Q: How to I work out what hand gate I need (hanging stile)

A: Most of our 5 Bar gates have one stile that is larger for hanging the gate. To work out which you need stand outside facing the property and which ever side is where you want the gate to be hinged is the hanging side i.e. if you want the gate to be hung on the left hand side looking in you will need a left hand hand gate.


Q: Can I fit two gates as a pair across my entrance?
