Onguard Heron Aluminum Gate 48H x 72W

This Onguard Heron aluminum gate is made to fit a 73.5 inch opening between posts. Heron gates have a flat top rail to match the 48 inch tall Heron aluminum fence panels and has a welded frame for strength and durability. The aluminum pickets slot down through pre-cut holes in the middle of the horizontal rails. Onguard gates are powder coated for a maintenance free, rust proof finish. The finish is between shiny and matte.

Aluminum Pool Fence Gates

Due to the crossbar this Heron gate at 72 inches wide will not make most pool codes. The cross bar is welded on to keep the gate from sagging over time and can not be removed. Most pool codes require 45 inches between the two innermost horizontal rails so a child can’t get a foothold and pull themselves over. Heron 48 inch tall gates at 36 inches and 48 inches wide should make most pool codes. Check your local building codes for the requirements to make pool code in your area. This gate can be made with a U frame so it will make pool code.

Heron Arched and Double Gates

Arched gates are an option for Onguard Heron. Arched Gates are made up to 72” wide. 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 used to create a single arch over the span of a double gate. Purchase a drop rod to keep one gate closed, and pull out the drop rod when you want to open both gates.

Installing a 48H x 72W Heron Gate

Onguard gates are true to size, so you will need to add 1.5 inches per gate leaf for the hinges and latch between gate posts. Install the hinges and latch 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. Our help articles and Onguard installation guides provide more information on installing gates.
