Product Help

1) Option 1: Choose your Width / Gap Size

If you choose one of our wooden gates, the width measurements stated are for the actual size of the gates.

If you choose one of our wrought iron style gates, the measurements stated are for the gap between your gate posts, not the actual gate size.

More help regarding width and gap sizes here.

2) Option 2: Add a Finish

 

Wrought Iron Style Gate Finish

All metal gates, railings and posts are supplied with a black primed finish as standard. The primed product must be painted with a good quality rust inhibiting top coat after fitting. In response to requests from our customers, we now offer a painted finish, which means you should not need to paint them. However Cannock Gates cannot guarantee the paint for preventing rust because we have no control over how the gates are looked after once they have left our premises. The end customer must inspect the gates after fitting and touch up any scratches, and then regularly inspect for damage that may lead to rusting.

Wooden Gate Finish

We provide a wood staining service for all our wood gates. If requested we can finish your wooden gates in Impranol wood stain. The wood stain we use is a solvent-based, open-porous with biocidal ingredients and is suitable for use on all types of wood and on wood used outdoors. Impranol wood stain protects your wooden gates from harmful rays and repels water. (Our wood stain finish has a 12 month guarantee).

We have two staining shades for you to choose from, Light Oak or Natural Pine. (The swatches below are for guidance purposes only. We find the swatches appear darker here than the shade they appear on the wood.)

3) Option 3: Do you Require Posts?

Steel Posts (supplied with a black primed finish as standard)

  1. Firstly decide which gate you would like
  2. Make a note of the height of the gate you have chosen
  3. Each wrought iron style gate listing has a recommended post section (A, B or C)
  4. Find the height of your gate under ‘description' on the left-hand side of the column. If you have selected a pair of gates with differing heights at the side and the centre please use the side height as the basis for choosing the correct post.
  5. Once you have found your gate height, you then need to decide whether your posts will need to be inserted below the ground (as shown in fig. 1) or fixed above the ground (if available) with a wall fixing post (as shown in fig. 2)
  6. Remember, if you are buying a pair of gates you will need two hanging posts. For a single gate you will need one hanging post and one latching post.

Solid Oak and Softwood Posts

Oak is an extremely robust timber that has been used in the construction industry for centuries. It is a timber that has a character all of its own and can be prone to splitting, although this does not impede its life whatsoever. Cannock Gates send you the best oak available from what is a very limited supply, however we assure you that what we do supply will last you a lifetime. Our softwood posts, pressure treated to ensure long life and durability, offer an excellent lower-cost alternative to the solid oak posts.

Wrought Iron Railings

1) Option 1: Choose your Width / Gap:

Intermediate and end posts for railings are available. Please telephone for details.

2) Option 2: Add a Finish

All metal gates, railings and posts are supplied with a black primed finish as standard. In response to requests from our customers, we now offer a painted finish, which means you don't need to paint them! Painted produces a long-lasting, hard-wearing finish that when properly maintained (your painted gates shouldn’t need another coat for up to 12-18 months), will not crack, chip or peel as with conventional paints. The colour won't fade, and you can paint over it if you want to highlight features of your gate e.g. with gold or silver paint.
