Advantages of aluminium gates over wood

For a long time, people considering whether to install new gates opted for wooden ones instead of aluminium, mainly because of the price difference between the two.

That isn’t really an issue anymore.

When you buy an aluminium gate, you truly only need one gate for life.

To start with, like wooden gates, aluminium is available in a bunch of different designs because of its modular construction.

You can choose from classic, contemporary or modern.

In addition, aluminium finishes are also weather-resistant, and you can get them in pretty much any colour you want.

Or, if you prefer something simpler, you can even opt for an aluminium gate with a realistic looking wood finish!

At Stargates, we’re also able to supply aluminium gates in a wide range of different colours with textured finishes.

From red tones to beech or, if you want something that stands out a bit more, we also have solutions featuring two shades.

Aluminium gates are tough and durable, and Stargates’ products are guaranteed for 10 years.

You hardly need worry about looking after them either because they are so robust.

All you need to do is wipe them down every now and then to ensure that they stay looking like new.

Our gates have a tough Qualicoat surface coating that gives the gates their colour, texture or wood-look finish and protects the metal beneath from the elements and corrosion. This means that the material is sealed and protected from any external stressors such as rain.

Unlike wooden alternatives, aluminium gates do not warp, crack, dry out or soak up any water.

This ensures their longevity, meaning you don’t have to worry about replacing them any time soon.

One other issue with wooden gates is, as they change following a few years of use, they risk not opening and closing properly.

Aluminium gates simply aren’t affected in the same way, which makes them ideal for automation.

Because aluminium gates are lightweight and modular, they are not terribly time consuming to install, with the tright tools and know-how.

In summary, with aluminium gates you can count on a low-maintenance, long-lasting and stunning solution that is affordable and won’t leave you having to replace them as quickly.
