Iron Driveway Gates

Wrought iron drive gates offer classic elegance to your home’s exterior. Adding a gate can help your property stand out, and along with aesthetic appeal, drive gates also offer stronger security and peace of mind.

Construction Ensures Longevity

Every gate we build at Fortin Ironworks comes with the high quality, and strong value we ensure to include in all our products. The complete line of drive gates we offer are constructed with the finest materials and skilled craftsmanship, but can fit any budget. Construction is the key to a long lasting gate, and our gates are designed to maintain structural integrity over time. All components are welded to the gate frame to ensure a long lifespan, rather than using fasteners that loosen over time causing a gate to feel flimsy and operate poorly. Diagonal cross braces are strategically placed to add extra strength and ensure a rigid gate that will not sag. Each gate uses an adjustable hanging system that allows the gate to be readjusted over time, extending its life far beyond what you would normally expect. Drive gates from Fortin Ironworks give you confidence that you are making an investment that is going to last.

Materials are the Foundation of a Quality Gate

We only use the highest quality steel at Fortin Ironworks. End bars are made with either 1” x 2” rectangular tubing or 2” square tubing, each with a sturdy ⅛” wall thickness. Horizontal pieces are made with 1” x 2” channels, again ⅛” thick, and vertical pickets are made with ¾” square tubing with those same, sturdy ⅛” thick walls. The posts for our gates stand strong as well, made with 6” square tubing that stays rigid thanks to its 3/16” wall thickness. Many of our gate styles include hand forged scrolls or ornamentation, and to ensure quality in such applications, we only use solid material for those designs. If the style allows for it, we use ½” steel sheets to precision cut logos, initials, numbers, or anything else you can imagine for your gate.

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 depicted as 5’ x 14’, but we are able to embrace the uniqueness of every project. We can custom tailor any of our gate styles to the correct size and proportions required for your application. We field measure where the gate is desired, after your driveway is installed, to ensure we can provide you with the perfect fit. If you are installing masonry columns along your driveway, we will supply you with gate liner posts to be installed before the columns are. Masonry is then applied over the liner post, and once the posts are completely and properly installed, we will field measure to get everything sized properly.

Endless Customization

We are the manufacturer! All our gates are made to order and we are able to customize any of our styles to fit your project. With our collection of base-styles, we can simply adjust proportions, or we can completely customize the design to correctly fit any application physically and aesthetically. Hand worked scrolls, precision cut logos, and fine details just scratch the surface of what our designers can adjust in order to make a truly one of a kind, custom drive gate. We also have the ability to adjust materials, to fit your budget or preference. The customization options are endless!

A Quality Finish

Our strongest recommendation for finishing your drive gate is our powder coated finish. We bake on our polyester powder coat only after the gate is fabricated and constructed in its entirety. All welds are smoothed to form a seamless structure, and each piece is then sandblasted to remove any remaining imperfections or contaminants. A powder coat is then applied and baked onto the surface to create a strong, long lasting finish.

Installation

We are able to offer local installation services to customers located in the Columbus, Ohio area.
