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.

Metal Art Deer Scene

30′ Automatic Sliding Gate

Shipped to Missouri on 53′ Flatbed

This driveway gate was custom designed for a drive entrance located in Missouri.

The steel wildlife scene is 18′ long and depicts two buck deer, a doe and two fawns on a woodland background. We worked with our clients through their contractor to come up with the gate design.

We also incorporated the street address and family name at the bottom of the gate.

The remaining 12′ of the gate is a frame which will be attached to the automated slide gate opener system.

Missouri wildlife driveway gates featuring deer silhouette plasma cut by JDR Metal Art.

The driveway gate silhouette was both drawn and cut entirely by hand with the help of a plasma cutter.

We used a 3/16″ thick plate of steel for the canvas and 2.5″ square tubing for the frame. The top is arched to accommodate the tree line.

We applied Picklex as a metalĀ  pretreatment in order to eliminate surface oxides and condition the metal for maximum bonding and rust protection.

We then sprayed two coats of industrial rust preventive primer (red oxide) followed by two coats of glossy black rust inhibiting finish paint.
