Gates are a fun way to add the look of wrought iron to any space. Please remember our gates are NOT lightweight flimsy aluminum or tubing. Our gates are heavy and need adequate posts. In new construction, when planning for a gate such as a driveway entrance gate you must plan for posts. Many times these gates are flanked with stone or brickwork, you will need to discuss this with your stone mason and incorporate a metal post inside the masonry. If this is not done, there are this is not done, there are still ways to hide the metal post behind the masonry. Even a pedestrian gate could be too heavy, especially if it needs to be mounted to a conventional wall it may need to be reinforced. We have a wide variety of automatic gate operators from a simple hydraulic helper or pool gate hinge that closes every time it is opened, to high tech operators that you can access from anywhere in the world by telephone. Again complex openers need to be planned for in advance to prevent the need to dig through freshly laid asphalt or newly planted landscaping.
