This is a selection of our pictures of wooden gates. Here is some more information about our standards of construction
The Ashbourne gate is boarded allong the bottom with a open serpentine top with steel infill bars. The gate has a robust gothic aesthetic and is a very stylish choice for small to medium gateways.
A Eastwood style gate made from softwood and stained in medium oak stain. The Eastwood style is basicaly a flat topped close boarded gate with the addition of a very slight curve to the top rail, providing a simple elegence to its look. The picture was taken during a snow storm in the Derbyshire peaks. Definately a good time and place to have an automatic gate.
The Chesterfield gate is very stylish fusion of hardwood and wrought iron style infill's. This particular installation is not automated but the design is very suitable for gate automation
The Uttoxeter gate is a chunky hardwood frame with a serpentine curved top, the enclosed sections of the gate can be filled with close boarded paneling or steel infills. This example has steel bars with baskets in the bottom two rows and fluers-de-lis top bars in the top row.
Our Mapperley design is flat topped with mullions spaced regularly along the gates length giving a contempary aesthetic.
A Bakewell style is a classic serpentine curve topped gate. This example is made with Cedar
A Mickleover gate is a varient of the Uttoxeter gate with scroll infill instead of bars
A Bakewell gate made in cedar wood and stained black. Cedar has a very prominent grain and the stain brings this out to great effect. The overall effect looks more dark grey with the lines of grain this could be darkened by further staining but many customers like to be able to feature the grain on their hardwood gates.
A pair of 'Derby' gates painted green. The 'Derby' design has a single convex curve flattening out towards the centre giving a slightly more imposing look than the Buxton design. This example is painted green rather than stained hidding the grain and giving a more uniform colour
This Bakewell style gate is beatifully stained and also shows a letterplate for the letterbox cut into the left hand gate leaf.
