Garden Gates made to Order
We do have frequent requests for Garden Gates made to order. Although we stock a variety of garden gates made with different materials they are all made to standard sizes. So, we can also offer three styles of gate made to size for those instances where a standard size just won’t do. These gates will resemble our standard sized gates, but because they are not factory made they will not not match exactly.
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 width is 4′.
The Featheredge gates are our most popular garden gates, they are made to blend in with our featheredge fences as closely as possible. The made to order gates will normally use 125mm providing they are not made taller than 1.8 metres. All materials used are from our normal fencing stocks, the gate frames are normally made with ex.50 x 75mm tanalised CLS. Any cross-cut timbers are treated with Ensele end-grain preservative. Finally the gates are finished with flat bottomed capping that sits along the top of the framing.
TGV (tongue and groove) gates are favoured when the gate needs to be finished with a colour stain or micro-porous paint style finish. Gates are made using planed redwood pine boards, ex. 16mm x 100mm. Gate frames are made using ex.50 x 100 tanalised CLS. Any cross-cut and cut to width timbers are treated with Ensele end-grain preservative. Finally the gates are finished with flat bottomed capping that sits along the top of the framing.
When privacy isn’t such an issue then the pale gates are a popular choice. They might be used for side access to the rear of a property, or just part of a pale garden fence. These gates are normally made using round top pales of 600mm, 900mm, 1200mm and 1800mm. Although gate height is therefore limited to 1800mm it is possible we can use sqaure ended pales up to a height of 2.13 metres. Gate frames are made using a smooth ex.50 x 100 tanalised CLS. The smooth planed redwood pales finish at approximately 70mm x 20mm. Frame and pales can be finished with a colour stain or micro-porous paint style finish if required.
Fixtures and Fittings
Because of the variety of sizes of garden gates made to order there is no specific post and hinge M that fits all. Standard and 15 year Manufacturer Warranty posts are stocked, we recommend 100mm x 100mm posts as a minimum size. Our featheredge and TGV 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 the 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.
