Premium Range Gates

  • All timber used in the construction of your Premium Range  gates has been high pressure treated green using Tanlith E, tested in accordance with the requirement of BS EN 599-1 & treated in accordance with the penetration and retention requirements given in BC 8417. User classes are defined in BS EN 335-1. As a minimum standard timber used will confirm with UC2 & UC3.
  • Please note ‘sawn’ timber will not have a prepared smooth surface unlike prepared timber such as TGV (tongue & groove with a V joint) boarding or PSE (prepared square edge) timber. Sawn finished timber has a rough sawn finish. If you require your HAYMAC timber product to have a smooth finish please choose one of our products which has a prepared finish, if in any doubt please contact us for more information. Timber products which are quoted for using timber sizes as stated ‘ex.’ means the nominal timber size which the timber started at before planning to actual finished working size. On average ‘ex.’ sizes for timbers are 5mm smaller than the nominal starting timber size for example ex.100mm will finish to circa 95mm and ex.50mm will finish to circa 45mm.
  • For 6ft high  gates the posts are concreted into the ground to a minimum depth of 600mm or ¼ of the length of the post used for shorter or taller  gates.
  • Timber gate posts –unless stated –will be sawn & treated 100mm x 100mm in cross section with a 4-way weathered top and a post saver sleeve fitted to aid longevity. You have the choice not to have a post saver sleeve fitted to your gate post and you can choose the style of post top you wish to have but please let us know prior to installation or your new gate will be installed using our default standard.
  • Our Premium Range closeboarded clad gates (using sawn 2ex.22mm x 100mm feather edge boards) and TGV clad gates (using Ex.19mm x 100mm saw falling grade redwood TGV) are fully Tanalised. 
  • The height of your gate will be the overall maximum height, for Closeboarded and TGV clad flat top gates this will be the overall height of the gate, for bow top gates this will be the maximum height to the top of the bow with the shoulder of the gate being approximately 150mm lower. For Premium Range Spindle flat top and bow top gates the maximum height will be at the gate style tops with the gate head being approx 65mm lower.
  • Gates quoted as 6ft high will be 1.78m high at the highest point allowing for a 50mm gap beneath the gate , the 50mm gap raises the gate to 1.83m high (6ft).
  • Standard single pedestrian gates are 900mm wide. The available opening width after installation, allowing for gate stops will be approximately 875mm.
  • Gate styles are ex. 50mm x 100mm PSE redwood, ledges and braces are ex. 38mm x 100mm PSE redwood. The construction method used in the manufacture of our Premium Range gates in our workshops is the traditional full frame, ledged and braced frame work with morticed and tenoned, glued & star doweled joints-making for a very strong construction.
  • Premium Range gate ironmongery for single gates is 2 x galvanised 450mm Tee hinges, 1 x galvanised 125mm ring latch and 2 x galvanised 150mm Brenton sliding pad bolt-padlock not supplied.

  • If you have been quoted for a long throw key lock the standard key lock is operated with a key from both sides of the gate, the lock comes with 5 keys alike.
  • Premium Range gates are hung from and closed to a minimum 100mm x 100mm gate post with post saver sleeve fitted or where the gate is hung from or closed to a building a 45mm x 100mm Tanalised timber wall plate will be mechanically fixed direct to the building and used to replace the gate post.
  • Please note that as standard all gates will open inwards (away from you) when viewed from the front. Single gates will be supplied and installed left hand hanging. All paired gates will have the right-hand leaf opening first unless specifically quoted otherwise.
  • Your gate will be installed with approximately 8mm gate shut gap widths between the gate and the hanging and closing gate post or wall plate to allow the gate to swell and move during periods of high ambient moisture.
  • We recommend that you stain or paint your gate after installation to help protect your new gate from the outside environment. Please download of information sheet on how to weather proof, paint and care for your new  your gates.
