To calculate, multiply gate width x gate height* x ______ lbs.

Add 1.25 lbs. per lineal foot if gate has a U-Frame.

NOTE: Optional items like rings, puppy pickets, finials…etc. would add more weight to the above estimates.

Calculating Arched Gates:

*For Single Gates and Double Driveway Gates + Sunburst Arch: Add 1 additional foot to the gate height calculation. For example, a Commercial 16′ wide x 5 foot high driveway gate with the sunburst arch added will calculate as: 16 x 6 x 2.5. NOTE: Sunburst arch height varies based upon the width of the gate and is not necessarily 1 foot in height.

*For Estate Gates: use the higher number (the second number) of your gate height. For, example, for an Industrial gate 12 feet wide x 6-to-7 feet high will calculate as 12 x 7 x 3.
