10 foot wide wood privacy gate?

I have an existing 10 foot wide gate that is rotted out. Just the gate portion is rotting. The posts which are connected to 2 other brick fences are fine. So I need to take the old hinges off and replace both sides of the swinging gate.

Are there any websited or specific styles of gates that you would suggest. Basically how should i construct the gates to make them strong?

Do you have one 10' wide gate, or two 5' wide gates filling a 10' wide opening?

I would get metal frames for the gates and go from there. Both HD and Lowes sell metal frames that are adjustable for width, within a range. get two that can expand to something 60". If they don't come with hinge and latch hardware, you can buy that seperately in whatever style works best.

Pardon my unfamiliarity with these metal frames, but is it understod that 1*6*6 dog ear slats are fastened to them to give the appearance of an all-wood gate?
