  •    Product Description Top of Page has created an easy DIY multi-sized arched vinyl/wood slat gate frame kit. Use the Gate Crafters Arched Vinyl/Wood Dual Gate Frame Kit to build a vinyl or wood single gate to replace an existing gate, make your gate easy to automate or match a desired look.

       Why get a Frame? Top of Page
    Through years of automation experience we have heard one resounding gripe from our customers. The chain link, vinyl, wood or 3 rail gates found in local store and fencing suppliers are just not built for the rigors of automation. All of our gates are custom built to the exact customer's specifications (height and width), welded on all joints and are built with 6061-T6 aluminum: known for its strength and resilience. PLUS our gates all come with the necessary component of automation including horizontal supports matched to the mounting need of all common gate openers and ball bearing hinges, made to make your gate swing smoothly and freely through years of usage.

    Use this gate frame kit by attaching the vinyl or wood slats (vinyl/wood slats not included) to the arched aluminum frame and aluminum intermediate frame stiffener, and for vinyl/wood gates longer than 8' will include a 1/4" x 3/4" flat bar diagonal bracing welded on to the framing for extra stability. This kit includes ball bearing hinges to attach the gate to your post (post not included) for your convenience.


    Automation is a breeze with the highly recommended Estate Swing line of gate automation. There are solar options in the E-S 1000H and E-S allegiant and non-solar 24VDC options in the E-S 500 and E-S 1600. In addition there are specialty operators such as the E-S 1100 for smaller gates and little clearance room for mounting. And the E-SC 1600 for column mounting. Our staff is more than happy to assist you in picking out the correct gate opener for your particular installation.

    Non-automated Gate Hardware:

    If you are not planning on automating your gate or automating it in the future but not immediately we have some great accessories for consideration. Available are inside/outside key locked handle latches, key locked drop rods, and alternate self closing hinges so you can push your gate open and it will remain open while past 90 degrees. Once the gate is nudged toward the closed position the hinges will take it the rest of the way. Another direction to go if automating in the future is the electric pedestrian gate lock kit. This can be set up to release the lock via keypad, intercom, push button or any other device. Once the lock is released the gate can be pushed open. What is great about this scenario is all the products from the pedestrian gate lock kit can be used in conjunction with the gate opener in the future.


    The post has the hinge barrels welded to it. The gate kit comes with hinge barrels and hinges.

    Hinge Plates:

    The hinge plates have the barrels already welded to a plate for easy mounting to an existing post or column.

    Every gate is shipped with a can of self etching primer as a base coat for the frame and then can be painted any color needed. uses Marhide self-etching primer by Bondo. A self-etching primer is an essential undercoat layer of paint over aluminum. Primer kills stains, retards moisture and provides a good surface for a topcoat of paint to adhere to. It is imperative that new or bare metal and aluminum is primed prior to painting. Bondo is the producer of the top bare aluminum primers on the market. If you would like powder coating, choose between three colors - black, white or yellow - prior to shipping at an additional cost.
