Calculate Your Gate Sizes

Take measurements of the top, middle and bottom (see image). Use the smallest measurement.

To calculate your gate width, use the instructions below and make the necessary deductions.

Garden/Side Gate: Minus 20mm (4/5″)
Wall posts are 70mm thick, so take this into account for your brick to brick size.
2x posts are 140mm in total.

Example: For a side gate with brick to brick size of 900mm requiring two wall posts either side.
900 – 140 – 20 = 740mm

Driveway Gates: Minus 40mm (1.5″). Driveway gates are supplied with a clapperboard. Leave 15mm each side, plus 10mm in the centre totalling 40mm.
Wall posts for double gates are 70mm thick, so take this into account for your brick to brick size.
2x posts are 140mm in total.

Example: For a driveway gate with a brick to brick size of 3 metres requiring two wall posts either side.
3000 – 140 – 40 = 2820mm

The height is from the bottom of the gate to the top of the stiles (horns) of the gate.

Driveway gates with curved tops are measured from the side stiles, rising into the centre. Lymm and Appleton design gates increase around 100mm-150mm to the centre depending on the width. Swan neck and Chester design gates increase around 150mm-200mm to the centre depending on the width.
