Mortice and Tennon Single gates
Our Single Mortice and Tennon gates are all made to measure, and are available in a range of styles:
Flat top, Spindle top, or Paling. Each of these is available with an arched top.
These are perfect for entrance ways, and add style, and privacy to your property. With a strong and durable build, these gates are built to last.
The gates are made using a 100mm x 50mm framework, with the rear braces made of 100mm x 38mm kiln dried 5th Redwood. These are half morticed and fitted together using external glue and pins. The frame is then re-bated and a tongue and groove inlay is fitted. The tongue and groove matchboard is a nominal 125mm x 19mm (actual 120mm x 16mm) and again is kiln dried 5th Redwood.
The height of the gate is taken from the top of the styles.
The gates can be made to fit existing gaps, or to templates/drawings provided if required.
These gate are Handed, and therefore we need to know when ordering, which side the hinges will be fitted, the left or right, when looking at the good face of the gate. This helps to stop our gates dropping when hung, and reduces the need to adjust the gates after a long period.
We recommend the gates be treated before fitting, with a minimum of 2 coats, and again annually for their life. We would recommend a solvent or oil based external treatment.
All our gates are made using Timber, and therefore are subject to movement, i.e shrinking and swelling and slight twisting. This is a common factor with any timber gate, and due to our climate, they may require adjustment after fitting.
Custom styles can be manufactured within reason, but we do require a signature and full payment when ordering on all our gates.
Please give one of our sales staff a call on 0114 234 3924 to discuss your gate and we will be happy to help.
