Measuring Guide

Here at UK Gates 4U, we understand that choosing a gate may be a stressful process, therefore we can promise that our craftsmen will work hard to maintain the quality and precision of the gates that we produce.

Not only do we make our products tailored to your home or property, we also have a free guide with tips on how to measure the area where you require a gate. These tips will make the process simple so that you can start designing your gate in no time, and of course you can contact us whenever you like and we will help you every step of the way!

Listed below are guidelines for both driveway gates and garden gates. We recommend that you follow each step carefully so that each measurement is accurate. You can even download our driveway size guide for more information.

 

DRIVEWAY GATES

measuringguide01

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.
