A heavier duty version of our gate system for our Freestanding Fencing. Heavy-duty gates use both hinge and latch posts in the same way the freestanding system uses posts. It features a stabilizing header and heavy-duty hinges/latch. The tubing is made from 1 3/8 powder-coated metal posts. 83% thicker tubing than the light-duty gate, the heavy-duty frame gate is designed for more regular use. Designed to be much more durable over time.
The heavy-duty frame gate kit relies on the use of one of the post assemblies from your freestanding system installation for either the latch or hinge side of the gate. The main image above shows this assembly in gray. So this gate kit comes with one additional post to complete the gate, not two. This gate must be installed with one of your freestanding system posts serving as one of the sides. If this does not work for your gate location, you will need to contact us to add an additional post assembly to your order.
The height of our heavy-duty gate is approximately 72". This is designed to be used with our Freestanding Fencing System at is the maximum standard finished height of 7 feet tall. If your finished height is planned to be less than 7 feet, then the heavy-duty gate may need to have its height adjusted by trimming the vertical tubing components on-site during installation.
An additional post is included with the Heavy Duty gate but not an additional spring-loaded arm since it is not required.
Socket Sizes Useful for Assembly:
*** One of the gates pictured features spring-loaded arms mounted on either side. This is not mandatory and most installations will not require this unless the gate rests on a corner or where the fence changes directions***
The gate was a great addition to our Purrfect Fence. It allows easy access to the backyard while maintaining the integrity of the fence structure. It was easy to install with two people doing it. The crafty cats don’t even try to escape when going though it nor do they try to rattle it or Jimmy it open when it’s closed. The don’t even pay attention to it.
We love the heavy duty gate! It looks great and very well made! Directions on assembly were very clear and helpful. We're really glad we also ordered the extra tools like the hog ringer and the tie spreader/cutter tool. They helped a lot!
This gate is awesome, it is tall, so you don't have to worry about head clearance. The bottom of it swings with the rest, so there also isn't anything to step over. We put it in the same spot as another Iron gate, so we doubled up in that regard. We love our fence!!!
I needed a gate that Was tall enough to walk thru and strong enough to be used daily. This gate is perfect. Well designed and easy to install. I have used purrfectfence cat enclosures for almost 20 yrs and have never been disappointed .
I have three cats and they love it!! It was not complicated to put up, but I did ask a lot of clarifying questions and the purrfect fence representative answered all of them.
Two of my nephews helped me to put it up. I do recommend purchasing the tools as they were very helpful!
My cats LOVE going outside and I love being able to give them this experience. Thank you for this product!
This gate was really easy to install and it looks very good. It is sturdy. It took a little time to figure out how to get the hinges set just exactly right so the gate was square but now it works great.
