HARDWOOD DRIVEWAY GATES – THE STAFFORDSHIRE
When it comes to creating a Hardwood Sliding Gate, you can’t beat the effects that Iroko produces. A beautiful, natural hardwood that’s elegant and smooth, highly durable and has a density level of 660kg/m3 making it an extremely strong and long lasting. Iroko is even used for canal locks proving its long lasting features.Constructed using time served techniques such as mortise, tenon and dowel joints. Fitted with a solid bottom timber 70mm x 100mm to allow for the fitting of wheels and a large middle rail to allow for upright fixings and runners.
Sliding Gates (as one piece) can only be a maximum width of 11ft 10″ (3.6m). Sizes over this will require the gate to be in two sections that are then bolted together. This is to prevent the gate from twisting out of shape. All Sliding Driveway Gates will have a bottom and centre brace (8″ x 2″) to allow for rollers etc flush with bottom edge of gate to allow for wheels to be attached. Installation available on this sliding gate with either a manual or electric operating system.
Need a size that’s not listed? No problem, we can produce your gate to ANY SIZE
A Sample of wood used in construction is available on request. Width advertised is total width of gate. For example, widths over 12ft will need to be constructed as two and bolted together (due to risk of “twisting”). Rear view design can differ from image shown depending on the width of gate and/ or height.
