NOTES TO HELP YOU ORDER
It is most important to give exact measurements between existing walls or wood posts - we make all allowances for hinges etc. Please use steel tape.

STEEL POSTS
If you are ordering our steel posts please give exact opening that gates and posts have to fill. eg 3' opening plus a pair of 2" posts will require an opening if 3' 4".

LATCH POSITION
On single gates when looking at the front of the gate from the road, which side do you require the latch, left or right?
On double gates the latch is normally on the right hand gate looking from the road unless requested otherwise.

MATERIAL SPECIFICATION
On 3' high single and double gates up to 8' 6" the outer frame is 1" x 1/4" (25mm x 6mm). On 9' pairs and larger and on side entrance gates we use 1" x 3/8" (25mm x 10mm). Internal bars on all Thornton designs are 3/8" round (10mm). All other gates have 3/8 square bars.
Frames of all larger gates i.e. 12' x 3' and 8' x 5' pairs and larger are made from heavy gauge 1" square hollow section. This makes them stronger and more rigid and lighter in weight.
All materials are hand straightened before assembly and afterwards cleaned and then fully immersed in a tank of black oxide paint to ensure good protective coating or can be supplied gal vanised at extra cost. Quotation by return.

SPECIAL SIZES CREATE NO PROBLEMS FOR US
If your opening falls between stock sizes these can be made specially for you, the cost will be the same as the next larger size.
If there should be any problems please do not hesitate to contact us for professional advice from our experienced staff.
