  • Post category:General

Are you looking for the perfect metal gate for your home or business? At SL Wrought Iron, we have just what you need! We offer a wide range of gate styles, the most popular of which are classic and contemporary. Classic gates are perfect to evoke a sense of tradition and historical charm, while contemporary gates are ideal if you prefer modern, clean lines.

To help you choose which may be best for your property, we’ve handpicked some of our favourite gates from each style to help you make an informed decision. Whether you’re looking to add a touch of timeless elegance to your home or create a sleek, modern look for your business, you’ll find everything you need in our stunning ranges.

Embrace the charm of classic gate styles

Traditional metal gates like ours at SL Wrought Iron showcase a classic and timeless aesthetic. The beauty of this style lies within the detail of their often elaborate designs, displaying skilled craftsmanship with intricate scrollwork, decorative twists, and classic patterns such as specific motifs or floral-inspired elements.

Classic gates come in various heights and shapes and serve both as a symbol of security and as an exterior art piece that beautifully complements traditional architecture while also being an equally stylish fit for modern homes. We always recommend opting for a quality galvanised finish, ensuring an attractive appearance, rich black colour and long-lasting durability. Some of our favourite classic gates include:

Ribchester Galvanised Driveway Gate

The Ribchester Galvanised Driveway Gate is characterised by its striking and intricate ornate traditional wrought iron style, which showcases a combination of cages and scroll design elements along with traditional railheads. The resulting look is both timeless and elegant, making it a perfect choice if you appreciate classic design aesthetics.

Clitheroe Driveway Gate

If you’re looking to add a touch of classic character to your home, then our Clitheroe Driveway Gate is the perfect choice. These gates feature a beautiful traditional cage and twist pattern, crafted with care to showcase a curved top and graceful scroll ends, guaranteed to impress guests. These gates are ideal if you’re someone who appreciates time-honoured designs and is looking to add a touch of elegance to your home.

Infuse your home or businesses with modern flare

Contemporary metal gates are designed to be simple yet elegant and stylish. They embody the perfect blend of functionality and durability with their clean lines, geometric shapes, and patterns, creating a contemporary aesthetic that perfectly complements modern architectural styles. These gates not only provide security and privacy but also emphasise a clean and functional look that can enhance the overall appeal of a property. Some of our contemporary classic gates include:

Whalley Driveway Gate

The Whalley Driveway Gate features a circular design that is visually appealing and durable construction using 12mm solid vertical round bars and a 40x10mm solid flat bar framework. The gate’s contemporary and stylish look is further enhanced by the 25mm ball railhead on top, which adds a touch of elegance. It’s a stunning addition to any modern home.

Barnoldswick Driveway Gate

The Barnoldswick Driveway Gate features a sleek square bar structure adorned with a contemporary collar design and topped with distinctive four-sided railheads, making it a perfect addition to any home. This gate represents a blend of modern innovation and classic elegance, appealing to those who admire refined and sophisticated aesthetics or a more contemporary appeal. Its versatile design makes it a lasting impression – an ideal choice for those who appreciate both classic and contemporary styles.

We offer our metal gates on a primed-only basis, ready for you to apply a top coat and paint. It’s worth considering that the paintwork will need to be maintained on primed gates. However, if you want a long-lasting, maintenance-free finish, we highly recommend the galvanised and powder-coated finish. Galvanised gates provide durability and enhance the aesthetic appeal of your property, but they won’t need painting, making them practically maintenance-free!
