Made to Measure Saxon Metal Garden Gate in North London | Case Study

Made to Measure Saxon Metal Garden Gate in North London

If you are looking to improve security to the front entrance of your property when it is accessed directly from a busy road, a metal garden gate is an excellent choice. In this case study we share the experience of a customer who selected to purchase a made to measure 6ft high metal gate. Our made to measure service is a popular option for customers who have found a design they like but have not been able to find an appropriate size option online.


With an increase in pedestrians walking past the customers property in north London, they had come to the decision that a physical security barrier at the front entrance would keep people off the front path. After researching various gate suppliers, they had a recommendation from a neighbour to look at the Metal Gates Direct website. This was due to our extensive range of stylish and secure metal gates available.

Product Selection

In order to match the properties existing architectural style, the customer was looking for a gate design that would be sympathetic to its overall style and although the customer liked many of our gate design, it was felt that the most appropriate solution would be one that features an arched top and fleur-de-lys finials as it would complement the properties existing elegant and classic design features.

Design and Finish

We understand that purchasing a gate is not an everyday occurrence and, in many cases, can seem daunting. However, after taking our advice, the customer selected our Saxon Metal Side Gate with a zinc plated (electro galvanised) and black powder coated paint finish as it met their requirements for the following reasons.

  • The timeless design blends with the period property.

  • A solid steel construction is strong and durable.

  • The shallow arched top rail complements the ornate copings on the pillars and draws the eye to the arch top front door opening.

  • Fluer-de-lys finals create an imposing appearance.

  • The dog bars fitted into the bottom half of the gate would keep animals from accessing the front garden.


Ensuring a gate is the correct size is essential. After measuring the garden entrance, the customer provided us with the size needed and at this point it was apparent that a made to measure gate would be required as it was wider than any of our standard width options.

End Results and Customer Satisfaction

After completing the installation, the property owner was delighted with the final result and felt that it matched their requirements perfectly. The gate's classic design and black finish complemented the entrances existing features, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the property's exterior.


For homeowners looking to enhance their garden security, purchasing a metal garden gate from Metal Gates Direct can be a convenient and stress-free experience and we think you will agree that the end results look great.
