Each Stonehenge Fence is customized to the project and made to withstand a high degree of torque and weight that would normally crush a standard gate.
Gates serve many purposes and can be constructed of a variety of materials. Before you decide on which products to use for your gate, consider the following questions:
- What is the gate’s purpose?
- Where will the gate be installed?
- Does the gate require automation?
- What are the gate’s dimensions?
- What climate and/or weather conditions will the gate be subjected to?
- Does the gate need to have a particular style or design (decorative coatings, colors, etc.)
Now that you have a clear idea of the function your gate will serve, you can make a more informed decision regarding the materials you should use.
Two of the most common materials used to make gates are metal and wood. Ornate or decorative gates are often made of metal (namely mild steel), which adds security and sophistication to any property, whether it’s classic or contemporary. Metal gates can be crafted into very artistic and complex designs.
Wood has traditionally been a favorite material for fencing and gates because of its natural beauty. Unlike iron gates, close board gates offer more privacy and security. If you use hardwood for your gates, they will be stronger and more durable, but can also be heavy to open. Wooden gates should be refinished periodically to protect them from the elements.
With the increasing popularity of composite, innovative companies like Trex have made it possible to install composite gates that provide a uniform look on both sides and are designed to match the rest of your composite fence, as well as complementing stone and concrete fencing. Composite gates are suitable for any commercial or residential fence and come with a hidden galvanized steel frame that offers strength and longevity.
Whether you’re in the market for an ornamental iron gate or a wooden privacy gate, there are plenty of options to choose from, including the increasingly popular composite fencing materials. If you need help deciding which products to use for your gate, contact Stonehenge Fence. We specialize in all gating systems, along with custom Trex gates which feature a patent-pendng steel internal frame. Each gate is customized to your fencing project and made to withstand a high degree of torque and weight that would normally crush a standard gate. All hardware is made of top quality galvanized steel, so there’s no need for a “crutch” on a Stonehenge Fence gate!
