Although solid metal gates made from wrought iron may well be attractive, they'll also require a lot more maintenance and cost more upfront. This is due to the fact that wrought iron is a lot heavier and therefore more expensive to produce, deliver, and install. Plus, iron is more susceptible than aluminium to rust and corrosion.
For a budget-friendly yet long-lasting alternative, aluminium driveway gates and garden gates offer the same level of style and privacy at a fraction of the cost.
Our Valencia double swing driveway gates start at just £599 for the 300x158cm model.
Despite being so lightweight, reinforced aluminium has a high strength to weight ratio. This means that you'll get the benefits of strong metal gates with many more benefits like them being lightweight (and therefore easy on electric openers), more modern in style, and weather resistant.
Our BillyOh aluminium gates are competitively priced and well-built. With black powder coating and a 1-year manufacturer's guarantee, we can offer aluminium gates that are lightweight yet sturdy, durable, quickly delivered, and easily installed.
What's not to like?
At Garden Buildings Direct, we're strong advocates for swing driveway gates over sliding driveway gates. This is because sliding driveway gates are much lower maintenance and won't require any extra installation costs or usage area. In contrast, swing aluminium gates only use the area of your driveway that you'll already be backing into.
Our BillyOh metal gates come ready-protected with black powder-coating. The electrostatically charged paint on your aluminium gates will protect them against rust and corrosion. Our gates come complete with a 1-year manufacturer guarantee.
