We designed, built, powder coated and shipped these custom ranch gates to our client in Colorado.
Gate opener brackets pre-welded for client
Our customer installed the Apollo gate openers himself. To make his job much easier we also mounted the gate opener brackets for his gate openers so that everything is ready for him to bolt together onsite.
Sandblasted Prior to Powder Coating
We sandblast our gates clean for ultimate adhesion and bonding of the powder coat to the metal surface.
Deer Themed Single Swing Steel with 6×6 Steel Posts
We built this single swing 14 foot steel gate and three posts for a customer in Illinois.
Standing over 6’3″ in the middle, this gate with deer design is very large and weighs nearly 400 lbs.
I added a third hinge socket to give the other two some strain relief…although they didn’t totally need it. All three custom made, high performance hinges utilize sealed roller bearings, bringing the rated capacity to nearly 5000 lbs of force.
The tubing frame is heavy duty 3/16″ walled 2×2 square tubing while the design is cut from 3/16″ steel sheet metal.

Aluminum Driveway Gate Plans
Aluminum driveway gates come in all shapes and sizes. This 13 foot dual swing tree themed gate plan was modified from an idea we developed several years ago for a Tennessee customer. For this plans we added fence panels on each side complement the metal art gate panels. The gate panels are about 6 1/2 feet tall where the metal art trees meet in the middle. The top gate and fence rails follow a slope from 4′ tall in the center of the driveway to 6′ tall at the outside of the fence panels.
Aluminum Gate & Fence Panels
These aluminum fence and gate panels utilize a 2×2″ tubing frame and 3/4″ tubing pickets. The tree cutout is made from 3/16″ thick aluminum sheet. The heavy duty hinges are roller bearing style and maintenance free.
Aluminum is the perfect material for building driveway gates because it won’t rust and is amazingly lightweight for how strong it is. It’s somewhat difficult to weld and takes a great deal of patience and practice to master. Aluminum also must be thoroughly cleaned before it can be welded or the welds will be weak and likely to crack out.
