Country farmers, cabin getaways, and rural property owners can easily prevent trespassers and secure your land with a driveway gate. An automatic gate opener can make life easier and may be worth considering.
Here are some pictures of our work. Hopefully these photos will help with your gate choices.
Rural Driveway Gates / Metal "Tubular"
Tube / Farm / Pasture Gates are readily available locally and can be purchased as galvanized silver, red, or black (very dark blue actually). Strong steel post from 2 1/2" up to 6" in diameter are perfect to swing these gates, with the larger 6" post adding that look and feel of "solid". The gates themselves are fairly inexpensive but make a great barrier to unwanted traffic. Chain and lock or add a automatic gate opener for easy access.
Galvanized tubular gates mounted on 6 inch round post with a solar powered gate opener, wireless keypad, exit sensor, installed - cost $4500.00 for a single and $4950.00 for a double.
Rural Driveway Gates / Wood
The Horizontal Board Fence is very popular and we build many wood driveway gates to accommodate that style.
A wood gate requires a steel frame to prevent twisting and warping, to provide strong hinge mounts and a solid anchorage to attach the gate opener motors.
North Georgia Gate uses strong 4 inch square steel gate post, then we weld together a steel gate frame to create a solid foundation onto which we securely fasten the “wood features” and the automation equipment - insuring a beautiful, long lasting, entry gate.
Custom Rural Wood Driveway Gates that match a wood fence style, when built correctly, are solid and durable and they will not sag, twist, or warp.
