Ironcraft are now pleased to be able to offer a range of aluminium gates – constructed from sections that are precision cut, and joined in much the same way as their wooden gate counterparts. This means that they look much like wood but without the disadvantages that come with the natural material.
This blog highlights the top five advantages of installing our aluminium gates for your home...
Our selection of aluminium driveway gates reflects the most popular styles of traditional wooden ones – with a choice of either swing or sliding mechanisms. As with our wrought iron range, they come in a variety of styles – 21, to be exact!
We also offer a selection of pedestrian gates to compliment any home, with the added peace of mind that they can be supplied with the unrivalled Locinox Sixtylock. Infill panels and fences to secure the perimeter of your property can also be ordered and manufactured to your exact specification.
Each gate that we supply is CE certified, meaning it has been tested to withstand critical aspects such as wind loading and operating forces. CE certification not only guarantees longevity, but also supports the environment by ensuring no hazardous substances are used in production.
We take safety very seriously and are accredited by a number of leading health and safety constructions and gate safety organisations. We are proud that our aluminium gates are safe for our customers.
3.Bespoke sizes and finish
Each of our aluminium gates can be manufactured to your bespoke size and specification, catering for every home. We guarantee our gates are manufactured to the highest standards that will be the perfect entrance to your home for years to come.
The added benefits include a choice of colour, with an extensive selection of wood grain finishes that are highly realistic, without the disadvantages of wood. Our aluminium pedestrian gates also come with a choice of handles and cover plates, in a range of finishes and colours.
The great benefit of aluminium gates over wood is that the maintenance couldn’t be easier – you only really need to wipe them down with soapy water to keep them looking brand new. There's no need for treatments and there won't be any movement, swelling or contracting.
All of our aluminium gates are powder coated in a quali-coat marine grade finish, ensuring there will never be an issue with fading or flaking. There's no need to worry about rust, either, as the metal is galvanised and comes with a 10-year guarantee against rust.

5.Compatible with automation
Automation can be added to any of the driveway gates we manufacture. The convenience of being able to open and close gates with remote control, rather than manually, is a great advantage at night and in bad weather. Automation also means avoiding struggling with large or heavy gates.
We understand the importance of ensuring your home is safe and secure. Automation boasts an extra safety feature, with intercoms installed at the gates to prevent unwanted callers. They also have irreversibly geared motors, which make it difficult for gates to be forced open.
