The Sunburst Arch ADDS HEIGHT to your gate. Let’s say you choose a 48 inch high gate and then add the sunburst arch. The outside of your gate will be 48 inches high and you will gain height as you move towards the center of the gate. Arch height varies based upon the width of the gate. It’s not exact for every gate because all of our gates our first built by hand, then welded, then powder coated. However, the wider the gate, the higher the arch. For example, a walk gate with arch may have a rise of approximately 3 – 8 inches depending on the width of the gate whereas a driveway gate with arch may have a rise of 10 – 14 inches or more… again, depending on the width of the gate.
