Elite LifeGard Aluminum Gate 48H x 42W

This Elite LifeGard aluminum gate is 48 inches tall by 42 inches wide. This gate is made to fit a 42 inch opening between gate posts. LifeGard gates have a flat top rail to match 48 inch tall LifeGard aluminum fence panels. The vertical pickets slot down through pre-punched holes in the middle of the horizontal rails. LifeGard gates come with a welded frame and include a pool code latch. Elite gates are made in the USA and powder coated for a maintenance free, rust proof finish. The finish is between shiny and matte. This Elite LifeGard gate comes with self closing hinges and a pool safety latch. Elite standard fence panels and gates have visible screws on one side of the horizontal rails.

LifeGard Arched and Double Gates

Arched gates are not an option for Elite LifeGard gates at 42 inches wide. Per Elite, the arch amount is too small. You can create double gates by ordering two of the same gate, and making a note during checkout which gates are double gates. Continuous Arched gates are available for 42 inch wide Elte gates. Continuous arched gates are used to create a single arch over the span of a double gate. Purchase a drop rod to keep one of your double gates closed. Pull out the drop rod when you want to open both gates.

Installing a 48H x 42W LifeGard Gate

Elite 42 inch wide gates are made to fit a 42 inch opening between gate posts. Actual gate size is 40.5 inches which allows 1.5 inches for the self closing hinges and latch to be installed. Install the hinges with the provided powder coated stainless steel self tapping screws. If you are hanging this gate between columns that are wider than 2 inches, you will have to install the hinges on the corner of the column. To hang the gate in the middle of a column, you will need to build a shim that will allow the hinges to be attached so the gate swings open. If possible, it is recommend to use blank gate posts when installing between columns. FenceTown help articles and Elite installation guides provide more information on installing gates.
