Types of Gates
As mentioned, all of our projects are bespoke when it comes to client requests in Dorset. Gates can come in various shapes, sizes, and materials. While the predominant purpose of a gate stays the same, the designs can vary. It is important to note that there are certain types of gates that are better suited to their surroundings. Below, we have outlined the most common kinds of gates used.
In general, driveway gates, Dorset residents, are designed and fabricated as double gates. This means that there are two panels that can be locked and unlocked centrally to provide safe entry and exit for vehicles. The sizing of these gates varies depending on the exterior of the property itself, but they are commonly 3-4ft in height and start at 7ft in width. However, as part of our bespoke service, we can tailor them to your required size.
By coming to our team here at MPR Metal Designs, we can build you gates in Dorset that are fully automated. Thanks to the modern technology that we have at our disposal, we can fabricate driveway gates that open via sensor or a touch of a button.
Garden gates provide another point of entry for homeowners who want to access the property via the garden. They are also ideal for multiple flat owners or renters who have access to an outdoor space on the building’s premises. Our team are experienced in designing and fabricating high quality Dorset gates, using premium metals. Generally, garden gates are designed as a single leaf configuration and they can incorporate additional design elements should you choose to have them.
The main purpose of these gates, Dorset residents, is to provide an additional entry point to residents and also to outline the boundaries of your property.
For additional security, you may want to consider having a side gate installed on your property. These types of gates in Dorset go a long way in deterring potential intruders, particularly if they are built with plenty of height. Our experts can design a single leaf side gate wherever you have a suitable support structure. Depending on the walls either side, we can fabricate a wall that reaches up to 6ft tall.
It is entirely up to you what sort of style you would like your new Dorset gates to be. Aesthetics is important, so feel free to have an open discussion with our experts. If you are unsure about what design would work well, then ask for our advice. We are more than happy to help!
For those of you who own larger homes or run an estate, then you may want to consider implementing grand estate gates. They are similar to driveway gates, Dorset clients, but they are much more grand and provide a higher level of security. With the help of our team, we can design an imposing gate that reflects the style and presence of your building.
