Calculating Gate width between existing Pillars or Posts:

Take three measurements, top, middle and bottom (as below).

Take the shortest of the three measurements and reduce by 150mm (or 6"). This allows for the hinge (inc pins) and opening gap. The final figure will be the actual width of gate required.

For example: Top: 3m 455mm | Middle: 3m 450mm | Bottom: 3m 445mm - shortest measurement would be 3m 445mm - reduce by 150mm = Actual Gate Width of: 3m 295mm
