XPRESS Fence – Gate Install

Pedestrian Gate Assembly Guide

STEP ONE - HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT OF GATE FRAME

Using an aluminium saw, cut the gate side frames with slotted spacer infills and outer infills to the required height. Gates are pre-made at 1797mm high but can be adjusted as required. NOTE: Side frame heights are governed by the slotted spacer.

STEP TWO - WIDTH ADJUSTMENT OF SLATS

Gates are pre-made at 1000mm wide “Overall Gate Width” (outer edge of gate frame to outer edge of gate frame). If a narrower width is required, refer to below:
Using an aluminium saw, cut all slats and gate slats to suit the required overall gate width. If height of gate is reduced, count how many slat spaces are required to fit that height. Note that you must always use 4x gate slats to make a gate.

STEP THREE

On a flat protected surface, lay 1x gate side frame with slotted spacer infill rest against a stop and tap slats into place.

GATE SLAT POSITIONING:

  • 2x at top of the gate
  • 1x at the middle of gate
  • 1x at bottom of gate (see exploded view on next page)

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Even if gate height is reduced, always ensure 4x gate slats are used.

STEP FOUR

Engage the second gate side frame to the slats and the top frame until all the slats are fully engaged. TIP: Start at one end and work slats in from one end to the other.

STEP FIVE

Check measure diagonals to ensure the gate is square.

STEP SIX

Screw all gate slats (4 screws per slat).

STEP SEVEN

Snap the 2x outer infills into position to hide screw heads.

STEP EIGHT

Insert top caps into side frames.
