Installing double gates between posts


Reference: Midsummer Gates 


Below is a diagram for hanging a double gates between posts, gates can be of unequal lengths. We suggest a 20mm spacing between gates for possible adjustment in the future. We  have also added the approximate measurement for the distance between the post and the gate for individual pieces of hardware. Both gates will open a full 90° and if using rising hinge sets the end of each gate will lift approximately 70mm per meter length of gate to 90°, so a 3.00m gate will at its end and at 90° lift approximately 210mm of the ground. Posts should be at least 135mm square.


Hinge sets are shown in this order,  1: ADJUSTABLE HINGE SET WITH HOOK ON PLATES   2: ADJUSTABLE HINGE SET WITH TOP HOOK TO BOLT AND BOTTOM HOOK TO DRIVE  3: ADJUSTABLE AND RISING HINGE SET WITH ROCKER PLATE. We also show a selection of closing latches and extras, all available to order with your gate from our hardware store. If you need any advice please contact us.
