FAQs about our wooden gates What sort of gates do you make? We make a wide range of wooden gates including farm gates, Tudor gates, driveway gates and garden gates. We also make steel gates. What sort of timber do you recommend for a farm gate? We like to use kiln-dried Australian hardwood for gates in paddocks because you don’t have to seal it, it’s light, durable, not prone to rotting and will not warp. They are perfect for country gates that are exposed to tough conditions. Do your gates come with hinges supplied? For every wooden gate we sell, we make sure it has appropriate gate hardware to accompany it. We manufacture all our own hinges, gudgeons and latches. They are robust, hand crafted and designed to suit the weight of your chosen timber gate. How big do you make your gates? We advise customers that an individual swinging gate should cover an opening up to 3.6 metres wide. Anything beyond that and it’s preferable to select double gates, with a maximum total span of 7.2 metres, which works well for impressive entrance gates to your property. And, at the other end of the scale, we can craft wooden garden gates that are only 90 centimetres wide. What sort of wood do you use? We use a range of timber but we love working with Australian hardwoods and oregon. We use recycled and new timber. Can I get you to make a gate of my own design? Yes, we can work closely with clients to build a gate to their design. Please contact us to discuss your design ideas. What areas do you service?
