At JDR Metal Art we specialize in designing stunning custom driveway gates featuring life-like plasma cut silhouettes of horses, trees, wildlife and more. Our ornamental driveway gates can be semi or fully customized to meet the needs of our diverse range of clients who are looking for something they can’t seem to find anywhere else.
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. Once the gate design process is completed we then fabricate, powder coat, package and ship our customized driveway gates to their new destination.
We Give Our Clients The Best of Everything
We use 1/8″ material thickness minimum for all of our custom metal driveway gates. The standard mounting posts are made from 4×4″ square tubing with 1/4″ wall thickness.
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 build mainly steel entrance gates but we also build aluminum entrance gates when the situation demands heightened corrosion resistance or a lighter product. Consistently beautiful structural welds seal all potential moisture access points to avoid rust and ensure maximum longevity.
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 a zinc rich primer for added corrosion resistance and at least two top coats of exterior grade polyester powder coating 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 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 the corresponding Rustoleum paint color.
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 of 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.
