How to measure your gate and RAL colours



Measuring the gate is very important and should be checked at least a couple of times to be sure of no mistakes !!!

It is important to measure the opening at the base of the posts and at the top in the case of existing posts being used.


All views are from the outside looking towards the property.

For accuracy and so there is no confusion with sizes, millimeters mm (metric) are used.


Contemporary Gates & fencing are available in 10 factory standard colours, 8 colour options and 2 wood colours, 
Light Oak, Teak    (Extra charges apply for special colour options and wood colours) See choices below 


Traditional gates & fencing are available in any RAL colour.

Below is a couple of sketches to help you plan your gate and sizes.


State the directions of the opening of the gate or gates as if looking from road towards the property





















Please note that you must allow for at least 85mm - 100mm above the gates for the top hinges, as the gates are hinged above and below the gates.

If using new posts or pillars, state the measurement from the outside of the posts.


If using existing posts or pillars, state the measurement at the base to the top of the gate (B) and to top of post or pillar (D)
