Materials and Components Used:
Aluminium Swing Gate Frames up to 2m per leaf are made from 40mm square section with 3mm wall thickness a 25mm x 25mm tension brace and 1.6mm wall thickness. Swing Gate Frames between 2m and 3m wide per leaf are made from 50mm square SHS Aluminium with 3mm wall thickness and a 25mm square tension brace with 1.6mm wall thickness. Frames larger than this use a size of material depending on how stiff you want the gate and budget, we can design the gate to suit.
There is a vertical centre support made from 25mm x 25mm x 3mm wall thickness every 2m or so and if higher than 1.2m also have a middle rail the same material as the top rail.
Pricing above that includes the fitting of pickets use 100mm x 16mm flat top treated pine pickets. Other pickets can be used for a little more.
All Aluminium frames are welded, dressed and unpainted because aluminium doesn't rust like steel. You could paint the frame yourself or have it powder coated.
When painting an aluminium frame use an "Etch" primer first so the paint will stick. If you just paint it will fence paint it is more than likely to peal off. If you sand the frame with 80 grit sand paper first this will also help the paint stick.
Steel frames are made from Duragal, which is steel that is already hot dip galvanised and where welded is painted with gal paint.
The timber pickets are treated pine unpainted, you could paint these yourself.
