Missouri Driveway Gate

Metal Art Oak Tree Gate with Horse Cutouts Delivered to Missouri

Missouri oak tree drive entrance gate featuring horses by JDR Metal Art

We completed this JDR Metal Art Missouri driveway gate in the summer of 2014.

It is a plasma cut driveway gate we custom designed, built and delivered from our gate shop in Columbus, Ohio to Missouri. It is 15′ long and approximately 8′ tall in the center. Our clients graciously sent us the picture after we installed the gate and their brick columns and concrete driveway were later completed, complementing their new 16′ single swing oak tree gate.

This was the longest single piece gate we had built up to that time (until the next Missouri driveway gate we designed and built). Usually we end up splitting the gate into two pieces. This was a setup where fabricating a large single swing gate did not present an issue. We used all 1/8″ thick steel wall tubing for the framework. The oak tree silhouette itself was plasma cut by hand out of a 3/16″ thick sheet of steel. The two metal art horses which accent the tree are also plasma cut from 3/16″ sheet metal. After we put the oak tree leaves on the gate we then sandblasted everything, pretreated it and baked on two coats of “Super Durable” exterior grade black powder coat.

Plasma Cut Tree Headboard

For these particular clients we also built a custom metal art headboard to match a Cali-King size bed frame. It was powder coated with a special order grey metallic flake finish.

Metal Art Deer Scene

30′ Automatic Sliding Gate

Shipped to Missouri on 53′ Flatbed

This driveway gate was custom designed for a drive entrance located in Missouri.

The steel wildlife scene is 18′ long and depicts two buck deer, a doe and two fawns on a woodland background. We worked with our clients through their contractor to come up with the gate design.

We also incorporated the street address and family name at the bottom of the gate.

The remaining 12′ of the gate is a frame which will be attached to the automated slide gate opener system.

The driveway gate silhouette was both drawn and cut entirely by hand with the help of a plasma cutter.

We used a 3/16″ thick plate of steel for the canvas and 2.5″ square tubing for the frame. The top is arched to accommodate the tree line.

We applied Picklex as a metal  pretreatment in order to eliminate surface oxides and condition the metal for maximum bonding and rust protection.

We then sprayed two coats of industrial rust preventive primer (red oxide) followed by two coats of glossy black rust inhibiting finish paint.
