CONTEMPORARY DOUBLE GATES:
Q / How far apart do I need the posts or pillars on a Contemporary double gate?
A / You will need to allow between 15mm - 35mm (ideally 20mm) between gate edge and post on each side.
Example: Hinge side 20mm + 20mm + middle gap 10mm and gate width = width between posts or pillars.
Same example for all contemporary double gate styles
Q / How high do I need my posts?
A / On the hinge side, you will need at least 100mm higher post to allow for the top and bottom hinges.
Example: Bottom hinge 35mm + top hinge allowance 65mm + gate example of 1800mm high = 1900mm floor to top of post.
NOTE* If you are under ground automating, you will need to adjust the height of the post to allow for the automation recommended floor clearance.
