Chester Driveway Gates

Our Chester driveway gates shown in Scandinavian Redwood (painted)..

Usually suited to smaller gates in height, the Chester feature a criss cross design in the top section.

The timbers forming this section are jointed together (halving joint) and are morticed and tenon jointed into the top rail & centre rail of the gates.

Number of subsections in the top section of the gates will vary depending on gate width!

Optional cover strip sits over the 10mm clearance gap between the two gates in the centre. Supplied loose for fixing once gates have been hung.
