Our Estate Vinyl Gate 10′ and 12′ doubles should always be supported with wheels. The Estate Vinyl gate must have steel frames so they also have a little weight, if you do not put them on blocks when closed or wheels they will pull the post and sag over time. It does not matter if you use a gate post insert and concrete, they will sag if you do not support them. You can also add a center brace to your gates for $50 per gate, this is recommended for 12′ gates specifically. Make sure you do this as there is no return or warranty on gates.
Estate Vinyl gates Instructions
You MUST measure your gate before setting your post. If the gate is coming from the manufacture we do not know if the gate you ordered will be the exact size as your invoice or if it is made to fit the opening. For instance, a 4′ gate on your invoice may not be 48″ it might be 46″ and is made to fit a 48″ opening.
Single gates: Add 2″ to the width of the gate. For instance a 4′ gate would have an opening of 4′ 2″
Double Gates: Add 3″ to the width of both gates. For instance 2 – 4′ gates would have an opening of 8′ 3″
Estate Vinyl Gate Kits From Wholesale Vinyl
All of our kit gates come with internal steel frames!
Gates include heavy duty powdercoated steel latch, hinges, galvanized drop rod and a steel/aluminum gate post insert!
Its always best to assemble your gate and measure before you set your post. You want to add 1″ per hinge and latch gap to the width of the gate.
Your gates are the size you ordered. Pickets are not included with the gate, you must order an additional picket pack. The pickets in the box are just packing material.
Custom Width Instructions
Please watch this video on your gate assembly. After you set your post, get your measurements and cut your rails and steel down. Make sure you cut your steel 3/8” shorter than the rails, this accounts for the welds on the pegs. (this is not a step in the video since your gates are outside our standard kits) General rule of thumb is to have an inch gap. If you want an inch gap here is the formula to cut the rails and steel.
Double Gates: The opening ÷ 2 – 4 3/4 = rail – 3/8” = steel.
For instance: 120” ÷ 2 = 60” 60” – 4 3/4 = 55 1/4 = rail…… 55 1/4-3/8 = 54 7/8 = steel.
Single Gates: The opening minus 5 1/4 = Rail – 3/8” = steel
For Instance: 48 – 5 1/4 = 42 3/4 = rail – 3/8 = steel which is 42 3/8

We build solid steel frames for our vinyl and wood gates. The vinyl gate has a full metal inclosed frame wrapped in the vinyl material. That way you get the great look of a vinyl gate and have the strength and the adjustability you will need. Gates need to be adjusted about every 6 months to a year. That is caused by the temperature changes and and ground movement. Our latches have adjustments built in to them for ease of adjustment when needed.
