  • Looking for some driveway gate ideas

    I am looking for some driveway gate ideas. If anyone has any they would care to share Id like to see them. Anything from basic to extensive, maybe able to merge them together in some way. Also has anyone ordered from King's metals?

    King Metals is legit

    Search Google Images "Driveway Gate" "Iron driveway gate"

    you'll get some good ideas from that type of search also

      Here is what I did to make my two driveway gates.
      A bit of a sunburst pattern made of thin wall tubing.
      Each side weighs 107 lbs, so they are pretty light.
      The posts are 3 inch 1/8 inch wall tubing set in A LOT of concrete.

          Simple and very nice. I expected some with the curved top rail. Disconnected did you plasma cut the design yourself or ... If not where can it be found and what kinda price tag does it have?

              I have used King Metals several times and like them for the most part. Last time I called and had some questions the sales lady was kind of pissy, but their prices and selection are good.

                King Metals are great. If you have any problems with their staff, contact Kathy Speaks, she's the sales mgr and she will handle it. They are very committed to servicing their clients.
