This Somerset gate comes with a tapered and chamfered top bar with superior hanging stile joined using traditional hardwood stop dowelled mortice & tenon joints. Made in Britain, The Somerset 5 Bar gate is manufactured using sustainable slow grown softwood. Slow grown softwood is more dense and as a result produces a better quality wood. Being made from specially selected timber makes for a more stable quality gate, and therefore, a more durable gate. The Somerset 5 Bar gate also has a planed finish and stainless steel fittings.

When fitting this gate we recommend a 24" Gate kit (Note a 19mm drill bit is required to attach the kit to the gate and the post). This kit comes with the attachments for hanging the gate included. Another option is bolt on hinges top and bottom but this option doesn't allow the gate to be adjusted when hung. If choosing this option then two bolt on hinges and M12 coach bolts are required to attach the gate to the post. For latching the gate we recommend a field auto latch and an odd leg striker. M12 coach bolts are needed for the field auto latch. For posts we recommend 7'6" Long Dressed, Chamfered, Rounded Top Post of width at least 7" x 7". Another option is a more plain 7' 6" Treated Larch Square Post of width at least 7" x 7". Postcrete can also be ordered for securing the post in the ground.
