Timber Gates

To complement any fence or entry, in particular our wonderful Post and Rail fences, we offer several types of impressive gates. Choose from our magnificent solid timber gates or select a traditional cast iron style Sunshine McKay heritage gate. All gates are individually made lovingly by craftspeople in Victoria. And all of our gates ooze style and class, and will last you a lifetime.

Our timber gates come in a range of standard sizes but we can provide a replacement service too, if you so need. Note that all our gates come complete with all hardware including extra long hinge bolts, but if your existing gate posts are huge in diameter, simply chainsaw recesses as necessary to accommodate the nut and washer.

We can even make bespoke gates that are a structural hybrid of timber and steel.

If you require an Entrance set, please send us your drawings. We can make almost anything. For example we can mortise posts at 45 degree angles and can also supply extra high gate posts if you want something absolutely unique.

Maintenance

Good building practice requires that all freshly cut surfaces have an application of a water repellent preservative. End-grains require particular attention, especially post tops.

On all timber to be painted, ends in particular, are to be primed with a compatible primer. If painting, light coloured paint will last longer.

All exposed, uncoated external timbers will tend to oxidise to a silvery grey colour, the degree and rate of greying dependent upon the exposure level of each element to sun, wind and rain. Although Golden Cypress has its own natural durability when used in conjunction with good building practices, we suggest using a high quality penetrating oil with effective fungicidal properties and re-coating according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Should you want a quick and even greying effect, your paint supplier should be able to add a grey tint for you.

Should you want to want to bring the natural colour back from grey,  oxalic acid has proven effective.

Regardless of what you choose, always refer to the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Some customers have suggested these options:

  • Cutek as a preservative
  • Wattyl Exterior Deck Teak Tallow – its tint colour closely matches the colour of fresh-sawn Golden Cypress
  • Livos products (for the health conscious)
  • Feast Watson make a “Grey Look Deck” product.

Although some products require more frequent re-coating , you should also factor in the ease of re-coating.
