Wisconsin Driveway Gates

12′ Oak Tree Dual Swing Theme by JDR Metal Art

Here is one of our most recent Wisconsin driveway gates; it’s a 12′ dual swing plasma cut oak tree gate with a customized oil rubbed bronze powder coat finish. We are delivering these gates from Ohio to Green Bay, WI.

These plasma cut gates are 5’6″ tall on the outside/hinge rails. The center height is fabricated to 7’6″. Once hung from their posts, the center height of the gates will be about 8′ above grade. We used 1/8″ minimum thickness for all the 2×2″ tubing on the frame. All the pickets are cut from 3/4″ square tubing with a 14ga wall thickness.. The posts are 4×4″ square tubing with 1/4″ wall thickness. The posts and gates also have their adjustable sealed-bearing hinges prefabricated and ready to bolt together for easy installation.

Oil Rubbed Bronze Powder Coat Finish

We applied a powder coat finish to all components of these plasma cut gates. Starting with a base of zinc rich primer (formulated for superior corrosion resistance), we then added a layer of oil rubbed bronze color coat. A third and final layer, clear gloss, was then applied and baked on to bring out the metallic flake in the color coat. The clear coat also prevents oxidation and weathering of the metallic flake, thereby extending the life of the beautiful oil rubbed bronze finish and adding another layer of durability.

Texas Driveway Gates |Dual Swing Oak Tree & Animal Design

Texas Driveway Gates with Metal Art Oak Tree

These oak tree metal art driveway gates were just completed today and are being shipped by SAIA Motor Freight to Waco, Texas.

Texas driveway gates featuring plasma cut oak trees, horse, mule and a dog silhouette.

They are custom designed & plasma cut for an 18′ dual swing gated entrance and feature numerous trees, a horse, a mule, a dog, and two-tone powder coated finish.

 Custom Two-Tone Powder Coated Finish

1st Coat: Zinc Rich Primer

Goes on gray and adds a critical layer of corrosion protection to the steel surface. Basically functions the same as hot dip galvanizing. The zinc is the final layer of protection from rust and extends the service life of these gates by halting rust before it ever begins. While powder coat is EXTREMELY durable, a scratch through the zinc clear to down the metal surface will not even rust for a very long time due to the nature of the zinc and the protection it affords.

2nd & 3rd Coat: Atlas Copper from Prismatic Powders

This is a Black and copper contrast with a smooth and mild texture.

The 2nd coat was Atlas Copper…we also made the 3rd coat this color in order to get it to blend well.

4th Coat: “Clear Vision” Clear Coat

This is the final coat. As you can see below, it went on as a white colored dust…once the metal art oak tree silhouettes were heated up in the powder coat oven past 250F the clear coat was transformed into a clear finish that adds an extra layer of durability and protection from the elements.

This textured copper adds a nice level of distinction from the artwork in the background.  The framework that the oak tree mounts to is our standard 60% glass black “super durable” powder coat specially formulated to withstand many years of extreme sun and weather exposure.
