Orlando Florida Aluminum Driveway Gates

Aluminum Drive Gates
Built from extremely corrosion resistant nautical grade aluminum sheet, this is a huge single swing gate with the “canvas” measuring approximately 16′ wide by 8′ tall. Aluminum sheets this size are quite difficult to find. Typically they are used in the ship construction industry and for military grade armor plating applications. After much searching we were finally able to source three of these sheets and have them hauled from an aluminum mill in Maine to our custom gate facility in Ohio. From there we will be hauling the finished gates directly to our customer in Orlando. The gates will be offloaded there and the installation will be handled by a local installer who will be installing electric gate openers sufficient to handle these massive gates. Luckily, aluminum is much lighter than steel which means the forces of gravity and wind will be exerting less force on the gates and requiring less force to be exerted by the openers to open and close the gates.

Indiana Custom Driveway Gates
Plasma Cut Wildlife Scene by JDR Metal Art
This is a dual swing driveway gate we built for a gentleman and his wife who own a wooded property near Vincennes, Indiana. We built everything by hand at our shop using a plasma cutter and welder. We then powder coated the gates and the mounting posts; first with a zinc rich primer, followed by oil rubbed bronze, topped off with a glossy clear finish coat.
The gates feature deer, a fox and a bear in a woodland setting. The name of the property, “Whispering Pines”, is hand cut into steel and welded to the top of the gates.
Driveway Gates Cincinnati Ohio
These Cincinnati Ohio driveway gates were built and installed by JDR Metal Art. They are 16′ wide and feature two whitetail deer and a fox in a woodland setting. It was custom designed, drawn out and plasma cut by hand.
Each gate panel is plasma cut from 11ga. cold rolled steel and framed with steel 2″ square tubing that has walls 1/8″ thick. They weigh approximately 250 lbs per panel.They were painted black with urethane paint.
We used steel 4″ square tubing with 1/4″ wall thickness for the posts and then filled them with concrete and rebar for added stability. The hinges are steel blocks with J-bolts and stainless steel ball bearings. We installed automatic gate openers and automated exit devices with these gates.
