Security around our property is important, and adding a substantial gate is essential. Single wooden or side entry gates are often positioned between wooden fence panels to give access to a back garden and are made in styles to match the decorative fencing.
Tongue and groove options are robust as the interlocking timbers add extra strength, especially with the additional bracing. Feather edge or closeboard are two additional styles that offer a great affordable option. Some have a dip treatment at the factory or are pressure treated prior to manufacture. Traditional front garden gates and low picket styles are an important boundary option, and they come in 3 or 4-foot heights, ideal when you need to have a vista beyond your front door. Solid double driveway styles are sold in pairs, with designs offering a decorative arch top or simple straight tops. They have the option to add robust gate posts, designed to be large enough to take the weight of these sturdy gates.
It is best to purchase these posts alongside the gates to get the most appropriate size. Most gate designs can be selected in width sizes, so measure the actual opening prior to purchase. A great example is a farm gate, with options running from 90cm wide up to 360cm, with many sizes between. This variance in sizes available ensures you can purchase a gate that fits without the need for an expensive made to measure option.
Before you decide on the gate, you may wish to look at the different wooden fencing options, as these are designed in the same style as the gates and can be purchased together.
