   Why get a Frame?
Through years of automation experience we have heard one resounding gripe from our customers. The chain link, vinyl, wood or 3 rail farm gates found in local store and fencing suppliers are just not built for the rigors of automation. All Aluminium unit: 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. Frame caps are not included with the purchase.

You can use any size wood rails you choose (not included) up to 10' to create a traditional farm-style entrance to your home.


Automation is a breeze with the highly recommended E-S1600*, the most popular gate opener we carry. It attaches with a simple bolt on application that any handy homeowner can easily do them. Has a durable housing, powerful motor, dual adjustable limits and constant duty operation (Estate Swing makes the ONLY constant duty DIY opener). Rated for 16' or 800 lbs. Features: Positive stop free operation, metal housing, medium/heavy usage, key manual release, and online video.


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

Hinge Plates:

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

Use this gate kit by attaching 3 wooden rails (wood rails not included - typically 1 x 6 fence panels)It attaches on one side to allow a multitude of wood thicknesses and styles. A cable cross bracing and ball bearing hinges are included in this kit to make attaching the gate to a post (post not included, the post can be purchased with the hinges welded on to the post) a breeze. recommends that you use a self-etching primer (such as Marhide self-etching primer ). A self-etching primer is an essential undercoat layer of paint over steel. 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 aluminium and steel is primed prior to painting.
