Aluminium driveway gates have a number of benefits over alternative gate construction materials including:
•Aluminium gates are much lighter than iron, steel and wood
•Aluminium gates do not rot like wood
•Aluminium does not flex, expand and contract or warp like wood
•Aluminium does not have a moisture content like wood
•Aluminium gates do not corrode like steel and iron
•Aluminium gates parts can be easily cut to shape
•Aluminium gates can be coated with a variety of finishes including wood-grain
•Aluminium is easily extruded to form the components of aluminium gates
•Aluminium gates can easily be assembled by bolting , bonding or welding
•Aluminium gates can be kept looking like new simply by wiping them down with a damp cloth periodically
Aluminium is an essential part of our lives and is used in everything from drinks cans to aeroplanes. Its use in gate installation and automation means that home-owners can benefit from its corrosion resistance and light weight without having to restrict their choice of style or finish.
The StarGate range of Aluminium driveway gates are strong, beautiful and free from rot or rust.
Aluminium is one of nature’s miracle materials. It is light, easy to cut and shape, can be welded, bonded, riveted or bolted together and it provides years of low to no maintenance in all weathers.
Aluminium driveway gates are constructed from extruded sections of aluminium that are contoured to perfectly mimic the wooden or wrought iron elements used to build wood or iron gates. These are then assembled so that they match the finished construction of a wooden or iron gate as closely as possible.
This means that our aluminium gates look incredibly like wooden and iron gates but that they can also be repaired easily by removing and replacing damaged sections.
