Our metal wood-lined driveway gates are constructed from extremely robust galvanised frames which are then powder coated in your choice of standard colour and lined or overlaid with your choice of wood. This style of gate offers you the privacy of a close-boarded gate as well as the durability and strength that a non-rusting, metal frame construction brings. We are able to offer many varieties of wood for this design of gate, all in a robust 20mm thick tongue and groove. 

The choices range from a Scandinavian softwood which is ready to accept paint or stain, to Fraké, a semi-hardwood that has been thermally modified to have high water repelling properties, which reduces expansion and contraction - issues inherent with normal wood - to a minimum. This means Fraké does not require any further treatment, however a clear or coloured UV protector or wood stain is recommended to prevent discolouration and silvering.

We also have the choice of synthetic wood, which is made from a recycled composite material and as such, benefits from a very long life span and a virtually maintenance free finish alongside the galvanised metalwork.

Metal wood-lined driveway gates are available in a range of shapes and styles.

We can also incorporate wrought iron detailing if you desire. When choosing wood as a material for a gate, it is important to remember that as wood is a natural product, movement, swelling and contracting are normal occurrences. All timbers have natural marks such as knots, shakes and resin pockets and although these will be kept to a minimum in the finished product, some are unavoidable. However, all of the metal frames are galvanised, which means they come with a 10 year guarantee against rust.

"As an engineer of many years, I have a keen eye for precision and found your product quality excellent, complimented by the installation that was performed by a polite and efficient team.”
