Rodeo Driveway Gates | Western Bronco & Bull Rider Design Theme

Nashville Driveway Gates with Western Rodeo Bull & Bronco Rider Design Theme

These custom ranch gates outside Nashville, TN are definitely one of the coolest projects we’ve had the opportunity to be involved with..not to mention how great the customers were to work with!

We handcrafted each element of this driveway gate project from raw steel material using a band saw, plasma cutter and mig welder. These dual swing driveway gates are each complemented by a side panel. There is also an overhead sign which is wrapped with twisted steel rope. We sandblasted and powder coated each part with a customer-selected color for the ultimate long-lasting finish.

Dallas Ft. Worth Custom Gates -Plasma Cut Deer & Mountain Theme by JDR Metal Art

If you have a ranch in Texas, it’s a given that you’re probably gonna want a ranch gate that keeps people out and livestock in.

You might as well make it look good, while you’re at it!

Here’s an example of one of several we’ve created for clients in the DFW area of Texas over the past decade.

Driveway gates custom made by JDR Metal Art for Dallas Ft. Worth area residence.

JDR Metal Art designed, plasma cut and powder coated these dual swing gates for a client in the Dallas-Ft.Worth, Texas area.

Rugged Material = Rugged Driveway Gates

These gates were made to be extremely durable and long-lasting. We used all 3/16″ wall 2×2 square tubing for the gate frame. The silhouettes were hand cut from 3/16″ sheet metal. We also applied one layer of zinc rich powder coat primer and two topcoats of black exterior grade powder coat. Each gate panel weighs approximately 300 lbs!

Custom Aluminum Ornamental Driveway Gates | Texas Deer Theme

Aluminum Ornamental Driveway Gates

28′ Dual Swing Texas Deer Design

Rough draft for Texas ranch gates.

 

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.

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.

Final Effect:

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.
