Total Gap Explained
When adding a side panel to your gate order, you will notice that when you order the gate that we ask for your total gap. This includes the gate and two posts. So when ordering the side panel you will need to give us the remaining distance. The remaining distance will include the panel and one post only. This way the panel will fit into the gate post and the post supplied with the panel.
Example: You have a 1500mm overall gap for the gate and side panel to fit between. You require a gate total gap of 1200mm. Due to a path width, etc
This means you have another 300mm for the side panel and one post to fit between. Our posts are 75mm square, giving you a 225mm side panel, plus one post = 300mm. So in the total gap please put the remaining distance in (Example) 300mm
We will always take away one post from the total gap given and make the side panel to suit.
Post Type Explained = Most gate and side panel scenarios are two outer walls for the outer posts to be fixed too, but the middle post is always hard to secure due to ground type. Below we have the options to secure the middle post. Depending on what option you chose the post supplied with this product, will most likely become the middle post and one of the posts that come with the gate will become an outer post. This way you can purchase the gate and side panel direct from us and it will all fit correctly.
3″ Standard Plastic Post = A post at 1830mm long, the same size as our standard gate posts. This is best suited If you have solid ground under your gate and side panel. If you then purchase a solid floor fixing from our fixings page. This post can be fixed to the ground using the solid floor fixing.
3″ Standard Plastic Post Cut Longer = Our standard post cut longer by 300-400mm to cement into the ground. Best suited If you ground is not solid under the gate and side panel. Selecting a top brace bar also works well with this option. The top brace bar can be removed quickly and easily if required.
4″ Aluminum Post = These can only be cemented into the ground, but it gives you the ultimate fixing. This will also allow you to hang the gate off the middle post if required rather than the post fixed to the wall. Due to the different post size this will not work with a top brace bar.
