HOW TO ORDER MADE TO MEASURE GATES
Click on the ‘Made to Measure’ button with the tape measure,this will open a screen for you to enter your sizes for an instant quote.
STEP 1 – Enter the Gate Width
The gate width is the total physical width of the pair of gates from side to side
NOTES: Wooden gates look best when fitted virtually flush to the posts but you must allow an expansion gap of at least 20mm for a pair of gates as wood will expand and contract with the changes in temperature and humidity. Therefore the width of the double gates you order should be at least 20mm less than your gap to allow for expansion of the timber.
STEP 2 – Enter the Gate Height
The gate height is the distance from the bottom of the frame to the highest point in the gate. The gate height is the physical height of the gate itself and does not include any ground clearance, which would typically be 25mm (1") or more if your ground slopes.
NOTES: If your posts are 1000mm above ground and you want the top of the gates to be level with the top of the post, you should enter a height of 975mm or less depending on how much ground clearance you will need.
Once you have entered your measurements, your made to measure quotation will be displayed. This is the total price, including VAT and delivery (excluding Highlands & Islands). When you are ready, click "Add to Basket" and go through the checkout to complete your purchase.

Fittings: The Drayton gates are not supplied with any fittings; however an optional fittings pack is available which includes a drop bolt plus the correct size hinges and latch for this weight of gate. The fittings we have available are galvanised to prevent rust. Each gate has three horizontal braces on the back. Hinges should be fitted to the top and bottom brace.
Wooden Posts: Posts should be dug in approximately 42.5cm deep and held in place with concrete, or bolted to the wall using masonry bolts or frame fixing screws. A small gap must be left between the post and the gate to allow for expansion of the wood.
Finish: The Drayton gates are supplied pressure treated which leaves the wood with a temporary green tint. If left to weather, the wood will fade to a silvery grey colour; however you can change the colour straight away by staining the wood using Protek Timber Eco Shield, or it can be painted after it has been allowed to weather for at least 3 months using a product compatible for use with pressure treated timber.
