Project Profile: Contemporary Pool Enclosure with Custom Gates and Fence

Contemporary Custom Gate with cane bolt and dummy handlesRussell Fong designed and constructed this outdoor pool patio area. The double gate opens up to the courtyard. The double gate design riffs off the home’s entry door.

Double Gate Latch | Alta Modern Lever Gate Latch on Double Gate with Dummy Handle on Inactive side
Interior view of the double gate. The left side has an extra dummy handle that allows for pulling/pushing the inactive door, when needed.

The client chose the stainless steel Alta Contemporary Latch, as well as dummy handles for the inactive gate. Hinges were Heavy Duty Ball-Bearing Stainless Hinges that support quite a bit of
weight.

Double Gate with Brushed Stainless Steel Cane Bolt Drop Bolt
A brushed stainless contemporary cane bolt, 24” long. The length of the cane bolt doesn’t really matter, but it makes it easier to disengage if it’s longer since you don’t have to bend over as far.

Because it is a double gate, the fixed gate requires a cane bolt. The cane bolt holds the fixed gate in place and provide stability for the latching gate to latch onto. The bolt can be used also as a hold-open for when the gates are open. The client chose the 24” cane bolt so that they wouldn’t need to bend over too far to open it.

The area also has a storage area locked by a modern stainless steel slide bolt.

The pool dressing area has a door that mimics the gate (which also coordinates with the home’s entry door). The client used the Alta Latch with this door, as well. This is the view from the interior.
