  4. When installing your aluminum gates, do you need to use posts, or can they be directly mounted to a block wall.

It depends…

  1. Single Swing Walk Gates. Yes, you will need 2 gate posts because of the way our Standard Gate Hinges and Tru-Close Hinges work.
  2. Large Single Swing Driveway Gates. If the gate is over 8 feet wide, then you must use our Heavy Duty Gate Hinges which can be mounted directly to your own structure (house, building, wall, column). However, all of our gate locks are made up of 2 pieces which connect when the gate is shut, so you will still need a latching post.
  3. Double Swing Gates. Optional IF you’re using our Heavy Duty Gate Hinges which can be mounted directly to your own structure. The other hinges would require a post.
