Introducing the steel gates range from AGD Systems. Traditionally known as wrought iron gates, nowadays most modern gates are in fact made from steel and occasionally from cast iron. This is due to a number of reasons.
Primarily, iron or steel are very strong, and they helps to keep the gate sturdy and reliable, as well as helping to protect your area from intruders. Alongside this, it has a strong aesthetic, that looks good on a range of properties from modern gated properties to older grand country houses. The way in which iron gates are constructed mean that that they are largely see through, providing a welcoming and grand entrance, with vision of the driveway ahead.
There are still a few small forges skilled in the art of crafting old style wrought iron gate designs, AGD Systems can assist you in specifying gates suitable for adding our automation kits and access controls.
Our electric steel gates can be installed as 'Stand Alone' (to stand alone steel posts) or to Stone or brick piers with built-in steel reinforcements (RHS or RSJ steels).
Aluminium gates are fabricated from extruded aluminium sections in a wide range of design styles.
Our standard and bespoke steel swing gates are manufactured to the highest standards by an established local gate fabricator.
Our steel gates are beautifully crafted and once fully welded and assembled they are cold galvanised to prevent future corrosion, which should give you total peace of mind when it comes to ongoing maintenance.
The gates usually receive a satin black spray paint topcoat finish, special colours are available upon request – please supply the RAL or BS colour reference number/description if required.
Finals can be left black of highlighted by a process called pagination, this dry brush process subtly finishes the finials in gold, silver, bronze, or Verdigris highlights.
