Metal Driveway Gates – The Kensington Low

  • How to Measure:

    Take three measurements, top, middle and bottom. Take the shortest of the three measurements. Reduce width dependant on set-up. 50mm if hanging on rear face of post or 150mm if hanging to inner of post.

    WIDTH*

    Actual gate width for both sides added together. For example, if you selected a width from the drop down of 10ft (3m 048mm), you would receive 2 x gates at 5ft wide (1m 524mm).

    HEIGHT*

    Taken to the highest point of the gate. We recommend leaving a gap of 25mm (1") clearance between the bottom edge of the gate and ground level.

    METAL POSTS

    Free with Gate

    Both opening latch and adjustable hinges included free of charge with each gate.

    ADDING AUTOMATION?

    Extra support for the gate is needed if planning on automating your gates. This is due to the force of the automation to the gate. Standard rails (over time) will fail. Add either a strengthened middle rail if attaching automation arms to middle of the gate (also know as above ground automation), or bottom wrap around hinges if using underground automation.

Specification

The depth, thickness and quality of materials used in the construction of metal gates is a key factor on how the gate will look and perform. We only use the finest steel that’s thicker than industry standard. This ultimately produces a long lasting gate that really does “make an entrance”.

GATE MATERIAL
HANGING STYLE 40mm x 40mm
BOTTOM RAIL 40mm x 40mm
TOP & MIDDLE RAIL 40mm x 40mm/ 40mm x 10mm – dependant on design
MAIN INFILL BARS 16mm Diameter
DOG BARS 12mm Diameter
Size Guide

Width of Gate: Taken as if both sides were touching each other. For example, a width from the drop down menu of 10ft (3m 048mm) would be 2 x 5ft wide. If you are measuring a gap between existing posts/ pillars, we recommend reducing the opening size by 6″ (150mm) to allow for hinge/ pins and centre clearance.


Height of Gate: Taken to the highest point of each gate. We recommend allowing a 50mm (2″) clearance between the bottom edge of gate and driveway (as long as the drive is level). If you require a more exact height, please contact us to order.

Hinge Mounting Options

Metal driveway gates are always fitted to pins mounted on metal posts, walls or timber. You simply lift the gate on to the pins to hang.

We offer three different options:

Option 1: (free with gate)

Adjustable gate hinges. Hook on plates.

Included free with gate. Hinge pin plates with adjustable bolts. These can be attached to existing walls, timber posts or metal posts.

Please note: As we do not know what material these plates are being connected to, fixings are not included.

Option 2:

Metal posts for driveway gates

Purchase new metal posts from us with your gate. The posts will have the hinge pins welded to them. Due to the sheer weight of metal gates, these posts are designed to be fitted in the ground. As standard, the position of the hinge will be 6″ (150mm) from the bottom edge of gate and 6″ (150mm) from top edge of gate. The colour of your metal posts will match the colour you have chosen for the gate.

Option 3:

Gate pins on pillars

Your posts or pillars already have pins in place. We can manufacture your new gate so that it can drop directly on to existing gate pins. Please call our team to order (0800 6124 965). They will explain in detail what measurements we need to take.

Hanging Options

There are two ways that you can mount your metal driveway gates, inner face of the posts/pillars or on rear face of the posts/ pillars. Most people opt to have the gate hung using the inner face method (figure 1 below).

Figure 1:

Driveway Gate Mounting

Hinge plates mounted to inner face of post/ pillar. Gate to be mounted central between the posts.

REDUCE 150mm (approx. 6″) from your lowest measurement for gap clearance.

If adding underground automation, reduce the lowest measurement by 110mm.

Figure 2:
