Horse Themed Plasma Cut Gates

Here’s a metal art driveway gate project currently being built and then shipped to Washington state.

The metal artwork was cut on my newly built plasma cutting machine. The plasma table has been up and running reliably for about a month now and maintains accuracy to the width of a hair, or about three thousandths of an inch.

28′ Dual Swing Texas Deer Design

Texas Driveway Gates Deer Aluminum Rough Draft Design by JDR Metal Art 2016

Here is a custom designed aluminum ornamental driveway gate built for a client located in Texas by JDR Metal Art.

Each of the gate panels are 14′ wide, totaling 28′ in width.

Aluminum is an extremely light material. Each of these gate panels weigh only about 125 lbs, roughly 1/3 of what a similarly sized steel gate would weigh.

Plasma Cut Aluminum Gate Silhouettes

Using a plasma cutter, we hand cut all the silhouettes for these aluminum driveway gates. It leaves a nice clean cut that looks great.

Powder Coated Gate Finishing

We apply two coats of “Super Durable” exterior grade semi-gloss powder coat finish to our aluminum gates. The first coat acts as a primer and the second coat adds another layer of protection against the elements.

The powder sticks to the gate by means of an electrostatic charge. Once the whole gate is sprayed we push it into our curing oven. There it is baked at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. When the part comes out of the oven it is 100% cured. We do our powder coating in-house so we know everything is done right.

Crating & Shipping

We ship aluminum driveway gates nationwide. We build a wood crate on top of a shipping skid, then package the gate with blankets and foam. A lid is put over the top and everything strapped down securely to arrive in excellent condition every time.

Kansas City Equine Themed Ranch Driveway Gates by JDR Metal Art

Silhouette Driveway Gates for Whispering Horse Ranch in Kansas City, MO

Driveway gate with horse design.

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.
