Field gates are one of our most popular collections and best known for keeping livestock within fields and restricted areas. They’re versatility and durable structure means that they can be used for a number of projects and designs. We have three different types of field gates available which includes our Diamond Brace Field gate, Planed 5 bar Field gate or our Exbourne Curved Heel Gate. We have two kinds of Diamond Brace gates available: 5 bar or 6 bar gates. The 6-bar gate is designed to keep the smaller animals in the allocated area by decreasing the size of the spaces between each rail whilst also implementing a secure and stronger structure. The Diamond Brace Field gate is extremely popular within the farming community due to the 4”x 3” top rail adding great stability to the gate and making it super sturdy.
All three styles of gates are available in sizes from 3ft to 12ft proving that we can supply all types of field entrances, yards and maybe even driveways with the suitable gate. As standard, the diamond brace and planed 5 bar gates come as 4ft high, however the Exbourne has a turned heel hanging style which is 63.5” high. The Exbourne is made from a Kiln Dried Scandinavian Redwood, the Diamond Brace is made from a joinery softwood and the planed 5 bar is made from Larch. All three gates have been treated with a tanalith pressure treatment in a natural wood green, again displaying long lasting and durable qualities great for its purpose.
To help with the instalment process of your gates, we have recommended some fixings, hangings and posts for each field gate which you will need to install your gates. For all three types of gates, we recommend using 6”x 6” posts for any gate up to 6ft wide and then 7”x 7” for any gate in excess of 6ft up to 10ft and then any gates from 10ft to 12ft, we would propose using 8”x 8” posts. Our Oak posts are also available and suitable for any type of field gate. In terms of the hangings, we have available 24” adjustable hinge sets to hang the gates onto the posts. Do allow a 4” gap between the post and gate when hanging. If there are two gates being hung next to each other, a double gate latch set is needed to secure the two gates together. If there is just one gate however, a self-locking latch is required which catches the gate stopping it from moving.
Hopefully this has given you a better idea of the type of gates that we sell and encourages you to purchase one yourself.
