Kansas City Equine Themed Ranch Driveway Gates by JDR Metal Art

Silhouette Driveway Gates for Whispering Horse Ranch in Kansas City, MO

Driveway gate with horse design.

Here we have a set of horse themed Kansas City driveway gates which was designed for a 14′ entrance and custom built by JDR Metal Art. This project was turned around in about 2 weeks from the time of deposit until we shipped it from our Columbus, Ohio facility.

Custom Made in the USA

We used all US made steel for the frame and silhouettes with 1/8″ thick steel sheet for the horse and fence silhouettes. The gate frames are mixture of square tubing in 1/8″-1/4″ wall thickness (the thicker tubing being for the hinge side of the gate frames). The entry gate posts are 4″ square tubing steel with 1/4″ wall thickness and the hinge sockets are welded to them and include grease fittings and stainless steel ball bearings for a super-smooth swing.The arches were bent with a hand roller and the gate silhouettes were cut by hand with a plasma cutter.

Powder Coated Tough

The gates and posts were pretreated with an eco-friendly rust preventive and bonding promoter (Picklex) and then electrostatically coated with two passes of 60% gloss black super durable grade powder coat baked to a finish at 400 degrees in our in-house powder coat oven. Then we packed them up on a crate with plenty of foam and cardboard to protect the beautiful powder coat finish during transit to their final destination at a Kansas City residence.

Custom Designed Gates

We modified this gate design from and existing one to suit our client’s driveway entrance. Each gate panel was made 9’6″ long and will be hung from posts sunk deep into the Louisiana ground for a dual swing entrance gate.

Plasma Cut by Hand

Custom plasma cut gate lettering identifies our client’s estate and the year it was established. We also added a pair of ducks to each of the arched top gates and a wild boar on the left side. All the different design aspects were both laid out and plasma cut entirely by hand.

Cheap Shipping Rates

We were able to get a shipping rate of $320 for this client shipping via SAIA Motor Freight with a 2 day transit time. He had the gates shipped to his business where he unloaded them with a forklift. The entire package weighed about 600 lbs with each gate weighing about 250lbs and the packing being the rest of the weight.  We palletize the gates in a way they can also easily be taken off the trailer by hand one gate at a time with the help of 3-4 people.

West Virginia Driveway Gates | Custom Plasma Cut Deer & Turkey Scene

West Virginia Driveway Gates

Recently at JDR Metal Art we built this handmade West Virginia driveway gate with some design help from our clients. They gave us some photos of a turkey tom and hens, as well as a whitetail doe, which we added into modified version of our standard silhouette style deer driveway gate.

Being a dual swing gate, each panel is 7′ wide and weighs about 200 lbs. We used 1/8″ thick steel for the gate material. We supplied heavy duty 4×4 steel posts with 1/4″ thick walls, as well as J-bolt hinges rated for 600 lbs per side. We powder coated everything with a black super durable polyester finish. The clients then came and picked up the finished product. They hung the gates themselves and had a professional gate opener installer wrap up the project with automated openers.
