This custom designed iron driveway gate is being shipped from Columbus, Ohio to the Lazy K Ranch in Kansas. It is built with sheet metal that is adorned with hand wrought Mexican clavos while the gate frame consists of 2 inch square tubing featuring overlapping arches in the center. Both the tubing and sheet metal are all 1/8″ thick.
The sheet metal on each gate panel is covered with a total of five handmade Mexican clavos per left & right side.
Custom Designed Longhorn Silhouettes
We plasma cut the longhorns about 12″ tall, also from 1/8″ material.
Metal Art Driveway Overhead Sign
This “KC Ranch” sign will be going between the longhorn silhouettes across the top of the driveway.
Lazy K Ranch brand
This heavy gage sheet metal circle has the customer’s brand mounted to the front of it.
A pretty shade of…primer
After a bath in Rustoleum metal primer…primer helps the top coat bond better to the steel and adds a layer of protection against rust and oxidation.
Design Featuring Mini-Donkey, Gypsy Vanner, & Fresian Horses Standing at a Fence.
We custom designed and built this set of decorative driveway gates for the residence of a North Carolina gentleman’s home. As usual, it took us a few rounds of design work to come up with exactly what he wanted, but the end result turned out quite well:
These dual swing entry gates are 16′ overall and are ready for dual swing gate openers which will be mounted to columns after we delivered them from Ohio to their final destination a little north of Charlotte, North Carolina.
Each side weighs approximately 200 to 250 pounds . The steel is all 1/8″ material with the exception of the hinge side rails which are 3/16″ thick. The gates are very sturdy, built to last a very, very long time, and will add a lot of security to their new home.
Everything has been primed with a half gallon of Rustoleum Industrial Primer and then top coated with a gallon of glossy black Rustoleum Industrial Enamel for a guaranteed long lasting finish. I used an HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure) spray gun to ensure a uniform mirror-like finish coat with no runs or sags in the paint.
The automatic operators are likely to be the Estate Swing 1000D series which will include a keypad, automatic exit sensor, and remote controls.
We also have a set of gates going about an hour south of Charlotte and another set going to Atlanta, Georgia at this time. Rather than shipping them all out by freight we will be delivering them all in one round trip. Nice way to wind down after working hard putting together and finishing the last 5 projects which all seemed to hit at the same time.
