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.
