Prowell’s Lighted Gate Columns mounted over 6″ steel posts. We show a minimal lighted area in this application. Local codes prevented the columns rising any higher than 78″, with the gate height itself at 72″. Because the gate must utilize the steel post within the column for it’s structural hinging, and the steel posts extend only to the lighted area, we are restricted to some extent on lowering the column height to match the driveway gate. A little confusing, and why every driveway gate with adjoining gate Columns is adapted to the specific application, with dimensioned drawings as a last line of defense.

The matching flanking panels are often employed to fill out a Driveway Gate rough opening.

For Driveway Gates without steel frames–at 12′ or less overall rough opening–we use our Joint #9, slightly modified with square shoulders.

The tenon itself buried 3-1/2″ into the horizontal rail, and carries through the vertical stile, where it accepts two quarter-sawn oak wedges, drive in to expand the tenon tightly against the squares shoulders of the mortise. This effectively locks the joint forever, regardless of the local humidity or temperature changes. A somewhat complicated procedure providing the results of an assembly that will never sag.
