Specification

The depth, thickness and quality of materials used in the construction of hardwood gates is a key factor on how the gate will look and perform. We only use the finest Iroko hardwood. This ultimately produces a long lasting gate that really does “make an entrance”.

Rear Bracing: Most gates will be produced with a diagonal brace system. This is sometimes changed to an “A” brace design if needed due to size.

Why Choose Us?

We are UK’s largest bespoke gate manufacturer. All of our gates are expertly crafted by hand in the UK (not imported from abroad) using traditional, time served construction techniques. Great care and pride is taken to each and every one of our gates to ensure our customers gate is something they can be proud of.

What makes us different?

Compared to our competitors…a lot! Within manufacturing process. Deeper frames and thicker cladding to aid longevity of the gate. Traditional mortise, tenon and dowel jointed frames combined with the use of high grade, PVA adhesive to ensure frames are locked and secured in place. Hidden stainless steel screws to hold the cladding boards in position (not nailed in), and being hidden, increases kerb appeal. To help prevent the gate from moving and twisting, the frames are rebated to let the cladding expand and contract without effecting the gate structure. Finer details are applied such as smooth, routered edges and “V” groove joints to enhance the overall look of the gate. All of our gates can be purchased online to the nearest inch or call our team for an exact width measurement.

The process

So you’ve picked your gate, selected your sizes and ordered it online (or over the phone)…what happens next? Something we are quite proud of (and our customers love!). Once a customer has ordered and paid for their gate they go into our notification system. Customers are notified on every step during the gate production process via email and/ or text message. This includes when it’s in being cut, put together, QC (quality control), finish and delivery. Each of our production departments have scanners. Once they scan a product, the customer is notified of the update immediately.

Delivery

If you’ve ordered a smaller gate, a one man delivery service is used. For larger gates, a two man service is used. In any case, the customer does not need to help during delivery as we have it covered. You’ll be given a delivery date and time slot closer to the time.
