If you are wanting to buy a new metal gate for your property and can`t understand why they vary so much in price, then the following information is designed to help you get a better understanding of the reason for this.

If you are considering installing new metal gates, railings or fence panels and do not have a suitable supporting structure to mount the fittings onto then you will need to purchase metal posts to complete the installation. However, when making your choice it is important to understand the different options including the size required, fixing method and post design. Here we detail the main points to consider.

The majority of gates are the UK are made from steel or wrought iron because they deliver excellent strength, durability and style. The main difference between these two metals is that wrought iron is composed entirely of iron, whereas steel contains an alloy of iron and carbon. The carbon content makes steel gates stronger than wrought iron, withstanding the elements and resisting damage. That said, wrought iron is durable, malleable, corrosion-resistant and easier to weld, so it naturally provides exciting opportunities for intricate or artistic gate designs.

Driveway gates can add security, privacy, elegance and beauty to the exterior of your home, as well as heaps of character and value. Depending on the materials used and how the gate is constructed, you can rely on a driveway gate for many years to come with minimal maintenance required.

For many properties in the UK, the driveway is not only a place for parking a vehicle; it's the main entrance, having a significant impact on the overall look of your property. If you want to make the best first impression on guests, add value to your home and elevate security, a driveway gate can be a wise investment.

As wooden fence panels survive the elements, they can lose their rich colour, meaning your home’s exterior starts to look a little worse for wear. Metal railings are easier to maintain, requiring a good wipe down every once in a while, and they can add to the resale value of your home.

Metal fence panels can elevate your property’s style, standing up well against day-to-day wear and tear, creating a secure boundary that you can count on for many years to come. When compared to wood, metal fences are generally sturdier in extreme weather, lasting for a longer period, but there are plenty of other key benefits worth considering.  

Wrought iron gates have long been praised for creating strong and durable barriers, maximising protection for families, homes and assets. 

In order to provide a better level of security and privacy to your property it is an important fact that pedestrian and driveway access points should have a gate fitted.

A sure way to give your home a fresh new look is with a few tins of paint - colour can really change the ambience of a house and is a great way of reflecting your personality.
