Which hand gate do you need?

Some gates are hung from the left or right hand. This is because they are built to be self supporting and stronger on one side of the gate.

The hand of a gate is determined by the positions of the gate hinges when viewing a property from the outside. The hanging stile will be larger on the side that the hinges are positioned.

If a pair of gates is required one will be a left hand gate and one will be a right hand gate. You will need to decide which way around you want the gates to be when opening them.

It is worth noting that gates should not open out onto a public pavement/highway reference; the Highways Act 1980.
