While the FE26 Steel Prefabricated Gate can cover a 34-1/2 inch wide opening, broader opening sizes require the FE26 Steel Gate Panel. With this complete, pre-welded Gate Panel and the FE26 Gate Uprights (sold separately), you can create a custom gate up to 48 in wide to perfectly protect your space.

After determining the length of the panel needed, simply add 1-3/8 inch to each end of the rails to allow the Gate Uprights to be secured on tightly. Then use a rubber mallet to drive the Gate Uprights into the top and bottom rails. Lastly, install a self-drilling screw into each corner to ensure a strong connection.

These panels are made from 100% pre-galvanized steel and are available in coordinating Fortress finishes: Gloss Black, pitted Antique Bronze, and textured Black Sand. Choose from 34 inches tall or 40 inches tall.

FE26 Gate Uprights and Hinges & Latch are sold separately.
