Galvanized Garden Gates

Galvanized garden gates not only give your garden a great first impression, but adds extra coverage which increases your homes privacy.

Galvanized garden gates surround your garden allowing your space to be known and your children and pets are kept safely behind the gates so you don’t have to worry about them when they are outside playing. Garden gates can come in all sorts of styles from modern and simplistic to grand and ornate Georgian styles.

Georgian Style Gates

The prominent design of Georgian is Palladianism, which is based on ancient Roman architecture. The Georgian era was so long that it is usually split into early, mid late stages. Georgian gates are simplistic, symmetry, show prestige and stability.

Modern style gates

Early modern architecture began at the turn of the 20th century. Modern design is simplistic, eye-catching and can look exquisite when matched with a modern house.

Galvanizing your garden gate

Galvanizing your garden gate is essential if you are wanting to keep your gate safe from the effects of weather (which will encourage a gate to rust), galvanizing a gate can also decreases and sometimes prevent accidental damage.

Galvanizing is the process of coating iron and steel with a thin layer of zinc by passing it through a molten bath at a temperature of 460°C. When exposed to this atmosphere, the zinc reacts with oxygen to form zinc oxide, which then reacts further with carbon dioxide to form zinc carbonate. Only metal gates can be galvanized, if  you are choosing a wooden garden gate, you will have to apply a protective weather proof paint coating to your wooden gate each year to prevent weathering.
