8 foot tall dual leaf driveway gate with space for the gates to swing back and forth with hardware. Includes 2 1/2" support posts/frame with 1 5/8 bracing. Consists of two independent panels that can swing either way, coming together in the middle to latch to each other. One of the panels secures to the ground with a an included drop rod. These gates are a nice design because you can open part of the gate for person access or the entire large opening for vehicle or machine access.
Note on no-climb hardware: This hardware is designed to work
with our no-climb fence kits. You will need to use your existing fencing to
attach to the no-climb gate extenders. If you choose this option, please be
aware that your large gate can either:
1) Have a permanent canopy across the
top of your large gate entrance. Depending on the height of your gate, this
means that if you wanted to drive a vehicle through the gate you would be
driving under the canopy. It?s not necessarily an issue but you?ll need to make
sure you have clearance. The gate can swing either way (in or out) with this
2) Have no-climb hardware that swings
with the gate. This means that when you open or close the gate, the overhead
no-climb hardware and canopy moves with the gate out of the way; overhead
clearance is completely free. The disadvantage with this setup is that the gate
can only swing in one direction, which is in towards the no-climb
hardware. For example, if you have a fence installed to keep your cats in with
the no-climb extenders pointed inwards to prevent cats from climbing out, this
driveway gate can only open inwards in this configuration.
Ground sleeves can also be added as an option instead of or in addition to concrete. Sleeves have a locking set screw to make these gates permanent or removable. Large ground sleeves are 30" long and require one large driving anvil (different from standard driving anvil used with smaller post sleeves that come with fence kits). One large anvil will work with a infinite number of large sleeves.
Note: large driving anvils work with both large and small sleeves (as used in side braces).
Note: concrete footings are suggested for gates wider than 12 feet. Sleeves can still be used to make the gate removable but concrete should still be used for proper leverage.
