The Francombe Wrought Iron Estate Gate - Manufactured by hand in the UK by skilled craftsmen using the finest materials to provide ultimate durability and quality. This design is constructed using our Premium Frame, which includes chunkier 40mm x 40mm side and bottom rail and thicker 16mm diameter infill bars resulting in a much sturdier and higher quality appearance gate. All of our gates come complete with a 10 year workmanship guarantee, adjustable hinges, latch, 2 x drop boltsWidth of Gate: Taken as if both sides were touching each other. For example, a width from the drop down menu of 10ft (3m 048mm) would be 2 x 5ft wide. If you are measuring a gap between existing posts/ pillars, we recommend reducing the opening size by 6" (150mm) to allow for hinge/ pins and centre clearance.
Height of Gate: Taken to the highest point of each gate. We recommend allowing a 50mm (2") clearance between the bottom edge of gate and driveway (as long as the drive is level). If you require a more exact height, please contact us to order.Gate Feature Options: Add style to your gate, select from feature Fleur De Lys, Ball or without.
How to Measure Gate Width:
Working out the required size is an important yet simple task to complete but we are always at hand to assist you through the process (0800 6124 965)
Calculating Driveway Gate width between existing Pillars or Posts:
Take three measurements, top, middle and bottom (as below).
Take the shortest of the three measurements and reduce by 150mm (or 6"). This allows for the hinge (inc pins) and centre opening gap. The final figure will be the actual width of gate required.
For example: Top: 3m 455mm | Middle: 3m 450mm | Bottom: 3m 445mm - shortest measurement would be 3m 445mm - reduce by 150mm = Actual Gate Width of: 3m 295mm
