Specrail Essex Aluminum Gate 42H x 42W

This Specrail Essex aluminum gate is 42 inches tall by 42 inches wide and made to fit a 42 inch opening between gate posts. Essex gates have a smooth flat top rail with alternating pressed spears between the top two rails to match 42 inch tall Essex aluminum fence panels. The alternating pressed spears provide a more decorative look to this gate. Specrail gates have a welded frame for strength and durability and welded corner gussets which strengthen the gate and keep it from sagging over time. The gate pickets slot down through pre-punched holes in the middle of the horizontal rails. Specrail gates are powder coated for a maintenance free, rust proof finish. The finish is between shiny and matte. There is an option for a pet panel to be welded onto the gate before powder coating. This pet panel is a great way to keep your pets safe, while keeping other animals out.

Decorative finials are an option instead of the standard pressed spear tops. You would need 4 decorative finials to replace the pressed spear tops on this gate. Specrail will cut the pressed spears off and install the finials on the gate.

A latch is not included with this gate, purchase a Specrail latch to complete your gate.

Essex Arched and Double Gates

Arched gates are an option for Specrail Essex gates and are made up to 42” 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. Drop rods are included with Specrail double gate orders and are used to keep one gate closed. Pull out the drop rod when you want to open both gates.

Installing a 42H x 42W Essex Gate

Specrail 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 Specrail installation guides provide more information on installing gates.
