Measure Guide

DRIVEWAY GATES

 

Follow these simple and easy steps from BK Timber and have the perfect gate for you...

Take two measurements from the top (A) and bottom of the gate (B) , the shortest measurement will be the measurement you use to calculate the gate size.

Reduce the measurement by 25mm (1inch) to take into consideration the gap required for your fixing kit.

We recommend when fitting a gate to a brick pillar or wall you use additional posts to support the gate.

The posts we would recommend for this would be 95mm x 70mm (3 ¾ inch x 2 ¾ inch). When fitting a gate to free standing posts we recommend a post size of 150mm x 150mm (6inch x 6inch) to support the gate.

The height of all posts come as standard for you to cut to size dependant on how you are fixing the gate (freestanding in the ground).

Please allow enough clearance from the ground for your gate to open.
