ll Gates in the Galleries #1-#1C are available as Double Gates

All of our double gates are born from the single gate styles. Simply double the cost of a single gate.
There are a few single gates that suggest minor design revisions as double gates.

Moreover, all single gates styles are available as Driveway Gates



All double gates require a cane bolt and a bronze stop.

The preferred cane bolt is #80-100 from Coastal Bronze. This has plastic bushings within the sleeve of the mounts, eliminating the sort of rattling i=outside your bedroom window in the m iddle of the night that will, over time, drive you to the looney bin, They come in three lengths. The common length is 20". But . . . the longer the cane bolt, the better leverage, and consequently less wobble or shake as the operable gate latches into the fixed gate.

The Bronze Stop #50-250 is another Coastal Bronze product and is required as a fixed stop for the operable gate to close into the fixed gate. Without this and the latch bar itself serves this role. But the latches are expensive and after a few hundred potential slams, the latch is vulnerable to breakage. The operable gate should strike the Bronze Stop just prior to the latch bar engaging the strikeplate.

To Bronze Stop #50-250


Double Gates have the same 1/4" hinge clearance as single gates.
The center gap is 1/2" instead of the single gate clearance of 3/8".
