When you need to effectively manage livestock and keep secure any valuable machinery and vehicles then good quality metal farm gates are a must. They have to put up with a great deal, from all kinds of weather and temperature conditions to being hit with heavy duty vehicles or even by larger animals when they are moving from one area to another. In this situation, it is preferable to select a metal gate over a timber one, they are much more sturdy, rust-resistant and will survive being chewed by animals.
This gate design is very recognisable and it is used extensively in farming and other rural environments, however it is equally relevant in other situations that require a heavy metal gate. The 7 rails are welded to a box section at each end of the gate leaf making it a very compact and substantial product. The galvanised steel ensures that it remains rust-free and with correct installation and maintenance it should give many years of service.
The 8ft 7-rail Galvanised Farm Gate from First Fence is fabricated from galvanised steel which provides a rust and corrosion resistance which is crucial in a product that is permanently sited outdoors. This zinc covering gives the gate a protective layer and makes it durable and strong and ensures a long and productive lifespan. The traditional design, characterised by by its well-constructed rails and box bracing, gives a structural integrity that is capable of sustaining the forces that may be exerted on it by large farm animals or impacts from heavy farm vehicles.
The metal agricultural gate leaf is 1145mm high width a width of 8 feet [2440mm]. The top and bottom bars measure 45mm x 1.5m, and the five infill bars, or intermediate bars, measure 32mm x 1.2mm. 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 sturdy, steel farm gate leaf is made for easy installation whether this is on an existing post or wall or on brand new gate posts.
