Measuring Guide and Delivery Times
Before you complete your purchase for your gates or railings you need to make sure that you are ordering the correct size.
The widths shown are the size between your posts or pillars and NOT the actual size of the gate or railing.
To work out the size needed you will need to measure (as accurately as possible) the distance between your posts or pillars and this is the size / width that you will need to order.
The heights of the gates and railings shown are the actual height, measured from the bottom to the highest point of the gate or railing. When checking the height of the item needed please do not forget to allow for ground clearance, typically 6cm for gates and 4cm for railings.
If you are having any trouble working out the size required please contact us – we are always happy to help.
When ordering a gate, please let us know if you require:
- The gate to be hung from the left or the right
- Opening inward or outward (when looking from the outside of the property in)
Please place this information in the “messages” section of the checkout. If no message is left, the gate will be made to hang off the left opening inwards.
As most of our items are handmade to order in our workshop, from receiving cleared payment the (approximate) delivery times are as follows:
Just painted gates and railings – 5 to 10 working days.
Galvanised and painted gates and railings – 20 to 27 working days.
For larger items (such as gates and railings) you will be contacted when your item is ready to ship to arrange a delivery date. For smaller items we will not contact you, your item will be shipped as soon as it is ready.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
