Bespoke Featheredge Garden Gates
We can make “Bespoke” sized featheredge gates for your garden. Where possible these gates will resemble our standard sized gates, but because they are not factory made they will not not match exactly. Please verify the appearance of our bespoke featheredge gate before ordering.
When measuring your gate we don’t mind whether you measure in feet or metres, the important thing is that measurements are correct.
Because of the variety of gate sizes the pricing can become rather difficult. Therefore we have taken the decision to group the gate sizes into price bands by size of the gate. Most people ask for gates in feet so we price by square feet, Small Gates are up to 14.9 sq. feet, Medium Gates are 15 sq feet to 20.9 sq. feet and Large Gates 21 to 28 sq feet. Maximum gate height is 7′ and maximum width is 4′.
Our bespoke gates are made using pressure treated framing and cladding timbers. However, they should ideally be further finished with a colour preservative stain or micro-porous paint finish. The bespoke featheredge gates are normally made using 150mm featheredge with a 25mm lap. Gate frames are made using ex. 50 x 75mm pressure treated CLS. (These timbers has a finished size of approx. 38mm x 63mm. Any cross-cuts and cut to width timbers are treated with Ensele (or equivalent) end-grain preservative. Finally the gate tops are finished with flat bottomed capping that sits neatly along the top of the framing. The gates can be constructed, where requested, using 125mm featheredge up to a maximum height of 1.8 metres.
Fixtures and Fittings
All gate hinges and fixings are treated as extras when purchasing a gate. Because of the variety of sizes of garden gates made to order there is no specific post and hinge that fits all. Standard and 15 year Manufacturer Warranty posts are stocked, we recommend 100mm x 100mm posts as a minimum size. Our featheredge gates are quite heavy and larger gates might need a 125mm post for support.
Wherever possible our gate furniture is HD (Hot Dip) Galvanised, a finish more suited to outdoor conditions than lower priced BZP products. A comprehensive range of hinges, bolts and gate latches is held in stock. We also carry a cold galvanising spray where customers require their gate furniture to look as uniform as possible.
