Farm gates with wrought iron

The ‘Eleanor’ was the first of our wrought iron driveway farm gates. The matching personal access gate has become one of the most popular garden gate designs. Made with flat steel bars, it resembles the earlier blacksmithed heritage farm gates of the mid to late 1800′s.

The ‘Daylesford‘ is the most recent addition to the range of wrought iron farm gates. It has been modelled on the gate which graces the heritage property ‘Wombat Park’, in Daylesford, Victoria.

The ‘Estate’ gate is based on old style English estate gates popular in the UK.

You can order these steel gates either unpainted so they’ll rust to an aged look, or powder coated. The wrought iron detail on these gates suit Federation and Victorian era homes and cottages.

Cast Jointed Gates

Cast Jointed farm gates were common during the early part of the 20th century. Known today as ‘Sunshine gates’, many foundries, now long gone, made and sold these farm gates.  Simpson was a South Australian company. Victoria’s Sunshine McKay factory made the most well known ‘Sunshine gate’. It’s name is mainly remembered today as it’s cast into the centre of remaining old farm gates. Sunshine McKay gates are also known as ‘drag & drop gates’ because they were so heavy they often ended up on the ground. The Cyclone factory also made cast jointed farm gates. They had factories in most states from where they would sell gates Australia-wide.

Cast jointed gates are near double the weight of our other gates. Each casting weighs approximately 2kg. We use a special welding technique that bonds mild steel to cast iron.

The ornamental circular centre disc is the closest to the Sunshine McKay gates. The castings are from original old gates. But it’s uncertain whether they’re from the Sunshine McKay or Simpson gates.

Knuckles can be decorative or plain, and there are two centres available.

Construction: Heavy walled pipe, flat steel bracing and cast iron. They are hard to tell apart from the authentic gates. These gates are traditionally made to be hung from timber posts and come with bolt through hinges.
Finish: Powder coated only.
Height: 1150mm tall to the top rail.
Sizes: 1.2m to 3.5m (for 3.6m gap). These gates cannot be made any longer due to their weight.
Suitable for: Ornamental, they are not suitable around stock. Posts should be well braced to support their weight.
Price Guide: Starting from $2250 – $2900 (price subject to change without notice)


NOTE: We do not recommend bar gates be used around cattle or horses in case they get a leg through the bars and injure themselves.
