From post to post at their top, from post to post at the bottom, and from post to post half way up. Then deduct 100mm from each measure and communicate us the shortest taken.
If you are hanging your gate between existing posts, we need to know:
- The width of the gate. Measure the width of the opening between your two posts, this will give you the width of the gate that you require. We suggest you take at least 3 measurements, from the top of the gate posts and from the bottom of the gate posts, in case they are not standing completely straight. In the case that they are not straight, use the shortest of your measurements when making your 100mm reduction calculation.
- The height of the gate. Measure the height from the highest point of the gate to the ground, and reduce this by 50mm (this is how much space we recommend you allow between the underside of the gate and the ground). If the ground is uneven you may need to allow more space.
