Materials Are The Foundation Of A Quality Gate.
We use only the highest quality steel to construct our gates. We use 1″x2″ rectangular tubing or 2″ square tubing both with a thick 1/8″ wall thickness as the end bars, 1″x2″ by 1/8″ thick channels for the horizontals and 3/4″ square tubing with a 1/8″ wall for the vertical pickets. We generally use 6″ square tubing 3/16″ thick posts. Many of our gate styles employ hand forged scrolls and ornamentation. We use only solid material for these applications. If the style warrants, we use solid precision cut 1/2″ sheet material to make business logos, initials, numbers, scrolls or just about anything you can imagine.
Measure twice, cut once.
It is critical to have a properly sized gate for your application. The base-styles shown in our Drive Gate Pricing Catalog are shown as 5 feet tall by 14 feet wide. We embrace the uniqueness of every project. Since we are the manufacturer, we can custom taylor your gates size and proportions to your application. We will field measure the future site of your gate after your driveway is installed. If you are installing masonry columns along your driveway, we will supply you with gate liner posts to be installed before the columns are installed. The masonry is then applied over the liner post and the gate hinge system will extend out past. Once the liner posts are installed, we will then field measure to ensure a proper fit.
We are the manufacturer! We do not pre-make our gates and warehouse them awaiting order. As stated above, our gates are made to fit your specific needs. This ensures proper proportion and fit into your site. We provide you with an array of base-styles that can be customized to no end. We do not only customize the physical size of our gates, we also customize the style of our gates. You will have the ability to design your gate to pick up on styling cues from your location. You can match existing ironwork or make your gate really stand out. Hand worked scrolls, precision cut logos and fine details are just some of the items that can be customized on your gate. If you would like more or less substantial materials, we can do that too. Customization options are endless.
A premium powder coated finish is highly recommended. We bake on our polyester powder coat only after the gate is fabricated an prepared properly. After fabrication, all welds are sanded smooth to form a seamless structure. From there, the gate is cleaned by sandblasting to remove any contaminants on the material. A polyester powder coat is applied and baked on for an incredible finish.
