Why do our Metal Driveway Gates vary so Much in Price?

Within our large selection of standard designs we have some great value entry level driveway gates starting in price from just £197.00 including VAT through to £1500.00 including VAT for our heavy duty wrought iron designs. Whilst this is a large price difference the main reasons for such a large fluctuation in the price is down to the size of the opening you need to span and the specification of the steel used to make up the gates.

For example our cheap metal gate designs such as the Classic and Regent are manufactured using 10mm infill bars and 20mm x 6mm frames therefore cannot span openings larger the 10ft and do not have the same levels of strength and rigidity as our heavier duty designs such as the Talisman and Ascot which feature 40mm x 30mm hanging styles, 40mm x 10mm closing stiles and 16mm infill bars. As such these designs can span openings up to 16ft (in a standard size) and upto 20ft (in a made to measure size).

Our Favourite Driveway Gate Projects

Listed below are a few examples gates we have supplied to customers over the last year. As you can see they have been successfully installed on a DIY basis and thanks to our help and advice have fitted perfectly. 

Case Study 1: Bi-Folding Gates (Aberdeen)

Description: The customer project involved the supply of bespoke bi folding gates and posts to help secure the entrance of a large driveway.

Client Brief: Our customer came to us with a need to secure the entrance to their property but had limited space on the driveway for the gates to swing back onto. A further issue was that when accessing the property, cars have to come in on an angle which makes parking pretty tight on occasion.

Our Solution: After an initial conversation with the customer as to what solution would work best we were provided with a photo of the entrance to get a better understanding of the requirements. On viewing this it was instantly recommended that a set of made to measure bi folding gates would offer security, ease of access and reduce the amount of space required for them to open and close thus keeping parking issues to a minimum. Furthermore, due to the size of the opening we recommended that the gates be upgraded in specification (using box section steel frames) so that they do not sag under their own weight. 

What the customer said: “Thank you for the exceptional value gates you recently supplied. They are fantastic”.



Case Study 2: Hampton Driveway Gates (Essex)

Description: This customer project required made to measure heavy duty driveway gates that would have an imposing appearance to help keep the main vehicle entrance safe from trespassers.

Client Brief: The property owner had a requirement to secure the driveway as they were concerned about who could access the drive without being seen from the house (as it is set back from the entrance). They did not require metal posts to be installed because the brick pillars at each side of the drive were in good order and capable of taking the weight of the gates.

Our Solution: Once measurements of the opening were provided we discussed the options available to the property owner and explained the designs that would work best it was felt Hampton design offered the best all round performance for the available budget. Furthermore, as the customer did not want to paint the gates themselves they were supplied fully finished with zinc plated (electro galvanised) and black powder coated paint allowing for faster installation and an increased lifespan.



Help & Advice Buying Metal Driveway Gates Online

Here at Metal Gates Direct we appreciate that purchasing a new set of gates is not an everyday occurrence for the average homeowner and as such we have tried to provide you with as much information as possible to allow you to get a complete understanding of our range of products.

With this in mind, please refer to the links below for further information. Alternatively if the answers you are looking for are not covered email

Easy DIY Installation

Our metal driveway gates are simple to install and can be mounted to a variety of surfaces including brick, concrete and stone pillars as well as metal or timber posts. For simple installations you will require nothing more than a few basic DIY tools to successfully complete the fitting process which takes around 1 hour.

Please be aware that when choosing to install the gates on a DIY basis, many our designs are very heavy and as such can place strain on the mounting surface. We therefore recommend that if the brickwork is old, crumbly or not vertical you should install metal posts to provide adequate support.

Driveway Constraints

Before you commit to ordering new gates it is recommended that you check to ensure no obstructions will be present that may hinder the correct operation of them. With this in mind consider the following points.

  • Does the driveway slope upwards towards the house?
  • What is the length of driveway in relation to swinging radius?
  • Will adjacent wall stop the gate opening fully?
  • Do you need the gates to swing wider than 90 degrees?

If the answer is yes to any of these questions and you cannot find a workaround solution from the standard products listed online please get in touch as in most cases are able to offer solutions to your installation problems.

Gate Design

Within our wide range of metal gates for the driveway we have lots of different design options for you to choose from however if you are unsure what style will best suit your property refer to your house type detailed below for ideas.

Modern Properties: Many new build properties lack significant architectural features and as a result our most simple designs such as the Manor, Saxon, Marlborough and Verona design will work extremely well.

Period Style Homes: If your home can be traced to a particular architectural period then choosing a set of gates that reflect this time in history is a great way enhancing the look of your home. In terms of our designs we think the Edinburgh, Stirling, Regent and Winchester styles will all look great.
