How to Measure Gates



Calculating the size of the gates you require is straightforward. It is vital that you take accurate measurements so that we can provide the exact product and precise service you expect. The most important aspect is to allow additional space for posts if you are planning to use them. Dimensions for the posts required are stated on the web page for that specific page.

If you require any addition help or information from us you can either e-mail us (sales@thegateworkshop.co.uk) or call one of our Customer Services team on 01543 462500.

Metal Gates and Railings

All widths stated relate to the space you want to fill with a metal gate. The Gate Workshop craftsman made metal gates automatically allow for the hinges supplied with that gate.

Hanging with Posts
If you plan to hang your metal gates on posts you need to allow extra space for them. Dimensions for the posts required are stated on the web page for that specific gate.

Hanging on Brickwork & Walls
1) If you plan to hang your metal gates directly from brickwork or walls you need to measure the overall gap you wish to fill.
2) All of our metal gates come with adjustable hinges allowing for a small degree of flexibility. If ordering a pair of metal gates allow a small gap where the two will join in the centre. If ordering a gate to be hung from the right or the left, make your selection viewed from the roadside or front of your premises.
3) All of our metal gates allow for a 2" (5cm) ground clearance under the gate. i.e. the actual gate size is 2" (5cm) smaller than the measurement given.
4) Metal gates come primed in black and require a top coat as soon as hung. All quoted weights are approximate and relate to the largest gate of a specific range.

Wooden Gates

All widths stated relate to the size of The Gate Workshop wooden gates you wish to order.

Hanging with Posts
1) We do not particularly recommend hanging wooden gates directly from brickwork or walls and that you use wooden posts.
2) For a pair of wooden gates allow 1/4 - 1/2 inch gap where the two will join in the centre and a similar amount each side to accommodate the hinges near the posts.
3) If ordering a gate to be hung from the right or the left, make your selection viewed from the roadside or front of your premises.
4) All of our wooden gates are supplied as actual sizes not including the 2" (5cm) ground clearance under the gate. i.e. a 6'' gate, when hung will measure 6'' 2'''' from the ground.
5) All wooden gates are made in Scandinavian Redwood and need treating with a high quality preservative prior to hanging. All quoted weights are approximate and relate to the largest gate of a specific range.

Please note that without prior warning we reserve the right to change, improve or modify the products within our range. If these changes are significant we will always advise you of them prior to dispatching your order to you.
