Care Guide

Aluminium driveway gates with a powder-coated finish offer durability and resistance to corrosion, but proper care is essential to maintain their appearance and longevity. Follow these guidelines to keep your gate looking its best:

Regular Cleaning: Wipe down your gate with a soft cloth or sponge and mild detergent solution regularly to remove dust, dirt, and other debris. Rinse thoroughly with clean water afterward.

Avoid Abrasive Cleaners: Refrain from using abrasive cleaners, steel wool, or harsh chemicals on the powder-coated surface, as they can scratch or damage the finish.

Inspect for Damage: Periodically inspect your gate for any signs of damage, such as scratches, chips, or fading. Address any issues promptly to prevent further deterioration.

Touch-Up Paint: If you notice any minor scratches or chips in the powder-coated finish, use touch-up paint specifically designed for metal surfaces to conceal the damage and prevent corrosion.

Protect from Harsh Elements: Aluminium driveway gates with a powder-coated finish offer exceptional protection against extreme weather conditions and saltwater environments. The powder-coated finish acts as a barrier, shielding the gate from moisture, UV radiation, and corrosive elements present in harsh environments. By choosing an aluminium garden gate with a powder-coated finish, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your gate is well-equipped to withstand the rigours of outdoor exposure while maintaining its appearance and functionality for years to come.

Avoid Abrasive Contact: Be cautious when placing or moving objects near your gate to avoid scratching or damaging the powder-coated surface.

By following these care instructions, you can preserve the beauty and integrity of your aluminium driveway gate with a powder-coated finish for years to come.

    Frequently Asked Questions.

    How do I know the right size gate for my driveway opening?

    Selecting the correct size gate for your space is essential for both the functionality and aesthetics of the installation. To ensure you choose the right size, we've provided a detailed sizing guide on each product page on our website. Here's a brief overview of what to consider:

    Width:

    • Measure Your Opening: Start by measuring the width of your gate opening.
    • Add the Required Clearance: The total width of the opening should be 20-60mm wider than the standard width size of our gates. This extra space accounts for 5-25mm on each side for the hinges and an additional 10mm clearance between the gate leafs, ensuring they close properly without any obstruction.

    Height:

    • Measure Your Opening Height: Measure the height from the ground to the top of the opening.
    • Include Space for Hinges: The total height of the opening needs to be at least 100mm higher than the standard height of the gate. This allows for 50mm space at the top and 50mm at the bottom for the hinges, ensuring the gate can swing freely without touching the ground.

    Following these guidelines will help you determine the appropriate size for your gate, ensuring a perfect fit and smooth operation. For detailed instructions and visual aids on how to measure your opening correctly, please refer to the sizing guide available on the product page of the gate you are interested in.

    Can the driveway gates be automated?

    Absolutely! Our driveway gates are designed to be compatible with various types of automation systems, including both underground motors and overground operators. This flexibility allows you to choose the automation solution that best fits your needs and preferences.

    While our gates are ready to accommodate any standard automation system, please note that we do not stock or supply automation products directly. We recommend consulting with a professional automation supplier or installer to select the appropriate automation system for your gate. They can provide you with expert advice on the best type of automation for your specific gate model and installation environment.

    I have an opening wider than your widest standard driveway gate size?

    If your gate opening exceeds our widest standard gate size of 4000mm, and adding posts would not adequately fulfill your requirements, we have a solution for you. We can arrange for factory-ordered gates to be customised to the exact width you need.

    To initiate the process for factory-ordered gates, please click here to access our custom order request form. This form will allow you to provide us with the specific dimensions and details of your gate requirements. Once we receive your request, our team will work closely with you to ensure that the gates are tailored to your precise needs.

    What thickness are the driveway gates?

    Our driveway gates have a standard thickness of 55mm, providing a sturdy and secure structure for your property.

    To access detailed dimensions and specifications for each gate model, we recommend visiting the product page on our website. On each product page, you will find a downloadable PDF dimension drawing that provides comprehensive information about the gate's size, shape, and other important measurements. These dimension drawings are invaluable for ensuring that the gate will fit your specific installation requirements.

    Here's how to find the dimension drawing:

    Do you stock sliding gates?

    At this time, we do not offer sliding gates as part of our current product lineup. However, we understand that sliding gates are a valuable and practical choice for many customers, and we are actively working on expanding our product offerings to include sliding gates in the future.

    What are the floor-mounted hinges used for?

    Floor-mounted hinges are used for two purposes. Firstly, they are used when using aluminium posts as a support for the gate. Secondly, they are used when you prefer to distribute the weight of the gate onto the floor rather than solely relying on the wall for support.
