How To Use The 3D Oak Garden Arch Designer
The Garden Arch Controls are split between the two different types of Arch we Offer, the 4 Post and the 2 Post. As you make your selections the 3D Model will change to give you a representation of what your Garden Arch will look like.
Below you can find out what each control does and which Arch(es) it allows you to change.
The type control lets you switch between the two different Arch options we supply in the 4 Post and the 2 Post.
The Size control is available on both Garden Arch types. For the Four post you can control the width, length and height whereas for the 2 post you only get the option to change the width and height.
The width sets the part of the arch you can walk through whereas the length (where applicable) sets the side that the trellising fits to.
The braces control allows you to choose how many braces you want. Choices vary.
The Trellis control is only available on the 4 Post Arch. This allows you to choose whether or not you want trellising with your garden arch. The trellis is made up of loose 50 x 50mm European Oak which will need to be cut to size on site and stainless steel screwed into position.
The Footings control is only available on the 4 post arch and allows you to choose Normal Posts, Staddle Stones or Into Ground (posts go 600mm into ground).
The two post arch is only available with posts Into the Ground.
The Thickness control allows you to choose the section size of your posts and headplates and you get the choices of 120mm, 150mm, 175mm and 200mm.
The profile control determines which ends the crossmembers and headplates are profiled to. With choices of either square, chamfered, rounded and ornate.
The Crossmembers control is only available on the 4 post arches and sets the number of crossmembers you have on your arch. There is also a secondary control which tells you our recommended number of crossmembers for the size your arch.
The overhang lets you set the size of the overhang on crossmembers and headplates (The overhang is set to the same size on both sides).
