Product Details

The height froSoftwood pressure treated timber construction
These five bar gates are made from a planed, smoother finished softwood timber than our normal field gates. Our 3’ and 4’ gates normal have one diagonal brace from top to bottom rail, 5’ gates and above have more bracing, hence the term diamond bracing. The gates are made using pressure treated timber with mortise & tenon joints, but their smoother finish makes them ideal for use as driveway gates. They are also available to order in hardwood, either Iroko or Sapele.  Height from the bottom of the stile to the top rail (heighest point of rail) is approx. 1130mm and the height from the bottom rail to the top rail is approximately 990mm (top of top  rail to the bottom of the bottom rail) 

Left hand or right hand hanging?
Our driveway gates are normally made as left-hanging, but can be made as right hanging to order. To work out whether you need left hand, or right-hand hanging gates visualise standing outside the property looking inwards – whichever post the gate will be hinged (or hung) on dictates if it is left or right hand.  Please advise when ordering gates if they are being hung as a pair (that would need 1 left and 1 right) or whether they are being hung independently of one another.

Stocked sizes and bespoke gates

Diamond braced field gates are normally stocked in sizes from 3' gates primarily for pedestrian use, up to 12’ gates more suitable for vehicle use.  They are stocked in 1’ increments but bespoke sizes can be made to order, to the nearest inch, up to a maximum size of 15’.  Pricing is simple, an 11’ 4” gate would be charged at the same rate as a 12’ gate
