How to Measure

INFORMATION

How to Measure

Measuring for your new gate is actually a very simple process.

   If existing posts/ pillars are in place, take three horizontal measurements. Top, middle and bottom as shown below.

How-to-measure-side gate and garden gate width

Make a note of the SMALLEST width.

** If you are replacing the posts, take a measurement of the whole opening width and reduce size by the width of the posts. For example: Opening width of 1m 260mm minus 2x posts (at 50mm wide each) = 1m 160mm.

Next, decide how the gate will hang and reduce width accordingly. The is by far the most popular option.

Option 1: Gate hanging on the rear of posts/ pillars. Main advantage of this set up is the reduced gap that is visible between the gate edge and post.

Calculate-width-of-metal-framed-garden-or-side-gate

To calculate gate width: Take the lowest measurement and reduce by 50mm (2″).

Option 2: Gate mounted in alley way or similar.

Calculate-width-of-metal-framed-garden-or-side-gate

This set up example would be used if placing the gate in an alley way or similar. The allowance on the hinge side is greater and does create a visible see through section.

Reduce 100mm (or 4″) from your lowest measurement.

Please note: If purchasing metal posts with your gate, hinge pins will be welded to the post. If not, we supply hinge pin plates for you to fix to existing posts/ pillars.

If ordering online and exact measurement not offered. Reduce to closest size. Want it exact? No problem, call our team to order - 0800 6124 965.

Estimated delivery time: Monday 8th July to Friday 12th July.

Using the finest Iroko (hardwood) – a naturally aesthetically pleasing wood. Expertly crafted by hand to any size in the UK. First by our skilled fabricators then to our experienced joiners for infill. Our metal framed gate range is what we are most proud of. Attention to detail both for look and durability is paramount. Sturdy 40mm x 40mm premium frame work, smooth welded joints, solid 30mm x 15mm rear bracing bars (if required – dependant on design) and stainless steel screws to fix the timber into place. To help prevent the gate from twisting or warping, welded braces are placed throughout the rear of the gate to ensure the cladding is correctly fixed. As timber is a natural product, it is prone to move during the seasons – in fact, a single piece of cladding can swell or contract up to 1.5mm, therefore, unlike others, we predict this movement and all gates are produced with a (non see through) expansion gap allowing the gate to “breathe” without anyone noticing it. The gap is dependant on gate size, and is usually between 5mm and 15mm which runs along the frame, parallel to the cladding width. This ensures stability of the gate without compromising the look.

Comes complete with a 10 year workmanship guarantee, fitted adjustable hinges/ pins, opening latch. Therefore, if fitting to existing posts/ pillars – this gate is ready to hang with no extras required.


Width of Gate: Taken as the actual gate (not opening size). This can be easily calculated – measure the distance between the pillars and reduce by 100mm (4″) or if you are purchasing our posts then the gate size required would be your opening size minus 50mm, then minus the total width of posts purchased (eg 2 x 80mm x 80mm posts would be a reduction of 160mm plus the additional 50mm meaning a total reduction of 210mm)

Height of Gate: Taken to the highest point of each gate. We recommend allowing a minimum of 25mm (1″) clearance between the bottom edge of gate and the ground. If you require a more exact height, please contact us to order.

Fitted Lock and Handle: included with the gate.

Gate Furniture: included with the gate: 2 x adjustable hinges and hinge pins. 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. If you require these to be different (if for example you already have pins set into a post/ pillar), please call us.

Finish: As standard, the framework will be finished in black (included in price) with optional finish to choose from for timber. We can also supply the frame in any RAL colour if needed.

Posts: Choose between “above ground” or “below ground”. Both come with gate pins attached ready to drop the gate in place. “Above ground” posts will have a base plate.

  • Lockable handle (2x keys included)

How do I maintain the gate?

METAL FRAMED GATES

The Beauty of Iroko with Metal

Combining a deep metal frame with stunning Iroko timber to produce a long lasting and aesthetically pleasing driveway gate.

Iroko hardwood timber comes from the Milicia excelsa tree and is commonly known for it's warm and attractive appearance. Featuring a golden to dark brown color with interlocked grain patterns. As it ages, it tends to darken, developing a rich patina that adds to its aesthetic appeal.

With natural weather-resistant properties, which make it ideal for outdoor use. It can withstand exposure to different weather conditions, including rain, sun, and humidity, without significant deterioration. This makes it a preferred material for outdoor gates.

Overall, Iroko hardwood timber's beauty and benefits make it a popular choice for a variety of applications where strength, durability, and an appealing aesthetic are essential considerations.

Iroko is a strong and dense hardwood, making it suitable for heavy-duty applications. Its strength is comparable to teak, making it a reliable choice for construction and woodworking projects that require robust materials.
