Please be aware: Due to the natural variability of materials used in the manufacture of timber field and entrance gates, the gates are prone to some movement such as bows and twists in the timber components as they weather. This is natural and should not be considered as a defect, having no impact on the durability of the gate itself. When correctly fitted, the adjustable hinge sets, catches, centre gate stop and drop bolts are all intended to help keep the gates clear of the ground and in line also allowing for adjustment if gates do move.
Hanging gates ‘between’ posts is therefore not recommended as this prevents the gate hinges being adjusted for such natural movement. We understand that sometimes gates have to be installed between posts due to restrictions at the install location, or the alignment of the gate is treated as less critical and a compromise with its function etc. and for this reason we have continued to include the option of installing gates between posts in this builder.
