Custom Aluminum Driveway Gates | Athens GA Tree Design

Custom Aluminum Driveway Gates – Shipped to Athens GA

Featuring Unique Tree Design by JDR Metal Art

Here’s one of our recently built custom aluminum driveway gates.  It was handcrafted from lightweight, corrosion-resistant aluminum sheet metal and square tubing and super heavy duty hinges.

As it’s a dual swing gate, each gate panel is 7 feet wide in order to span a 14 foot wide driveway. Each gate panel is also approximately 7 foot tall where the gates meet in the middle.

This particular gate was delivered to a customer in Athens, Georgia. We also recently installed similar aluminum driveway gates in Louisville, Kentucky.

Here is a custom designed aluminum ornamental driveway gate built for a client located in Texas by JDR Metal Art.

Each of the gate panels are 14′ wide, totaling 28′ in width.

Aluminum is an extremely light material. Each of these gate panels weigh only about 125 lbs, roughly 1/3 of what a similarly sized steel gate would weigh.

Plasma Cut Aluminum Gate Silhouettes

Using a plasma cutter, we hand cut all the silhouettes for these aluminum driveway gates. It leaves a nice clean cut that looks great.

Powder Coated Gate Finishing

We apply two coats of “Super Durable” exterior grade semi-gloss powder coat finish to our aluminum gates. The first coat acts as a primer and the second coat adds another layer of protection against the elements.

The powder sticks to the gate by means of an electrostatic charge. Once the whole gate is sprayed we push it into our curing oven. There it is baked at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. When the part comes out of the oven it is 100% cured. We do our powder coating in-house so we know everything is done right.

Crating & Shipping

We ship aluminum driveway gates nationwide. We build a wood crate on top of a shipping skid, then package the gate with blankets and foam. A lid is put over the top and everything strapped down securely to arrive in excellent condition every time.

Florida Driveway Gates | Ornamental Aluminum Plasma Cut Gates

Sarasota Florida Driveway Gates featuring Plasma Cut Aluminum Metal Art Horses

Florida driveway gates in Sarasota featuring plasma cut scene of horses standing at a fence.

We designed & built these ornamental Florida driveway gates from aluminum here at JDR Metal Art. Each side of the gate features four plasma cut horses standing at a fence in front of a beautiful Sarasota, Florida horse farm.

Custom Gate Design

Our relationship with these customers began when they reached out to us about our custom plasma cut gate design capabilities in early 2014. As often happens with fully custom projects, the early stages of the design process can take some time to work through as different ideas come to mind and much thought and consideration is often invested by the customer in creating their new gate entrance. In this case the clients first sent us pictures and measurements of their entrance. We worked back and forth to refine the design to fit their farm theme.

By the time summer arrived our clients were ready to begin the fabrication stage. Around the same time they also contracted with Liberty Gates owner Ian McPherson to handle the gate installation locally. Ian brought to our clients attention that aluminum would fare much better than steel in the corrosive local Florida environment. The clients followed Ian’s advice and requested their gates to be built from aluminum.

Handmade Aluminum Gates

We began building the aluminum gates in September. We built the frame with 2″ square tubing 1/8″ thick wall aluminum . The canvas is 3/16″ aluminum sheet. In October fabrication was completed and the gates were then powder coated to a baked finish using a “super durable” grade semi-gloss black powder coat to finish the product. Super durable grade powder coat is formulated especially for outdoor products that will be exposed to the intense sunlight and moisture exposure of the Florida environment. Therefore, the gates will not only remain rust free thanks to the aluminum but they will also exhibit long lasting gloss retention and durability.

The aluminum proved to be more expensive and harder to work with but turned out great in the end! We are confident that these customers will get a lifetime of enjoyment from their new Florida driveway gates!
