    Quick one. I have made a gate frame which is 1600 H by 1050 W. There is vertical boards on top of frame and they sit at its highest point 200mm above frame (its an arc shape on top). With the extra bit below the frame its prob max 1900 H. I have a central span in the frame.

    Do I need to install 3 band and gudgeon hinges or 2? And will 450mm B+G hinges Long be sufficient?

    Sketchup below for reference;

    I would go for 2 600mm ones. Just made a similar width but taller gate myself last week and that's what I used.

    Thanks. I just went for 450 in the end. Just got the gates built and up today. Well happy.

    Cheers
