Shildon Single Gate - 1m High
The Shildon is our most popular design; a contemporary favourite with attractive and safe sphere heads.
About the Shildon
The ball finials of the Shildon range give a subtle decorative finish. Sphere tops are our most popular design; a favourite amongst both domestic and commercial customers.
Quality that is hard to beat: Manufactured in Britain from mild steel - in higher-specification materials than those offered by other online stores - you can be confident knowing that your gate has been designed and made to last.
A sturdy 40mm wide x 8mm thick solid flat bar framework is paired with 12mm solid round infills, each topped with a 25mm diameter solid steel ball.
All Forjj single gates are 925mm [3’] high so that when they are set 75mm [3”] off the ground, they achieve a height of 1000mm [3' 3"] overall.
Our standard range consists of three width options with 20mm (1”) of tolerance to suit the most common UK garden footpath sizes. Our Gate Measuring Guide will help you make the right selection. Contact us for bespoke heights and widths outside of this range.
To order your gate you just need to know:
- What style you prefer
- The width you want to cover
- Whether your hinges need to be set on the right or the left (see our guide).
Before you order please use our Gate Measuring Guide to ensure your gate is going to fit. The most common issue is steeply rising ground in the swinging path of the gate. Please contact us if you are concerned that this (or anything else) could prevent the successful installation of your gate as we have solutions for most common concerns.
Brackets or Posts?
All Forjj gates come with the option of wall-fix (a strong, full height strap that you fix to your existing wall, timber or steel posts), and metal posts to dig and concrete in. You can select one or both posts depending on your individual requirements. All posts are sealed with a welded cap to prevent corrosion. This is longer lasting and more attractive than a plastic cap, and is one of the many ways we are set apart from our competition.

Every gate is supplied with a hot-dip galvanised pre-treatment as standard (learn why that is important here). You can paint your galvanised gate using appropriate paint or we can save you the hard work and factory finish (a process called polyester powder coating) in black. Read more about coatings and you can always contact us for additional colour options.
