We made these dual swinging steel gate panels each 7′ wide to accommodate our California customer’s 14′ wide driveway entrance. Each gate panel is 5′ tall on the ends and arches up to 6’4″.
Heavy Wall Steel Tubing Frame
We used extremely durable steel square tubing to build these gate frames. With a 3/16″ wall thickness for the the 2″ square tubing frame, each gate panel will support far more than it’s own weight. We know that using heavier tubing is more costly but it benefits our customer also by adding many years to the life of the gate.
Plasma Cut Gate Design
Our customer was looking for a gate design with horses and dogs included in it. We also wanted to design something that fit in with the background of the area the gate would be installed.
The design was plasma cut from 1/8″ thick sheet metal. We then welded each sheet into the gate frame. Each gate panel weighs about 200 lbs.

Sacramento, California Gate Created by JDR Metal Art
Featuring Plasma Cut Tree & Horses
Here is a rustic driveway gate we recently custom built and shipped out to a California customer. The gate frame, pickets and metal art elements are all built from heavy duty mild steel tubing and sheet. Rather than being powder coated, our client wanted these gates to rust naturally as they age outside. Soon they will take on a reddish-brown look.
18′ Dual Swing Driveway Gates
These “dual swing” driveway gate panels are each 9′ long in order to span the customer’s 18′ wide driveway.
2000lb Rated Heavy Duty Gate Posts & Hinges
Each gate panel is mounted by heavy duty gate hinges to 6×6″ square tubing posts. The hinges are adjustable so the gates can easily be leveled. With sealed roller bearings and a 2,000 lb maximum load rating these hinges are far more than adequate enough to keep our customer’s driveway gates swinging freely for many years to come.
