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.
Featuring a whitetail deer, antelope and turkeys, we are building three of these single swing aluminum gates for our client.
With a nationwide client base, we specialize purely in the design, fabrication and powder coating of custom driveway gates.
Aluminum Drive Gates
Built from extremely corrosion resistant nautical grade aluminum sheet, this is a huge single swing gate with the “canvas” measuring approximately 16′ wide by 8′ tall. Aluminum sheets this size are quite difficult to find. Typically they are used in the ship construction industry and for military grade armor plating applications. After much searching we were finally able to source three of these sheets and have them hauled from an aluminum mill in Maine to our custom gate facility in Ohio. From there we will be hauling the finished gates directly to our customer in Orlando. The gates will be offloaded there and the installation will be handled by a local installer who will be installing electric gate openers sufficient to handle these massive gates. Luckily, aluminum is much lighter than steel which means the forces of gravity and wind will be exerting less force on the gates and requiring less force to be exerted by the openers to open and close the gates.

Custom Ornamental Driveway Gates Shipped to Washington
Plasma Cut Driveway Gates
We worked with a client from the state of Washington to design these ornamental driveway gates. The design theme features a bear and a moose in a background that reflects the client’s locale.
If you look closely you can see that the gates are hung from steel posts placed directly behind a magnificent overhead entryway that features bears carved from wood!
Driveway Gates Built to Last
Each driveway gate panel is 11′ wide for a total gate width of 22′. The panels weigh approximately 325 lbs. per side. We used heavy wall 7 ga. tubing for the frames so there is plenty of structural support to easily withstand winds and the forces of being repeatedly opened and closed by automated gate openers. The driveway gate silhouettes are cut from 11ga. sheet. The gates and posts were pretreated and then powder coated black multiple times to build a nice thick rust preventing barrier between the steel and the Washington environment.
Artistic Driveway Gates, Competitively Priced
At JDR Metal Art driveway gates, not only do we build our driveway gates to last, we design and build them in a way that allows us to provide a beautiful artistic driveway gate at or lower than the cost of our competitors who simply provide plain looking gates mass produced in either Mexico or China. Why settle for less from them when you can get more from us? We are proud to provide our customers with metal art gates handcrafted in the USA!
Customized Designs for Driveway Gates
We enjoy working with people from all walks of life in order to help them create a gate that will make a lasting statement about who they are and what they stand for. It is an honor and a privilege to be given such an opportunity on an everyday basis. It is a challenge that we don’t take lightly. We are receptive to the many factors that go into bringing out the full design potential in each customer’s driveway gate design process.
Nationwide Shipping, Lowest Rates
We ship most of our custom made driveway gates via motor freight. They are crated up and shipped from our fabrication and powder coating facility in Columbus, Ohio to the final destination. The gates can be shipped directly to your residence, to a local business, or picked up from a local freight terminal.
