Our 10′ and 12′ double gates should always be supported with wheels. Our gates 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. 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 $100 per gate, this is recomended for 12′ gates specifically. Make sure you do this as there is no return or warranty on gates.
All gates have internal steel frames!
Gates include heavy duty powdercoated steel latch, hinges, galvanized drop rod and a steel/aluminum gate post insert!

You must measure your gate before setting your post. Some gates are built to fit the opening ordered and some gates are built to the size ordered. For instance, if you order a 4′ gate it might measure 46″ or 48″
When setting the post, add 1″ per hinge and latch gap to the width of the gate.
Standard Privacy 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.
Set your gate post at the width we sell, for a 4′ gate set your post 4′ inside to inside. Your pickets will come with your fence. The pickets in the box are just packing material. Watch this video https://youtu.be/vDcSLnd1_8g
Custom Privacy 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
