This artsy tree themed driveway gate was built for a Virginia estate entrance. It totals 16′ wide by 8′ tall and weighs 350 lbs.
Metal Prep: The Foundation of an Exceptional Gate Finish
Sandblasting prepares the steel for the powder coat finish by removing rust, mill scale and other soils from the surface. Here the plasma cut tree is getting cleaned up with a large supply of compressed air and silica sand.
Silhouette Driveway Gates for Whispering Horse Ranch in Kansas City, MO
Here we have a set of horse themed Kansas City driveway gates which was designed for a 14′ entrance and custom built by JDR Metal Art. This project was turned around in about 2 weeks from the time of deposit until we shipped it from our Columbus, Ohio facility.
Custom Made in the USA
We used all US made steel for the frame and silhouettes with 1/8″ thick steel sheet for the horse and fence silhouettes. The gate frames are mixture of square tubing in 1/8″-1/4″ wall thickness (the thicker tubing being for the hinge side of the gate frames). The entry gate posts are 4″ square tubing steel with 1/4″ wall thickness and the hinge sockets are welded to them and include grease fittings and stainless steel ball bearings for a super-smooth swing.The arches were bent with a hand roller and the gate silhouettes were cut by hand with a plasma cutter.
Powder Coated Tough
The gates and posts were pretreated with an eco-friendly rust preventive and bonding promoter (Picklex) and then electrostatically coated with two passes of 60% gloss black super durable grade powder coat baked to a finish at 400 degrees in our in-house powder coat oven. Then we packed them up on a crate with plenty of foam and cardboard to protect the beautiful powder coat finish during transit to their final destination at a Kansas City residence.
