Measure Your Gate Opening

Measuring your gate opening is fast and simple. The only tools you will need are a tape measure and the Kee Gate Sizing Flyer:

To simplify the process, Kee Safety uses the Opening Dimension. This measurement determines how much space is in the opening. Whether it is the space between two posts, a wall and a post, or any other mounting situation, the Opening Dimension is the distance between the two structures.

Once you have measured your Opening Dimension, you can use the Kee Gate Sizing Flyer to determine what size gate you will need.

Let’s look at an example:

We are planning to protect an opening between two guardrail systems. The measurement from inside of post to inside of post is 37”. This means that we will select an SGNA036 style gate. Although the standard size of the SGNA036 covers a 36” opening, the width of the gate can be extended to cover a 37” opening. Each gate can be adjusted on site, using only a hex key, wider by 2” or narrower by 1.5”.

Measuring your gate opening only takes a moment and ensures that you order the correct size gate. If you require any assistance when measuring your gate opening feel free to give us a call at (855) 987-8779 or send an email to safetygates@keesafety.com.
