Driveway Gates Oklahoma City – Elk Gate Design

Driveway Gates Oklahoma City

Made for Elk Ranch by JDR Metal Art

These Oklahoma City driveway gates were custom designed and handcrafted by JDR Metal Art for an elk ranch just a few miles north of Oklahoma City. We built three 15′ single swing gates with an elk and turkey gate theme that goes great with the client’s ranch property.

Elk Gate Design

We began with the customer’s design concept. After several drafts we finalized a design that the customer was comfortable proceeding with.

Sawing & Plasma Cutting the Material

Once the design was complete we began cutting material. Here’s a clip of the square tubing frame being mitered on a horizontal band saw. Miter cut parts are significantly stronger when welded and transfer force more efficiently than overlapped & welded parts.

Plasma Cutting

This is the main entrance to the ranch. The client installed the gates after delivery. Two other gate panels are installed elsewhere on the ranch. Gate is hung from a 6×6″ square tubing post and hinges are adjustable roller bearing hinges custom made by JDR Metal Art.
