The offset hinge design enable a two way opening option for pedestrian and bridle gates. The kit is suitable for 175 x 175mm posts although it can be used on 150 x 150mm posts but will need packing out.
Supplied as a complete with top ’superhook’ and hinge strap and lower double half pin hinge assembly with all fixings to attach the hinge system to the gate.
Our specialised fittings are designed to allow timber gates to be opened easily from both side and to self close. We also supply traditional fittings but we think they limit access to rights of way.
Self closing gates are generally desirable on rights of way and we recommend offset hinges. They are virtually maintenance free and the gate closes every time. When gates are correctly installed using our fittings they will close even from 2” away. We have tested other traditional methods using weights and springs but think they are unsatisfactory. Springs usually fail after a short time in use and weights can pose a potential safety hazard to RoW users.
