Yes, select custom gate size and enter the exact width size you require the gate to be. Please select the next size up from the custom width you have entered. Our gate heights come as standard and are not adjustable.

Do I need to purchase posts or can I use the existing posts I already have?

The minimum recommended width of posts is 100mm, if this is the width of your current posts then in most cases the answer is yes. As aluminium is a lightweight material our gates can be fixed onto wood, metal, brick or concrete posts, as long as they are structurally sound and aren’t suffering with any rot, crumbling or damage.

However, if you require posts we have 100mm and 150mm aluminium posts available which can be matched to your gate.

Posts are available in the following sizes:

100mm x 100mm x 2400mm (suitable for all Garden Gates or smaller sized Driveway Gates)

100mm x 100mm x 3000mm (suitable for all Garden Gates or smaller sized Driveway Gates)

150mm x 150mm x 2400mm (suitable for either Driveway or Garden Gates)

150mm x 150mm x 3000mm (suitable for either Driveway or Garden Gates)

On installation the posts can also be cut down to the required size. Complete the finished look with an Aluminium Post Cap.

How can I fill the extra space between the width I need and the width of the gate?

Depending on the size of the gap that needs to be filled, we suggest ordering the aluminium gate posts to help with this issue.
