Weatherproof your Gates

Cold weather, particularly conditions such as frost and snow, can cause wrought iron gates to corrode. Ensuring the upkeep of your gates can be simple and here are a few tips to help you maintain the look of your driveway gates.

Metal Gates Chalfont St Peter

To protect against corrosion you can paint them, galvanise them or powder coat them to ensure your gates continue to look good. It is good to be aware that if you live by the sea or roads that are frequently salted, wrought iron gates have an increased chance of corrosion so that is why we advise weatherproofing using one of the following methods to protect them.

Paint your Gates

Painting them will help to hide blemishes and signs of rusting. However, over time paint can flake away, so if you decide to protect your gates using this method you will need to be mindful of how regularly your gates will need to be maintained to keep them protected.

Galvanise your Gates

Galvanising your gates offers longer term protection, which reduces the need to continually paint your gates. By coating your gate with molten zinc, your gates are enhanced with a non-corrosive protective layer that should last for about 25 years. Galvanisation leaves your gate with a silver finish, which might not be to everyone’s taste, if that’s the case powder coating could be the option for you.

Powder Coat your Gates

Powder coating your gates provides the opportunity to add colour to the metal surface of your gates. The process itself involves baking dry powder onto the galvanised surface in a factory. The process provides an added layer of protection and removes the need to continually repaint your gates.

Metal Driveway Gate Installation

Choosing to automate your metal gates can make life more convenient. However, it is possible for metal gates to be installed and then automated at a later date.

Metal Gates

At GateKraft, we design, manufacture and install metal driveway gates, with or without automation to enhance the security of your home and protect your family and property.

Metal gates are perfect for keeping unwanted intruders out, from opportunist burglars to wild animals that can cause destruction within the grounds of your property. To enhance security it is possible for gates to be lockable with the inclusion of an integrated locking system. This provides the ability for pass code and intercom entry to gain access to your property or remote control access from the comfort of your car or home.

There’s no need to worry about metal becoming weathered, as these can be weatherproofed by galvanising them and then applying a waterproof coating.
