Unfortunately, Grange gates are not made to measure. Most single gates come in the conventional three foot width, and are not available in smaller widths. The only way to get a smaller gate would be to manually remove the back frame, and cut down to size at your discretion through yourself or a trades person. However, this may void the 12 month warranty which is on all Grange wooden gates.

Can I Hang My Garden Gates from Any Side?
Not necessarily, but this depends on the specific gate. The framing on the back gate (to keep what is quite often vertical slats together) can affect how the gate is hung.
A gate with an outside frame or symmetrical back, such as the Grange Elite Chevron Gate 1.8m, can be hung from either side of the side you wish to hang it from.
However, gates such as the Grange Arched Featheredged Gate are designed to be hung one way due to the 'Z' frame at the back. In this instance, the gate would be hung from the right hand size. If in any doubt of what side your particular gate should hang from, don't hesitate to contact us.
If you do not have an appropriate frame to hang your gate from, then a wooden post is the logical and practical solution. The size of the post depends on the height of the gate. Ideally, you want the post to be around 2 foot higher than the height of the gate, and for this excess 2 foot to be dug into the ground and concrete in.
For a post that would feel the strain of regular opening and closing, this provides the most secure fixing method. Burbage have a collection of metal and wooden posts with many different tops (flat, ball top, pyramid top) to suit your style. Take a browse through our posts today.
