer leaf gates. This hinge is able to hold a great deal of weight and then use strap hinges for the other leafs. A jockey wheel is adviseable if the gates are very large or to make the opening of the gates easier.All gates online can be purchased to the nearest inch, if you do require a more precise size, please contact us. (Unlike others – there is NO additional cost for bespoke, we simply base price on the next size!)n
The depth, thickness and quality of materials used in the construction of hardwood gates is a key factor on how the gate will look and perform. We only use the finest Iroko hardwood. This ultimately produces a long lasting gate that really does “make an entrance”.
Rear Bracing: Most gates will be produced with a diagonal brace system. This is sometimes changed to an “A” brace design if needed due to size.
