About our Sliding Gates:
Metal framed, timber infill sliding gates. All expertly crafted by hand in the UK. First by our skilled fabricators then to our experienced joiners for infill. Our metal framed gate range is what we are most proud of. Attention to detail both for look and durability is paramount. Sturdy 100mm x 50mm premium bottom rail, 50mm x 50mm framework, smooth welded joints and solid 30mm x 15mm rear bracing bars and stainless steel screws to fix the timber into place. To help prevent the gate from twisting or warping, welded braces are placed throughout the rear of the gate to ensure the cladding is correctly fixed. As timber is a natural product, it is prone to move during the seasons - in fact, a single piece of cladding can swell or contract up to 1.5mm, therefore, unlike others, we predict this movement and all gates are produced with a (non see through) expansion gap allowing the gate to "breathe" without anyone noticing it. The gap is dependant on gate size, and is usually between 5mm and 15mm which runs along the frame, parallel to the cladding width. This ensures stability of the gate without compromising the look. Choice of timber either Iroko (hardwood) or Western Red Cedar.
We believe the best finish is simply a black frame and oiled timber. This way, the beauty of the timber with it's deep natural tones, against a black frame really does look stunning. For those who want to compliment the gate to there property, any RAL colour can be ordered - just the frame or frame and timber.
