when we first met with the owner of this property he ask us to propose for Automatic Wooden Driveway Gates with classic gate design.
we designed the gate so it looks like integral part of the property, with its arched top, and heavy wood feeling.
since the driveway is angled and cant be changed, we designed the gate to be perfectly alligned on top, and compensate for the angle on the bottom.
Impress & protect
the gate design inspiration came from old days castle gates, with cloves and classic framing. to keep the gate resilient for years, we finished it with sealer, stain and varnish. this job alone took more than 30 man hours of sanding, coating, repeat.
the gate however needed not only as a beauty front of the house, but for privacy & security as well. so you can see where we installed the magnetic lock between the swings. this type of magnetic lock enhances the security and holds up to 1,000 Lb of pressure.
this wooden driveway gate got some serious weigh on it. it consist an iron frame and coated from both sides with redwood planks with tiny grooves for perfect alignment.
to hold this massive gate straight for the coming years we dig deep to the ground and insert 4*4 heavy gauge square tube galvanized post.
when it all aligned we pour about 1,000 Lb of concrete to hold it in place.
