FLOOR LEVEL – To establish the ‘floor level’ measurement, measure the estimated floor space, taking into account any skirting boards. It’s important to measure within the skirting boards as this may alter the gate we recommend for you. Key in this measurement in centimeters in the ‘floor level’ box. If there is no difference between the floor level and the wall to wall measurement there is no need to fill in both.
