What do the sizes refer to?

All the width measurement shown within our online store refer to the gap size into which the gate, fence or railings will fit into (including the space needed for the hinges, latch or fixing). Under no circumstances do these measurements refer to the physical width of the item. For more information read the measuring guide or contact us today to discuss further.


What do the heights refer to?

Depending on the design you choose we may list the height in 2 different ways so pay careful attention to this if you have any height restrictions such as copings on pillars, overhangs on walls and soffits of garages.

Physical Height  - This measurement refers to the total height of the item prior to installing it and makes no allowance for ground clearance. We usually recommend a minimum of 50mm for clearance is allowed for however this may need to increase if your ground is sloping so make sure you factor this in when ordering.

Height (once installed) - This refers to the fitted height (making an allowance of 50mm  of ground clearance). The physical height is 50mm smaller.
