  • Post category:General

SL Wrought Iron has been crafting and supplying high-quality metal gates for over 30 years. Our factory is located in the heart of Lancashire, and our expert craftspeople use the finest mild steel to create gates that provide both security and aesthetic appeal for your home or business. Whether you’re looking to bolster the security of your home or business or you’re simply looking to give your space a stylish exterior, our mild steel gates are a reliable and elegant choice. Let’s take a look at some of the key advantages of adding driveway gates to your property.

Enjoy peace of mind with enhanced security

Our mild steel gates offer an additional level of security when compared to wooden gates. The robust steel provides security by keeping unauthorised vehicles and people from entering your property. Our gates are also very difficult to break through, lift, or remove once they’ve been installed. They provide peace of mind for the safety of your belongings and family members in your absence. Plus, these days, automatic gates are more popular than ever, giving you the option to further enhance the security of your driveway gates with advanced features such as automation and facial recognition intercoms. With these added features, you can even control and monitor access to your property at a distance with just a simple touch.

Boost your kerb appeal with our stunning selection

A driveway gate can significantly enhance your property’s curb appeal (which basically means how visually appealing it is from the outside). This is particularly important if you’re considering selling your house in the future. With our ranges at SL Wrought Iron, you’ll be able to match the architectural style of your home or business’s exterior perfectly, from stunning and ornate traditional models like Ribchester to sleek modern options like our Whalley range.

When selecting a gate, choose one that enhances your property’s visual appeal, and if you’re looking to make a comprehensive stylistic statement, then why not consider the matching railings, available in full length or as wall-top railings, to further the aesthetic of your new driveway gate? We can hand make your gate and railings to your driveways extra measurements – and often at no additional charge, so when they’re installed, they’re nothing short of stunning.

Effortlessly add value to your home or business

As we touched on in the previous point, wrought iron gates, or, should we say, mild steel gates, can significantly enhance your home’s value by boosting its security and aesthetic appeal, which are fundamental aspects for potential buyers. High-quality fixtures like these elevate a property’s perceived value, making it seem more premium and desirable.

Also, our gates and railings are low-maintenance, offering durability and ease of care, which is attractive to buyers who want to avoid frequent upkeep. A gated driveway sets your property apart from others in the area, making it more appealing to prospective buyers. We actually have an entire blog on how our gates can boost your property’s value if you want to take a look!

Customise your gate to suit your space

At SL Wrought Iron, we pride ourselves on creating bespoke gates tailored to your specific measurements and preferences. Our gates are crafted from durable mild steel, designed to withstand the test of time while maintaining their aesthetic appeal. This durability ensures that your investment will continue to provide value and security for many years. And with our galvanisation process, you’ll never have to worry about rust or painting your gate. To keep it looking its best, all you need to do is wipe it down as and when it needs it with warm, soapy water. Or, if you’d prefer to paint your own driveway gate, we can skip the galvanisation process. However, it’s worth bearing in mind that non-galvanised gates will require more upkeep.

At SL Wrought Iron, we have years of experience creating bespoke and handcrafted metal gates, and we’re dedicated to providing long-lasting value. Feel free to explore the selection right here on our site, and if you have any questions or need advice, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 01254 236994. We are always happy to assist in any way we can!
