Advice on hanging driveway/field gates

We often get asked advice on ‘Gate Hanging’ but there is no one set answer that we can give – each installation tends to have something a little different. Wherever possible we would recommend that you enlist an experienced tradesman to hang your gates for you.

Left hand or right hand hanging?
When selecting a gate you might be asked whether you want your gate left hanging or right hanging. To decide 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 handed. The hanging stile (gate upright) is normally wider than the latching stile but on our diamond braced gates they are both made the same.

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 gate sizes and posts and hanging sets

Our most popular sized gates are stocked in sizes from 3’ up to 12’, other sizes available to order. Below we have listed our normal recommended sizes of gate posts and hanging sets for them. There is a very small difference in price between the larger and smaller sets, if in doubt buy the larger rather than the smaller sizes.
