Our favourite Joan Fontaine film – Rebecca (1940)
The lovely spear shaped railhead creates a striking style that is well suited to traditional properties but is also simple enough to compliment the more modern home. The railhead itself is an impressive 150 mm tall x 48 mm wide and is mounted on a 20mm round base. Together with the 20mm round vertical infill bars and the sturdy framework these gates look truly majestic. A clean and unfussy finishing touch.
These double gates come complete with a flip latch, adjustable eye bolts, a lockable drop bolt and a slide bolt as standard.

All sizes quoted are gap sizes not actual gate sizes so please measure from brick to brick and we will calculate all allowances for brackets, hinges, clearances etc. before we make your gate. Please see How to Measure Accurately for further advice before placing your order. If you cannot see the size you need please contact us with the dimensions you require and we will prepare a quote for you. We make bespoke sizes without the high price tag of made to measure products. For example if you require a gate measuring 1150mm high x 914mm wide we would only charge you for 1220mm high x 914mm wide (the next size up in our price band).
Heavy duty posts are required for these gates, POA.
We make each pair of gates to order and to the exact size(s) each customer requires, therefore please note that yours will be a truly bespoke order.

Also included free of charge is a fixing kit comprising brackets, hinges, latches, nuts and bolts required to bolt your gates into place.

Please see information below on the different finish options available.
Hot Dip Galvanizing
This is a protective coating that is carried out to British Standard BS EN ISO 1461. It provides rustproof protection for 50+ years. Please note that hot dip galvanized products have a bright silver/grey appearance that, if left unpainted, will weather over time. Our galvanized products may have a slightly uneven colour and texture due to the fine finishing we carry out by hand which we call linishing. We do this to smooth out small burrs or shards of zinc that naturally occur during the galvanizing process. This does not diminish the protective properties provided by the galvanizing.
Our top specification finish is hot dip galvanized and powder coated which provides an extremely durable and maintenance free finish.
Provides a much harder finish than conventional paint. Our powder coating is applied to an average thickness of 80 microns, exceeds the industry standard of 60 microns and complies with British Standards BS EN ISO 13438. Comes in a high quality black satin finish giving a lustrous sheen. Other colours of powder coating are available on request, please email us with your requirements.
Unless your ironworks are galvanized first rust will begin to show through over time though this may not happen for several years depending on the surrounding environment. This is not a fault but is a natural trait of steel and any rust spots that appear on powder coated goods can be sanded down and touched up with paint suitable for exterior metal surfaces.
