How do I measure for gates?

With all gates, make sure that you get more than one measurement.  Following a level plane, you will want to measure both at the top and bottom of the gate.  Do not allow your tape to slope or angle from level while measuring.  Keep your dimensions accurate to + 1/8”.  You will often times find these dimensions are different.  Generally, the smaller dimension is used in building the gate.  Communicate this information clearly on your as-built shortly after setting the posts.

Rolling gates: Measure from inside to inside of gate posts and from inside to inside of the adjoining line posts that will support the gate when in the full open position.  The inside to inside of line post should not exceed 8’

Cantilever gatesMeasure from inside to inside of the latch posts to the first gate / roller post.  This would be the gate post closest to the opening.  Then, measure from outside to outside of gate / roller gate posts.  See illustration.
