B6 Diamond Brace style automatic timber field gate design

Farm gates such as Diamond brace can be made with more than the usual four or five horizontal rails. Also the spacing or gaps between each rail can vary according to the height of the gate, the size of rails and number used.
Closer spacing between each rail can be useful as a barrier for keeping pets in, or to restrict view or limit debris from passing through.
Six, seven, eight or more rails are available with the Top rail normally more substantial than the intermediates. The bottom rail is often larger that the intermediate rails, but not always as large as the top one. This is to give the gate greater stability and become more suitable for powered operation.
As with all wooden gates, strap hinges that can be used as fixing points for the motors, are recommended so that the driving force from each operator, is distributed through the gate furniture and reduce the more direct affect of distortion upon exposed timber.
Baring hinges are used with power operated gates so that great use will have less ware upon the pivot and the geometry of the gate can remain as stable as it is able.
Field entrance gates are a common use for this style and they can be manufactured from alternative materials, including Metal, Hardwood, Softwood, Accoya or a combination of these and in different finishes or left natural.
