Joggles are the protrusions on top corners of the gates, these give the mortice & tenon joints strength. As standard the joggles are arched/curved.
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.
50/50 split is where both gates of the pair are the same size. Unequally split gives you one gate larger than the other so one gate can be used as a pedestrian access gate.
Maximum width of a single gate is 2000mm. Please state preferred width of gates for split. For example if total width is 3000mm, you can state 1000mm and 2000mm.
Which gate is the smaller gate when viewed from the front? Left or Right.
Example of the open boarding within a gate
Open Boarded
Close up of a close boarded / fully boarded section of a gate
Close Boarded
Open boarded or slatted gates are great if you live in a windy area, as they allow the wind to pass through the gates. Larger close boarded gates can be difficult, at times, to open into a strong wind; you run the risk of the wind dragging them out of your hands; with an open boarded gate, this can be greatly reduced.
Usually with a gate, the bracing and rails are exposed on the rear. Choose double boarded/double sided gates if you don't want to see the rails/bracing.
Not recommended however if you are intending to automate the gates.
standard bracing or double braced driveway gates
The rear of the gates has diagonal bracing, this should point down to the bottom rail and spreads the weight to the hinge side. In some instances or if you are automating the gates with an above ground system the you would double brace the gates so the bracing forms an 'X' on the rear of each gate. On shorter gates double bracing willappear as an upturned 'V'. If you require this or are using an above ground automation system please select double bracing.
add a full thickness bottom rail
As standard gates have bottom rail that can only be seen from rear, from the front it is covered by the cladding. Add a full thickness bottom rails means the bottom rail can be seen from both sides of the gates, bottom rail being 5 3/4" / 145mm tall with the cladding being jointed into the rail. Bottom rail is required if you intend to automate the gates with a below ground automation system.

Description

Our Trefnent driveway gates, pictured in A1 Accoya.

Top section of each gate is sub divided into multiple sections, this allows us then to fit the Gothic atyle arched panels into the gate.

As with all our gates, the boarding/cladding is jointed into the framework of the gates – this stops moisture from gaining access to the endgrain of the boards.

Gothic panels are also jointed into the framework of the gates to both stop moisture gaining access and to also allow shrinkage/expansion of the panels and to avoid the splitting that can otherwise occur.

The stiles of the Trefnent (vertical outer uprights of the gate frame) have rounded outer edges and rails feature angles tops to remove any moisture build up.
