Making custom gates is what we do, not only tailoring the length so the gate fits well, but also offering custom gate styles. Gate manufacturers put out the same styles quickly, cheaply and in bulk. Their aim is to make quick money. Quality is no longer important. Redundancy is the game, forcing people like you to replace your gates often. In a world where waste is at record highs, Farmweld is bucking this trend.
Till recently, the Daylesford gate has only been available as a custom designed farm gate. Due to it’s popularity, we have decided to include it as a standard design under the bar gates collection, in the heritage style country gates range. Modeled on the entrance gate to the historic ‘Wombat Park Estate’, in Daylesford, Victoria the gate is:
Gates are not just for keeping people and animals out, but also for keeping our precious children and pets in. Usually for their own safety. Pet friendly gates don’t have to be boring and unattractive, but they should be safe. Most dog safe gates are usually plain, with vertical bars. However a simple embellishment may be more than enough to take a plain, boring gate up a notch to something quite elegant. This was our solution to one customer’s problem.
It was time to replace a old ‘bodgy’ fitting gate with something that would complement and grace the entrance to this lovely country property. Alternative access to an adjoining paddock was also needed, so a smaller, matching gate was the answer. Clients are quite often worried that gates won’t fit, especially when ordering from interstate. However so long as we know the distance between your posts, ie the gap, your gate will be made to fit perfectly. The customers were rapt with the outcome and this is what they had to say…
The old Australian cast jointed farm gates from the turn of the 20th century are harder to find but as popular as ever due to the nostalgia around owning a heritage gate like those on our grandparents and great-grandparents old farms. Demand for old gates for sale has pushed prices quite high despite them being in really bad condition. We are often asked about restoring old gates but quite often the old “drag & drop gates” as they were once known, are not economically viable to fix. The bottom bars are
The purchase of a new gate usually gives rise to a few questions. The most common concerns are whether a new gate will fit; how much it will cost to get it delivered – especially if it’s coming from interstate and thirdly how long it will take to get it. This video address all those concerns and more. I hope it helps you too …
Our gates are absolutely gorgeous – thank you! They’ve turned out exactly as we had imagined them (if not better) and we couldn’t be happier with the result.
Thanks again for all your help in developing the design, and for the outstanding workmanship of the end product – we’ll be referring people your way without hesitation.
We are delighted with the gates, we love the design and my husband loves the robust construction. I can’t tell you how many people have asked about it and we happily refer them back to you!
I just wanted to send this quick email to say a huge thankyou for all your patience and help with me in deciding on our railway gates. They fit perfectly and the kids love opening and shutting them each day. They are also successfully keeping the dog in as well. I am sending through some photos of the gates with this email too.
Farmweld understood exactly what we wanted and came up with this design that needed no alteration. The gate and panels are really well made and look fantastic at the start of our drive. We have received many positive comments from friends and neighbours. We recommend Farmweld to anyone who wants to have gates or panels made for a special area around their home or farm.
