Styles and Types:

Here at IC Control we work with some of the best manufacturers of wooden and wrought iron gates, producing ornate, stylised and functional gates for a range of driveways and properties.

If you are unsure of what style or type of gate that would be best for you, below are a few points in relation to Soft Wood, Hard Wood and Wrought Iron solutions.

SOFT WOOD:  One of the more versatile and cost effective solutions for your gate needs. Soft wood gates are generally cheaper than Hard wood and Wrought Iron gates, but this does not mean that they lack style or strength. We utilise a range of softwoods to produce our gates, Scandinavian Redwood (Pine) and Cedar offer fantastic durability when treated and can be made into a range of styles to suit all budgets.

Softwood does need to be treated at least twice a year in order to maintain its integrity.

HARD WOOD: Hard wood gates are highly recommended when looking for a wooden gate option. Woods such as Oak, Iroko, Sapele and Idigbo give you a long lasting gate with little maintenance required. Hardwood gates typically last for a minimum of 30-35 years and if treated can last a lot longer. Although these gates are usually heavier in construction, automation remains the same as softwood and we can integrate any style of motors and automation to suit.

WROUGHT IRON: Wrought Iron gates lend themselves to be highly styled and ornate if required. Working with our blacksmiths and Iron workers we are able to create stunning large gates pieces, intricate railings or iron framed composite gates. We are also capable of renovating and automating existing iron gates. This works extremely well for listed properties, helping redevelopments keep to the required standards. Our iron gate are unique, so therefore if you are looking for this style we will always look to speak to you and get an idea of the style and look you require. 

METAL FRAMED COMPOSITE CLAD: Composite gates offer the option of durability, in a lightweight design. These gates are predominantly maintenance free and can be made in a range of colors and designs, offering a unique driveway look. These can be manufactured from wrought iron, stainless steel and Aluminium to give even more of a stylised look to your property.

METAL FRAMED WOODEN CLAD: Similar to the composite gates, but utilising hard wood for the clad effect. These offer the best of both worlds, utilising iron, steel or aluminium for framing and then the rustic, warmness of wood in order to give a stunning entrance way to any property.

Below are a few styles of gates we have installed and automated over the years, a mix of hard and softwood, with also our wrought iron and steel capabilities.

More pictures of our work are always available and updated on here when we get time to upload. Please call us if you would like to discuss or know more about our gates and automation services.
