8 foot tall access gate with support frame and top bar (connects hinge post and latch post)
Access gate details:
Includes hinge side post, latch side post and hardware
Access gates use the fence mesh from your fence kit (the gates are universal to all types of fencing) no fencing is included
6ft gates and taller have a bar across the top that connect the hinge side post with the latch side post for stability. Shorter gates (5 1/2ft tall and shorter) include a middle bar which is installed across the center of the gate. Optionally, you can add two diagonal 1 3/8 braces. Choose 1 3/8 braces with 1 5/8 hardware found here: braces
Access gates use the same 1 5/8 support posts as found in our line posts. These are US made steel posts which are galvanized inside and out then black powder coated. The rest of the gate consists of the same tubular steel with the same coating and finish in a smaller 1 3/8 size.
Access gates are shipped to be installed in concrete - as an added option, you can order with your gate to be installed in ground sleeves like our line posts. Ground sleeves require a driving anvil tool but do not require concrete. A standard driving anvil tool is found here: driving anvil Ground sleeves are driven into the ground with a sledge hammer; support posts then telescope inside the sleeves. This also makes the access gate (along with your line posts) completely removable for larger equipment access or seasonal take down. Matching galvanized caps are available to cover the ground sleeves if you need them, found here: cap for ground sleeves
No-climb hardware notes:
This hardware is designed to work with our no-climb fence kits. No-climb post extenders mount above the access gate; using your existing fencing, you'll continue the canopy above the access gate.
Please keep in mind that the height of the gate includes the canopy if you choose this hardware. For example, a 7 1/2 foot tall gate with no-climb hardware is 7 1/2 feet from the ground to the top of the no-climb post extender. This means that the top bar on a 7 1/2 foot no-climb gate is really closer to 6 1/2 feet from the ground (you loose some actual gate height to make space for the no-climb canopy above).
