Gates have a welded frame for strength and some brands have crossbars or gussets to keep the gate from sagging. All FenceTown gates come with self-closing spring loaded hinges which make most local pool codes. Gates include a gravity latch, handle latch, or magnetic latch, depending on the brand and style of gate. Specrail gates do not come with a latch. To make most pool codes, you will want to purchase a magnetic pool latch which keeps small children from opening the gate. Gate posts have thicker walls than standard posts, and should be used for all gates, to hold the weight of a gate and the opening and closing of a gate. Gates usually ship in their own box with foam padding. Let us help you determine the correct items for your fence project by sending us a basic line drawing like the example on our Free Quote page.

Shipping Aluminum Gates
Aluminum gates ship in their own boxes and some brands include the gate hardware in the same box. Gates ship along with fence panel orders and are shrink wrapped on a pallet. Most gates generally ship via truck freight which costs more than standard ground shipping. Gates are the most important item to check for damage when your fence order arrives. If your gates are damaged during shipping, note the damage on the truck drivers paperwork, and refuse the gate so it’s on the way back to the manufacturer. Call or email us and we will get a replacement in production immediately.
NOTE: Due to freight costs, purchasing and shipping a single gate without aluminum fence can be costly. The shipping cost to ship a single gate is usually the same if not more than the gate cost. If you just need a single gate, it would be more cost effective for you to purchase the gate locally.
