A robust, metal farm gate is important for controlling livestock and for the security of agricultural property in general; rural theft is a serious concern. As well as providing security and protection, farm field gates have to put up with a great deal in terms of weather and temperature changes and being knocked by vehicles or larger animals such as bulls, so a good quality, well-made gate is essential.
The 7-Rail Galvanised Farm Gate from First Fence is a classic style that is easily recognisable; if you have seen a gate across a field entrance it will more than likely be this style. It comes in a standard height of 1145mm and is available in the following widths: 3ft, 4ft, 5ft, 6ft, 7ft, 8ft, 9ft, 10ft, 11ft, 12ft, 13ft, 14ft, 15ft and 16ft. The width of the gate opening is something that needs to be properly considered as the gateway will need to accommodate vehicles, machinery, animals and people working or living on the farm, with the huge range available from First Fence you can be assured that we have what you need.
This farm gate has a very traditional design, the construction of the rails and box bracing make it structurally very sound and able to withstand the force exerted on it by large farm animals or knocks from heavy farm vehicles. Made from galvanised steel it is highly resistant to rust or corrosion which will ensure the gate has a long, useful life. When it comes to durability and reliability a galvanised steel farm gate is a popular choice among farmers.
This metal gate leaf measures 1145mm mm in height and is 3ft wide (915mm). The top and bottom bars measure 45mm Ø x 1.5m wall thickness, and the five infill bars, or intermediate bars, measure 32mm Ø x 1.2mm wall thickness. Each gate comes with a spring-loaded Bolt Kit (including spring, cotter pin, washer and bolt) and two M20 x 150mm adjustable eye bolts with two hex nuts. Each gate leaf has two boss holes close together at the top, this is for adjustment or if you have different hook spaces when hanging your leaf.
The 7-Rail Galvanised Farm Gate is a dig in format superbly suited to rural environments with softer ground substance. To securely fasten the gate into the ground you will need post mix which is available from First Fence.
Although galvanised steel is a very hard-wearing material, it is recommended that the metal gate leaf is cleaned periodically to remove any dirt and debris with a stiff brush or water, and this will help to prevent the build up of corrosive substances. Also check the gate regularly for any signs of rust or damage that may have occurred. Take action to repair or touch up the coating to prevent corrosion and identify and repair or replace any damaged or faulty parts.
