Gate Upright, Gate Frame

The side posts fabricated into both opposite sides of any single gate or both sides of each leaf for our double-swing drive thru, driveway and estate gates. Also known as the gate frame. This is different than a fence panel which has no frame; however, fence panels serve a different function and fence panels have configurability options (racking for slopes) not available in gates.  The Gate Frame provides additional strength and support to the gate.  Swing Gates use gate hinges which connect the gate frame to the gate post.  Gate Frames also are used for mounting gate locks.  On single gates, our 2-pieces locks are installed on the gate post and gate frame which allows the 2-pieces to connect and lock.  On double swing driveway gates, our 2-pice locks are mounted on each gate frame respectively.
