Custom Driveway Gate Silhouette Designs

We specialize in creating personalized driveway gate designs. Let us get to work designing your upcoming gate project with our custom gate design process.

Whether you want your custom entry gates to feature horses, dogs, cattle, whitetail or mule deer, bears, birds, elk, moose, trees, mountains, etc:  together we will work together to forge a brand new ornamental driveway gate according to your specific tastes, ideas, entrance measurements, and other special requirements. We also customize most of our existing gate designs to fit different entrances upon request. Once your custom gate design is finalized it typically takes 4-6 weeks to finish the gates and ship them out to our clients.

 Handcrafted Steel & Aluminum Metal Art Gates

Our plasma cut driveway gates are fabricated entirely by hand from raw material to finished product, preserving the human element of a trade thousands of years in the making. Every individual gate is unique in its own way.


We use 1/8″ material thickness minimum for our metal gates. The standard mounting posts are 4×4″ square tubing with 1/4″ wall thickness. We also build our own hinges. We build steel entrance gates and also build custom aluminum entrance gates when the situation demands heightened corrosion resistance or a lighter product.

Relentless Dedication to Quality

Eco-Friendly & Super Durable Powder Coat Finish

Our in-house powder coating system helps us pass along lower costs to our clients while ensuring proper procedures are followed during every stage of the finishing process. We have the capacity to powder coat ornamental iron driveway gates up to 20′ long and approximately 7′ tall.

The most critical aspect of metal finishing is proper part preparation and pretreatment. We use eco-friendly cleaning and pretreatment solutions to prepare a very clean oxide-free metal surface, thereby setting the foundation for an extended coating life while eliminating toxic impact upon our environment.

Each gate receives two coats of “Super Durable” exterior grade polyester powder coating which are baked to a beautiful finish. Our standard color is a 60% gloss black specially formulated for high color retention and resistance to the elements. Custom powder colors are otherwise available upon request. Powder coat is more durable than paint and yet any dings or scratches incurred during installation can quite easily be touched up with Rustoleum paint. Powder coating finishes can even be lightly sanded and painted over if one ever wanted to change the color of their gate.

Gates too large for our powder coat oven are still cleaned and pretreated as normal but are then painted with industrial Rustoleum paint or other paint of your choice for long lasting rust prevention and beauty.

Driveway Gates Made Ready To Automate & Install with Posts or onto Masonry Columns

We prefabricate the posts and hinge block mechanisms for each gate we build in order to allow for a simplified installation with no on-site welding required. The hinges are adjustable and come complete with ball bearings and grease fittings. All our metal art driveway gates are made to be automated with either solar and electric gate opener packages which can be installed by one of your local installers. We also know of numerous clients who have successfully installed the gate openers on their own.
