As a rule, commentators of Ezekiel's prophecy paint very high gates.

He made the side pillars sixty cubits high; the gate extended round about to the side pillar of the courtyard.
From the front of the entrance gate to the front of the inner porch of the gate was fifty cubits.

(Ez. 40:14-15)

Ezekiel almost always indicates only horizontal dimensions. Obviously, showing us only horizontal dimensions, the Lord God hopes for our common sense. In the fourteenth verse of Ezekiel in the original Hebrew there is no word "high". From the original in Hebrew you can translate something like this:

And he made (measurements) columns - sixty cubits, Also for the columns of the courtyard at the gate - around, around.

Since in the next verse the prophecy speaks of a horizontal dimension of 50 cubits, — we have no reason to try to measure out 60 cubits in height. 60 cubits of height for the pillar, the width of which is only 2 cubits — this is too disproportionate. And for the whole room measuring 50 by 25 cubits, the height of the canopy of 60 cubits would be a great inconvenience in the rain.
