Garden Gate Styles
The vast majority of the gates we sell are made in house allowing us to maintain the exceptional quality for which we have become known. Our range of gates constantly increases and evolves but all have one thing in common- they are made by time served craftsmen with an expert eye for detail.
All our gate frames are constructed from 94 x 45mm Planed square edged timber. This timber is cut from slow grown Swedish unsorted (the highest grade) redwood 225 x 50mm boards allowing for the centre 25mm to be removed leaving two, extremely stable, 100 x 50mm sections. (The heartwood of a tree is undesirable in joinery quality timber because of its habit of distorting.) These sections are then planed all round, kiln dried and pressure treated to further increase their longevity.
Our Tongue, Grooved and V rebated boards are specially milled for us from the same slow grown Swedish Redwood and have an extended tongue. This allows for the (entirely normal) movement of the timber whilst not allowing gaps to appear between the boards as standard TG&V would. Our boards finish at 120 wide x 15mm thick.
We always carry standard 1775mm high x 900mm wide closeboard (featheredge) and TG&V gates in stock and very often have other styles on the shelf. We also carry a range of 900 x 900mm gates ready to go. All other styles and custom sizes are made to order and can take up to 2 weeks at busy times.
When ordering bespoke gates we would need to know the following information;
1/ Style of gate. Either pick one from our range or if you have seen one you would like us to replicate supply a sketch (back of an envelope is fine) or photo.
2/ Sizes. Either metric or imperial (or a mixture of both!!) We need the finished height of the gate (or total height of the opening) and the width of the gate (or total width of the opening) If you give us the total dimensions of the opening we can work out the finished dimensions of the gate which usually is best.
3/ Hand. The gate will be braced either left or right. As the gate settles this allows for the weight of the gate to bear down on the hinges and stops excessive drop. When looking at the front of the gate I;e the good side it will be hinged on either the left or right- its as simple as that.
4/ Most, If not all of our gates can be made as equal or unequal pairs. Give us a call at the planning stage and we can talk you through the options.
