Not only are composite driveway gates better for the environment, you'll never have to worry about staining or treating it ever again...just simply hose the gate down!
Included with the Gate:
- Longlife powder coated frame (in black - optional extra to colour match with the cladding)

Benefits of Composite Gates:
Composite Cladding Options:
Four options available as standard. Stone grey, Oak, Granite and Walnut.
Frame Colour Choice: (optional extra - black frame as standard)
*Please note: Frames will not be an exact match to cladding. Please expect several shades different between cladding colour and frame.
- Width: from 6ft (each side 3ft) to a massive 20ft (each side 10ft)
- Height: from 4ft to 6ft 6"- taken to the highest point of the gate.
- Made to Measure - all gates online can be purchased to the nearest inch, if you do require a more precise size, please contact us. (Unlike others - there is NO additional cost for bespoke, we simply base price on the next size!).
- Due to the weight of these gates. We only recommend "below ground" posts for support or install to existing pillars (as long as the pillar is structurally sound).
Calculating Driveway Gate Size:
Option 1: Gate hanging on the rear of posts/ pillars. Main advantage of this set up is the reduced gap that is visible between the gate edge and post.
To calculate gate width: Take the lowest measurement and reduce by 50mm (2").
- Take three measurements between existing posts/ pillars - top, middle and bottom (as below).
- Take the smallest of the three widths and reduce as follows: (depending on gate set up)
Option 2: Gate mounted between existing posts/ pillars.
To calculate gate width:
Take the lowest measurement and reduce by 150mm (6").

Calculating the actual width required of a wooden driveway gate is easy...just follow these simple steps below.
- Take three measurements between existing pillars or posts.
- Reduce the LOWEST size by 40mm (or approx 1.5")
- That's it! The size left after the reduction is the gate width required. Online, we offer gate width's to the nearest inch, simply select the closest size (lower) from the drop down menu - or call to order for an exact width.
Please note: If no pillars or posts on there, measure the opening and reduce by 2 x posts. Gates up to 10ft wide should use 100mm x 100mm (4" x 4") posts, over 10ft use 150mm x 150mm (6" x 6") posts.

Measuring for Automated Gates:
For above ground automation, rear hung on the back of the posts take the smallest measurement and reduce by 50mm (this will give you the actual gate size to order).
For above ground automation, hung in the centre of the posts take the smallest measurement and reduce by 150mm (this will give you the actual gate size to order).
For below ground automation, rear hung on the back of the posts take the smallest measurement and plus 20mm (this will give you the actual gate size to order).
For below ground automation, rear hung in the centre of the posts take the smallest measurement and reduce by 240mm (this will give you the actual gate size to order).
Images are used to show the style of gate and have been computer generated. A Sample of wood used in construction is available on request. Width advertised is total width of gate. For example, if you select a width of 9ft, you will receive 2 leafs at 4ft 6". Height is taken to the highest point of gate. Rear view design can differ from image shown depending on the width of gate and/ or height.
