Ironmongery and Hinges

One of the key elements of all gateways be it manual or automated is the ironmongery and hinges. They are often the most under estimated part of the project and installation.

Using the correct type of hinge can give you so much more than just hinging the gates to swing. The hinge should be made in such a way that they are fully adjustable so the gates are future proved against any potential sagging. Also for larger gates they should be L in shape . This will help brace out the corners of the hanging style. Bracing the corners will add a great deal of additional strength to the gate framework and structural integrity of the wooden gate. As well as being highly functional, hinges can also embellish the over all design and look of the gates. Giving them the feel and over all look of quality. Fit to stand the test of time. Even if you have a driveway with a slope we can manufacture hinges and change the geometry to ensure the gate rises to follow the gradient of the slope. Please refer to the below pictures for the example.

There are a wide range of additional ironmongery that goes on the gates with the hinges. Brenton bolts that slide across at the top of the gate. Drop down bolts that secure the gates into the floor in the middle of the gates. We have a full range of lock,handles and ornamental ring latches to suit any style of hardwood gates.
