GARDEN GATE HARDWARE SPECIFICATIONS
 

 

 

wood gates
Illustrating a typical #80-100 bronze Cane Bolt and the #50-250 bronze gate stop.
The 50-250 is included with all double gates. The cane bolt is an added, but necessary accessory. The Coastal Cane Bolt, unlike all others, is equipped with plastic washers fitted within the sleeves so the bolt itself, when closed, doesn't rattle in the breeze outside your bedroom window all night long.

Prowell's preferred 4" bronze ball-bearing butt hinge.
Dark Bronze or Nickel.
Unlike removable pin hinges, ball-bearing hinges maintain their tight swing action forever.

For our cost at $68/pair ($90/3 singles), simply to help insure a lesser hinge isn't used, which in turn can become the weak link of the gate's functionality.

The Bronze Gate Stop #50-250 is mortised in flush to the edge of the
fixed double gate. It is NOT surface-mounted or you will lose your swing clearance.

(Shown with the RMH E414 latch).

Commonly, double gates will opt for a dummy, or inoperable latch on the fixed gate.

Lockey Mechanical Dead bolt #2210.
A marine-grade metal with a bronze patina.
Left-View upon entry
Right view: Property side

MECHANICAL:

Mechanical Locks are different in that they operate on a mechanical release that is not dependent on electricity or batteries or even a wireless system.
The Lockey Mechanical Dead Bolt is probably the most reliable solution to those seeking security without a keyed dead bolt. Because the bolt itself is 1" long, it also allows for the swelling and contraction of the gate. You simply enter your code and turn the knob to release the bolt. It is often accompanied with a dedicated gate latch for those instances when there is, say, a social gathering with people arriving in streams. To prevent the need for everyone to enter a code, the code is overridden and the gate swings open freely, which can result in a slamming gate if there is wind. So the latch comes into play to insure the gate can be closed and latched, but opened freely by each arriving guest.

The product retails for $108-140.
You can source this yourself and manage the boring prep, or you can have Prowell source it and bore for $280.00

*Note: Although the wood stops that come with the gates are designed to act as Stops and prevent the horizontal latch bar from serving this role, it is important to screw the
wood stops to the post or jambs in lieu of finish nails that will loosen over time and our Stop will then default to the latch bar, which will eventually break over repeated slamming.

Specifications:

  • Lockey Hydraulic Gate Closer TB175 fits most flush gate and frame arrangements
    where the gate weight is up to 125 lbs and width is no more than 54 inches. Both the
    travel and latching speeds are fully adjustable, ensuring gates close in a controlled manner.
    These closers are particularly suited to garden gates, picket gates, barrier gates and
    lightweight doors (NON FIRE RATED).

Specifications:
  • Lockey Hydraulic Gate Closer TB400, also known as a Pedestrian Gate Closer, does not slam gates shut. It firmly and quietly pushes gates closed, making it ideal for use with Lockey Locks, magnetic locks and other latching devices. The closing speed is pre-set to provide a controlled close of 8 seconds or more*, depending upon the weight of the gate and quality of hinges. With this closer there is no risk of maladjustment or tampering with the speed adjustment after it is fitted. (NON FIRE RATED)
  • Each gate closer includes instructions, mounting brackets and fitting bar. As with most gate closers, it is advisable to install a mechanical stop to restrict the gate opening angle** to avoid damage to the closer.
  • Easy to install. For Use With Gates Up To 175 LBS And 64" Wide.

  • In-line and offset Opening angle**
  • Maximum of 110 deg.

The Sure-Close dummy hinge 108SF S
(Code # 74001313)

  A few photo mock-ups showing a visual of the SureClose Hinge
  The wood lags that are supplied with the hinges are insufficient and designed for metal gates. Identical lags, but longer, are available on Amazon:
(Simpson Strong Tie Outdoor Accents Simpson SD10112DBBR50#10 x 1-1/2-inch Hex Head Black Powder-Coat Connector Screw (50-Pack), 1-1/2")
Most gates require only one SureClose Hydraulic closing hinge, shown on the bottom. The upper hinge is identical, but non-hydraulic.

  The cylindrical end of both hinges adjusts the gap between the gate and post. A huge convenience to the installer, who can assume an even gap along the swing/latch edge by simply rotating the adjustment hinge cylinder
