These gates were custom designed and handcrafted by JDR Metal Art for an elk ranch in north central Oklahoma.

We began with the customer’s design concept. After presenting the first draft we made several revisions before finalizing the design exactly how the customer intended.

Elk Gate Design

Once the design was complete we began cutting material. Here we’re cutting some tubing for the gate frame.

Driveway Gates with American Flag & Dogs ThemeCustom Made by JDR Metal Art12′ Single Swing, 6′ Tall

Nationwide Shipping

Buy custom driveway gates handcrafted from steel or aluminum. 

This gate has a 2″ square tubing frame, 1/8″ wall thickness. The gate hinges are adjustable, maintenance-free sealed roller bearings rated for 3000 lbs. We also supplied 6″ square tubing steel posts for this project.

American Flag & Dogs Theme Shipped to Arkansas in October 2018

Sandblasted, zinc rich primer and super durable black powder coat finish baked at 400F. The two-coat system greatly improves the lifespan of the finish, prevents rust from forming beneath the powder coat and even keeps rust from spreading at any scratches that go down to bare metal. Color-matching touchup paint is a great solution to seal any nicks or scratches which seem to inevitably occur during installation.

Custom Gates and SignsFeaturing Alabama Swamp Theme

By JDR Metal Art

Custom gates and signs for Alabama client with a home on the Sipsey River.

According to Wikipedia:

The Sipsey River is a 145-mile-long (233 km)[1] swampy low-lying river in west central Alabama. The Sipsey is surrounded by some exceptional wetland habitat. It originates near Glen Allen, and discharges into the Tombigbee River near Vienna.[2]

The overall theme for the gates and signs was to match the client’s location. Working from pictures of the property, we created scenes to fit a variety of places.

The driveway gate design has both new elements and elements from driveway gates we’ve done in the past.

The signs incorporate some elements from the gates, as well as some new elements.

Boca Raton Driveway Gates

Driveway gates for Boca Raton, Florida horse ranch that are custom built from aluminum by JDR Metal Art.

Aluminum Square Tubing Frame

The frame consists of 2″ square tubing aluminum. The arches are rolled from tubing with 1/8″ wall thickness. The bottom rails, hinge rails and inside vertical rails are all 3/16″ wall thickness.

MIG Welded Aluminum Gates

In the picture below you can (somewhat) see the spool gun used to join the aluminum artwork cutout to the aluminum frame. Since the aluminum wire is so soft it can be fed only a short distance, hence the reason why the spool of welding wire is practically handheld.

Hinge Brackets

1/4″ thick aluminum C-brackets accommodate sealed bearing hinges. A 5/8″ thick grade 8 hardened steel bolt holds the hinges to the gate. Threaded rods protruding from the hinges go through the client’s aluminum posts and provide the means of adjustment to perfectly level the gates and also to adjust the center gap to the desired width (typically 1″).

Custom Ranch Brand

Also plasma cut into the 3/16″ thick aluminum sheet material.

Brushed Aluminum Finish

The powder coat finish will only be as good as the prep job. The entire gate has been brushed using zirconia flapwheels and washed using zirconium oxide cleaner/pretreatment. While both processes ensure long-term adhesion, the zirconium oxide also greatly enhances the corrosion resistance of the aluminum. Being that Boca Raton is a tropical area there will be a great deal of moisture trying to corrode the aluminum so it is imperative to do a great prep job.

Two Stage Powder Coat Finish

A two stage powder coat finish is far superior to the single stage finish offered by many gate manufacturers.

A single stage finish will often be applied too thin and will not “wet out” to fully cover the metal, resulting in pinholes that go clear down to the substrate. Such a finish is prone to be applied unevenly and will appear with a sandpaper texture (“tight orange peel”) while other areas are noticeably much smoother.

A two stage greatly enhances the final appearance of the gates. Powder coat can be applied far more thickly than paint without running or sagging. Minor imperfections in the metal surface that are noticeable after one coat of powder will be gone after the second coat.

First Coat of Powder

The first coat of powder gets electrostatically applied and then the gates get run up to a temperature of 250F in the powder coat oven…there the powder melts and becomes a gel coating. The gates come back out, the gel hardens. The gates look shiny here but will become a matte black after the second coat is applied and cured.

After Top Coat Cured

Now the next coat (the top coat) has been applied, the gates went back in the oven and baked at 400F for around 25-30 minutes. They are now a matte black. The gates are already fully cured and more durable than paint. The “super durable” exterior grade powder coat I use excels at abrasion and chipping resistance, UV fade resistance and corrosion resistance, all of which will be in play from the time of installation in Boca Raton until many years thereafter.

*Some of the pictures appear upside down because the gates are hung upside down to be sprayed.

Bracket for Gate Operator Welded on Backside of Gate

  This rectangular tubing bar was placed on the back of the gate to accommodate an automatic gate opener with articulating arms.

Same bar is in the picture below. The brackets will likely bolt to the bar, which is actually a 2×1 rectangular tube with 1/8″ wall thickness.

High Quality 14 Foot Driveway GateDeer Themed Single Swing Steel with 6×6 Steel Posts

We built this single swing 14 foot steel gate and three posts for a customer in Illinois.

Standing over 6’3″ in the middle, this gate with deer design is very large and weighs nearly 400 lbs.

I added a third hinge socket to give the other two some strain relief…although they didn’t totally need it. All three custom made, high performance hinges utilize sealed roller bearings, bringing the rated capacity to nearly 5000 lbs of force.

The tubing frame is heavy duty 3/16″ walled 2×2 square tubing while the design is cut from 3/16″ steel sheet metal.
