High Quality Custom Gates

We strive to provide our customers with the highest quality and best-built steel & aluminum driveway gates attainable. There is no cutting corners, even the smallest details are just another opportunity for us to achieve excellence for our clients.

Beautiful Welds, Structurally Perfect

We do all of our own fabrication work. To make sure the metals are of highest quality, we only stock steel and aluminum that is manufactured in America.

Perfect welds not only look visually appealing but also seal out moisture intrusion and make the gates very strong & durable.

Competitively Priced Ornamental & Decorative Steel & Aluminum Gates

We have the ability to build decorative gates from either steel, iron or aluminum.

We most commonly use steel because it is very strong and durable. However, steel, much like iron, is much more susceptible to corrosion than aluminum when exposed to moisture and air.

So when the situation calls for it, we also build aluminum driveway entry gates.

Aluminum gate enclosures are an option for those who need a lighter gate or heightened corrosion resistance. Aluminum is less than half the weight of steel and has a very high strength to weight ratio. Aluminum will still corrode but at a slower rate than steel and without the unsightly orange rust streaking.

Plasma Cut Gate Design Themes

Plasma cut gates are our specialty craft. The design themes are practically unlimited. Our process for creating plasma cut gate designs is always centered around the customer’s needs.

We work hand in hand with our customers to create the perfect design for their situation.

We build driveway gates which are compatible with both swinging and sliding gate openers for automated entry and exit control systems.

We Use The Heaviest Duty Materials Around

When it comes to our metal driveway gates, at JDR Metal Art we use 1/8″ material thickness minimum for all gate construction. Our standard mounting posts are made from 4×4″ square tubing with a minimum of 1/4″ wall thickness. We also use maintenance free sealed bearing hinges. No greasing is required to keep the gates swinging freely. Most of the framing is 3/16″ wall thickness. The competition typically uses metal (steel or aluminum) that is less than half as thick as the metal we choose to build with. Their gates simply won’t hold up in the long run because there isn’t much to absorb the shocks a gate is liable to be subjected to over the years.

We prefabricate the posts and hinge block mechanisms for each gate we build. That allows for a simplified installation with no on-site welding required. The hinges bolt together and are adjustable so that the gates can be kept level.

We use maintenance-free sealed bearing driveway gate hinges with a 2000lb load rating (per gate leaf). No greasing is required to keep the gates swinging freely. Our standard mounting posts are made from 4×4″ square tubing with a minimum of 1/4″ wall thickness.

Ranch Entry Gate Themes

Ranch gates are a great way to keep livestock inside your property while keeping unwanted vehicles out. Our custom ranch gates are designed to integrate with your overall ranch theme.

Your ranch is unique in it’s own way and ranch gates provide an opportunity to show it.



Personalized Residential Plasma Cut Gates

Our residential gates with plasma cut metal art silhouettes are as unique as your property.

Plasma cut drive gates are a great way to personalize your drive entrance. We personalized the gates shown above for a customer in Oklahoma. His children all love to golf so we designed for them two sets of  personalized16′ dual swing gates.

We also build plain residential driveway gates, of course, but it’s so much more fun when we can plasma cut personalized gates with names, logos, animals or other designs for our residential clients!

Powder Coated Driveway Gates Done Right!

Once upon a time we painted our gates. Then we learned that powder coating provides a better solution to paint. For five years we have done powder coating in-house to increase the finish quality and for much lower turnaround times. Our in-house powder coating system also helps us pass along lower costs to our clients.

Because we handle all stages of the powder coating process ourselves we get to see first-hand that it’s being applied properly, there is no second-guessing involved.

Rock-solid protocols are in place to ensure that the proper procedures are followed during every stage of the finishing process. Most gate companies simply outsource their powder coating which means their gates are typically being coated by low wage laborers  with very little oversight or interest in quality control.

Our Powder Coating Capacity = 20′ long x 9′ tall

With our powder coating line we have the capacity to powder coat ornamental iron driveway gates up to 20′ long and approximately 9′ tall. It is extremely rare that there is a driveway gate too large for us to apply a powder coated finish to. We can also paint them when needed.

The most critical aspect of metal finishing is, of course, proper part preparation and pretreatment. We use sandblasting to remove all rust, mill scale, and dirt from the metal gate surface. We also add eco-friendly cleaning and pretreatment solutions to prepare a very clean oxide-free metal surface. This sets the foundation for an extended coating life. It also eliminates toxic impact upon our environment.

Each steel gate receives a coat of zinc rich primer for added corrosion resistance. This primer gives our steel gates an outstanding amount of resistance to the formation of rust, even when the powder coat has been scratched all of the way down to the metal.

This is followed by top coats of exterior grade polyester powder coating that is baked to a beautiful finish. Some metallic finishes even get a clear coat or we can add a clear coat on special request! Our standard topcoat color is a 60% gloss black specially formulated for high color retention and resistance to the elements.

Aluminum gates are still sandblasted but they receive two coats of topcoat instead of any primer. The first layer of our polyester top coat acts as a primer layer on the aluminum.

The second layer is essentially just an added layer of protection that we like to put on for an even longer finish life.

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.

Properly powder coated steel gates will be free of rust corrosion because the coating forms a protective barrier layer over the metal.

Driveway Gate Installation

Our Gates Are Currently Installed in Over 30 States and Counting!

Over the years JDR Metal Art has installed hundreds of driveway gates nationwide.

Often times the demand for our gates was so high that we had to help our customers find qualified contractors in their area who could manage the driveway gate installation.

So we’ve also sent many hundreds of ornamental driveway gates across the country and developed a network of gate installers who are competent and familiar with installing them.

We have dozens of highly qualified gate installers in the states of California, Florida, New York, Texas, and all across the rest of the US.

Nationwide Gate Shipping – Fully Insured

We are highly experienced with shipping our custom driveway gates all over the place without damage. JDR Metal Art contracts with only the top rated freight carriers to have gates delivered to our clients nationwide. As frequent shippers we are able to secure high level service at the lowest prices available for our valued clients.

Gates are always securely wrapped and crated with foam packaging inside and also fully insured in the unlikely event that damage would ever occur during transit.

Our clients often opt to pick up their new custom gates from their local UPS or FEDEX freight terminal themselves, or send their contractor to do it for them.

If residential delivery is the chosen method then gates and posts can also be offloaded from the freight truck either by forklift/skid steer or the skid can be quickly broken down upon arrival and the gates and posts offloaded by hand, one by one, with the help of several friends. Most gate panels weigh 250 lbs or less (more for much larger gates). Trucks with lift gates are available for our smaller gates at an extra fee.
