Bespoke Gate Design & Gate Installation
Pictured here is the an example of the gate design work that we underatke: a medium sized pair of manual gates from fabrication to fitting. The antique gates are constructed from 40mm x 40mm (1 1/4" x 1 1/4") outer frames, 20mm (3/4") vertical bars and 25mm x 10mm (1" x 3/8") sandwich horizontal bars.
For larger gate sizes, these are altered accordingly. As the photos show, every care is taken to provide the customer with the finest quality work to last generations.
After fabrication is complete and inspected, the gates are galvanised (a form of zinc plating) to prevent corrosion. These are then fettled ready for painting.
Three coats of enamel paint, specially formulated to adhere to galvanised steel, is applied by high pressure spray. The gate design in the pictures has an antique copper patina finish (a distressed appearance of beautiful ageing copper). After carefully checking the post alignment and hinge geometry the gates are fitted and handed over to the customer.
We design and create beautiful bespoke gates adding to the security, aesthetics and value of your property.
We're based in the heart of the country - Staffordshire and Cheshire - but work all over the UK.
