What size gate can i get?
Standard Walk gates span from 3’ utility openings up to 5’ small equipment openings. Gates should always try to be hinged off of the fence line instead of an independent post. Latch posts are always suggested to receive the striker, do not mount the latch to your house or siding, as it may cause damage when the gate slams closed.
Drive Gates are usually 10’ openings and can be larger if required for larger turn radiuses and/ or equipment. Typically drive gates are a pair of swing gates not just a single gate leaf. The maximum opening for a gate is determined by the material used. For example a light weight chain link gate can easily be 30’ where a cedar or vinyl gate maxes out around 14’ due to the structure and weight. (Frames can be custom built to create larger sized gates). Drive gates can also be constructed to run with the fence line, these gates are called cantilevers or rolling gates. These gates will require the fence line to be longer than the gate opening in order to fully open.
Post size will play a major factor in the gate size. The correct diameter and material should be used for each application. This may range from a 2 3/8” schedule 40 pipe all the way up to an 8 5/8” schedule 40 pipe. Speak to a fencing professional before setting your posts.
Gates are built to fit an opening or the posts should be set to the gate size plus hardware. If you have set your posts, measure the “gate opening” from the inside of the post to the inside of the other post and the gate will be built in accordance to that opening and space required for hardware.
