A driveway gate can improve the security of your property as part of a broader home security plan. It allows you to control access to your land and keep your family and pets safe, particularly if you live on a busy road. This model is classed as a partial privacy gate as the curved top section is only partly infilled allowing visibility through it. It has a less intimidating, barrier feel about it than a totally solid infill gate, and will add a stylish touch to your drive.
This Double Swing Driveway Gate is made from aluminium which is both strong and of light weight. An outdoor product needs to be able to withstand the severe and changeable weather the UK experiences and so aluminium is an ideal material for a gate to be made from. It is highly resistant to corrosion making it very hard-wearing and long-lasting. The saline atmosphere of coastal regions is notoriously savage to metal, yet aluminium can withstand this too, so if you live by the sea, this type of gate would be a good choice for you.
The gate comes with a polyester powder coating in black or grey as standard and this gives it a defensive barrier against damage and rust. But it also gives it such a high-quality finish that will certainly enhance the overall look of your home. Other non-standard colours are available, please get in touch for details.
Available in the following heights: 1.6m, 1.8m, 2.0m and 2.2m, it comes with 4 wall-mounted hinges and 2 floor-mounted hinges. Please allow an extra 50mm for the hinges when you are measuring up. Gate Posts are required if there is nothing to fix the gate to and can be bought separately. They may not be needed if the gate is to be set within two walls. The lock and handle for the gate can be purchased as an add on for an additional price and it will be fitted to the gate before delivery.
This gate requires little in the way of upkeep, to maintain its good looks it just needs to be washed down with soapy water and rinsed off. It is an eco-friendly choice too as aluminium is a recyclable metal.
The aluminium gates come with a 5-year manufacturer’s guarantee (Ready Made Gates).
Please Note: The gates only open 1 way, 90 degree inwards from outside, they can be made to open outwards but this needs to be specified at the time of ordering, please contact us on 01283 512 111 for more information.
