High Quality 14 Foot Driveway Gate
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 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.

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.
