Estate Gates with their distinctive crooked high hanging stile and the extended diagonal brace are, as the name implies, more suited to a drive or entrance.
Estate gates have a tapered top bar, with a quality planed finish. All the rails, vertical braces and stiles have detailed edge chamfering. Morticed and tenoned Joints are fixed with traditional hardwood dowels.
The timber used is either specially selected pressure treated slow grown Scandinavian softwood or the very durable African Iroko hardwood which is known for its stability.
Special heights and widths can be ordered.

It should be noted that all wooden gates are susceptible to natural movement or shaking (cracks in the timber) as the timber expands and contracts during the normal weathering process. This is not considered to be a defect unless very severe. We recommend that treated softwood gates are allowed to dry fully before cosmetic treatments are applied. We do not recommend using dark stains or paints as they attract heat which may cause additional movement in the timber.
