Wrought Iron Country Gates
The 'Eleanor' was the first of our
wrought iron entrance gates and is made mainly of flat
steel as were many of the earlier blacksmithed heritage farm gates of
mid to late 1800's. The 'Estate' gate is the latest design to join our
stable of wrought iron gates and it's design is influenced by the old
estate gates. These
gates can be left raw and allowed to rust giving an aged appearance or
be powder coated. These styles particularly suit Federation and
Victorian era homes and cottages.
Cast Jointed Gates
gates are replicas of the old Simpson gates (made in South Australia)
or Sunshine McKay Gates (made in Victoria) that were made around the
turn of the last century. The ornamental circular centre disc is the
closest to the Sunshine McKay gates but both mouldings are probably
from the Simpson gates.
Gates are welded using a special welding technique that bonds mild
steel to cast iron.
Knuckles can be decorative or
plain, and there are two centres available:

round disc with ornamental detail (pictured
The cast jointed gates are quite heavy in comparison to the other
Farmweld metal pipe gates as the joints are solid cast iron and the rails are made
from much heavier pipe.
