Custom Gate General Information
We use only the finest quality aluminum and steel materials available to custom craft a gate for your property. You will find that your gates are economically priced and extremely sturdy because of uniquely engineered vertical weld design. Each base gate is jig built controlling the quality and placement of all key structural welds while reducing the cost of production. From our base design we can add beautiful ornamentation and custom sculpted top to complement your taste. Driveway gates enhance your life in many ways including security, adding value to property, style and sophistication, animal retention, and much more. Each gate comes standard with roller bearing hinges, 8 welds per picket, thick wall tubing, and a top quality paint process.
Structurally sound welding is the heart of a quality gate. Welding strategies under many conditions and engineered a superior eight-weld vertical system. The structural frame pickets are welded in 8 places and meet all of the American Welding Society’s standards. Four horizontal welds are done in a traditional manner and are commonly used by professional welders. Done correctly, they supply the strength needed to hold together a gate. Our four additional vertical welds, approximately 1-¼ inches in length, are done to give a higher level of stability and strength to the gate almost eliminating gate sag. Vertical welds are done so they are hidden from either side of the gate and are a sign of quality and care in construction, and we takes every step to make your new gate last a lifetime.
Pickets – The structural frame pickets are ¾ inches in length and ¾ inches in width with a thickness of .090 inches; 30% thicker than most gates on the market.
Crossbar – Each picket is sandwiched between two structural crossbars, at bumper height and at the top. These crossbars, are the pivotal point of strength that is unique to our gates. The front cross bat is 1 ½ X ¾ inch rectangular tubing with a wall thickness of .125in. The back crossbars are a full ¼ inch in thick, this thickness allows may automation options without modification.
Frame – Frame members are all 2in. X 2in. square tubing with a wall thickness of a full .125 or 1/8in. The added thickness over our competitors allows increased structural support and durability.
