Please note that when hanging gates the sizes given are quoted using the fittings supplied by Charltons.

These are intended as a guide only and are not instructions for hanging gates. We recommend that an experienced installer fit manual gates and a qualified installer fit automated electric gates. Further information on qualified installers can be obtained from Gate Safe or DHF (Door & Hardwear Federation).

Automated electric gates must have a heavy duty rail on 5 Bar Gates and a heavy duty bottom rail on Courtyard & Driveway gates. We also recommend that gates are treated with a Modern UV oil (click here for more details).
