Why choose an aluminium gate?
Aluminium as a raw material is generally more expensive than steel but because aluminium has outstanding strength and durability, a gate made in aluminium will last you far longer. So, whilst it is an investment it will have a longer lifespan than a traditional wooden or steel gate, it won’t need any maintenance and because it is lighter than steel or wood there will be less stress on your automation so that should last you longer too.
Choosing an aluminium gate
Aluminium gates are an increasingly popular choice, but with so many options available, how do you choose? Like any type of gate, aluminium gate prices vary considerably depending on a number of factors.
There are many types of aluminium gates available from bolted, welded and bolted, bonded and bolted to fully welded gates. A bolted gate will cost less than a fully welded gate because of the manufacturing process, it also isn’t as strong.
The thickness of the profile used to make the gates will also impact on price. A thicker profile means more aluminium and therefore a higher price, but also a stronger and more robust gate.
Alugate’s Managing Director, Stewart Phillips, explains:
‘When buying an aluminium gate, the saying ‘you get what you pay for’ really does resonate. If you want an aluminium gate that will last a lifetime, then a fully welded gate with a 3mm profile is the perfect choice.
That’s why all Alugate welded aluminium gates use 3mm aluminium profiles, so they are extremely strong which allows us to be able to manufacture larger gates – up to a 10m opening on swing gates and 8m on a sliding gate. From pedestrian gates, double or single swing gates, to track or cantilever sliding gates, bi-folding or telescopic gates – we’ve got a gate to suit all entrances! With a 10-year warranty, an aluminium gate from Alugate will stand the test of time.’
Alugate fully welded aluminium gates are a superior choice offering a lightweight, strong, durable and low maintenance option…but above all beautiful gates.
