All 287ag gates are made from 1.66 (1 5/8) pipe. The frames are constructed from LT Sch 10 and the rails are 14 ga. Using heavier pipe in the frame makes the gate stronger, while using 14 ga. for the rails helps keep the weight down. All our gates come with 3″ of 4″ x 3/8″ flat already welded to the hinges as well as chain and latches attached.
All of our gates are built to fit an opening that corresponds with the size of the gate. For instance, a 12′ gate fits a 12′ opening. On a 12′ gate the frame of the gate is 11’8″, you have 3″ of hinge strap already attached and that will leave you a 1″ gap on your closure side. Each size of gate we sell follows this same measurement rule.
