West Palm Beach Florida Custom Aluminum Gates

West Palm Beach Florida Custom Gates

Swamp Themed Metal Art Design

These beautiful aluminum driveway gates were designed, handcrafted and given a beautiful powder coat finish by JDR Metal Art.

We worked with our West Palm Beach, Florida customer to modify a design for him based on a set of Louisiana driveway gates we had previously built in 2017.

The customer’s driveway entrance is 14′ wide. Each gate panel is 6’4″ tall at the peak and 7′ wide and weighs less than 100lbs. The installation of the gates will be provided by Budget Fence and Gate of West Palm Beach, Florida.

All material, both the square tubing frame and the silhouette art, is very heavy duty 3/16″ thick.

The gate panels will each hang from a stucco finished column for which we also made custom mounting brackets for our super-duty hinges to attach to.

Aluminum Driveway Gates with Heavy Duty Frame & Whitetail Antlers

Aluminum Driveway Gates

With Heavy Duty 2×4″ Rectangular Tube Frame

Customized for Tennessee Property by JDR Metal Art

Sometime people want an extra heavy duty rust free gate so here is one with a 2x4x1/4″ aluminum rectangular tube frame.

Although we used such a thick tube for the frame, the fact that it’s all constructed from aluminum means that the weight stays under 150 lbs. per leavy

The design incorporates a whitetail deer antler theme for our client who is located in Tennessee.

The antler silhouettes are plasma cut from 3/16″ thick aluminum sheets.

Each gate panel has mitered seams with beveled weld joints for extra strength.

The top of each gate panel has an S-curved arch

We powder coated everything in a fantastic looking flat black finish after sandblasting and pretreating all the aluminum to extend the life of the coating.

28′ Dual Swing Texas Deer Design

Texas Driveway Gates Deer Aluminum Rough Draft Design by JDR Metal Art 2016

Here is a custom designed aluminum ornamental driveway gate built for a client located in Texas by JDR Metal Art.

Each of the gate panels are 14′ wide, totaling 28′ in width.

Aluminum is an extremely light material. Each of these gate panels weigh only about 125 lbs, roughly 1/3 of what a similarly sized steel gate would weigh.

Plasma Cut Aluminum Gate Silhouettes

Using a plasma cutter, we hand cut all the silhouettes for these aluminum driveway gates. It leaves a nice clean cut that looks great.

Powder Coated Gate Finishing

We apply two coats of “Super Durable” exterior grade semi-gloss powder coat finish to our aluminum gates. The first coat acts as a primer and the second coat adds another layer of protection against the elements.

The powder sticks to the gate by means of an electrostatic charge. Once the whole gate is sprayed we push it into our curing oven. There it is baked at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. When the part comes out of the oven it is 100% cured. We do our powder coating in-house so we know everything is done right.

Crating & Shipping

We ship aluminum driveway gates nationwide. We build a wood crate on top of a shipping skid, then package the gate with blankets and foam. A lid is put over the top and everything strapped down securely to arrive in excellent condition every time.

Oregon Aluminum Driveway Gates with Elk

Oregon Driveway Gates

Plasma Cut Aluminum Elk Theme

At JDR Metal Art we custom built these aluminum driveway gates for a client’s home on the Pacific coast in Oregon. They are dual swing gates which are 18′ wide total (9′ per gate panel). They were built from aluminum per the special request of our customer. They are much lighter than our typical steel driveway gates. Each gate weighs roughly 100lbs. Here the gates are shown after we powder coated them black.

On the material specifics; we cut 1″ aluminum square tubing with a 1/8″ thick wall for the pickets. Cast aluminum finials were welded on top of the arched gate frames. The gate frames were made with 2″ square tubing, also 1/8″wall thickness. We welded J-bolt style aluminum hinges with ball bearing and grease fittings to the 4 x 4 x 1/4 square tubing posts. Once the gate posts are set in concrete, the J-bolts go through the gate frames and the driveway gates hang in the air. The gates are then leveled precisely by means of a nut and jam nut on each of the four J-bolts.

Aluminum Plasma Cut Gate Burnouts

We laid out and cut these metal art elk by hand with the assistance of a Hypertherm 30 amp plasma cutter. The elk are made from 3/16″ aluminum plate. The rings were hand rolled from 3/16″ plate also and they were then welded into the gate pickets.

Custom Driveway Gate Lettering

We also burned the lettering out with a plasma torch. Our customer’s last name was welded into the pickets at the bottom of the driveway gate. We are glad to say they now have a gate unlike any other!

Custom Aluminum Driveway Gate Design Work by JDR Metal Art

We worked with these clients from Oregon mostly via email to provide them with numerous drafts of the gate design until we were able to meet their needs for a custom gate design. It is always exciting to be creating something new for people and we were thrilled to ultimately be able to take part in bringing another driveway gate from concept to fruition.
