The installation of gates and side panels give your property additional security.

Gates are fitted with suitable hinges which will vary based on the type and weight of the gate.  The latch and bolt is also provided so all you will need to add is the padlock.

There is a wide range of gates available including field and ranch gates

Gates be made to any size required but standard gate is generally 36 inches wide (3ft) by 6ft high.

Below is a sample of gate installations carried out and if you scroll down to the bottom of the page you will find a range of gate designs available. 

Frances of Cromford asked us to make bespoke driveway gates (15ft wide) as well as a 4ft wide side gate so that she could securely store her caravan. 

The fully framed closeboard gated were very heavy so we included sprung wheels.

Area before:


Mrs Haynes of Allestree asked us to install a new 6ft 6inch tongue & groove gate and side panel for additional security at her child-minding business :


Maria of Chellaston asked us to remove her existing wrought iron gates and install bespoke closeboard gates.  This made the area very private and secure.

We also replaced the existing fence which was in poor condition.



Peter of Allestree asked us to make him some replacement tongue and groove gates.  The gates were quite heavy so we included a heavy-duty wheel to reduce the pressure on the post.



Mrs Maunder of Darley Abbey had a 12ft and 4ft ranch gates fitted.


Mrs parker of Mickleover had three gates fitted.

Mr Preston of Derby had fencing installed and also asked us to install new driveway gates. He preferred to be able to see through the top section of the gates so chose a design that would allow this.  The gates, as all driveway gates are, were made to measure.


Mr Newsham of Allestree had these flat-top tongue and groove gates installed.

Before:                              After:


Mr & Mrs Bramley had an open entrance to the rear garden in Belper, Derbyshire and wanted to increase security.
