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 Garden Gates)
  • 150mm x 150mm x 2400mm (suitable for either Driveway or Pedestrian Gates)
  • 150mm x 150mm x 3000mm (suitable for either Driveway or Pedestrian Gates)

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

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

Width:

These measurements need to be taken at 3 levels; ground, midway and at the top of your posts. If by any chance these 3 measurements differ, go by the smallest measurement.

**Please do not forget to take into consideration space for the hinges**

 

Height:

This is personal choice, our standard heights are 1600mm, 1700mm and 1800mm.

If you are using your existing posts take a measurement from ground level to the top of the post less 100mm to accommodate fixtures and fittings according to your maximum height preference.
