Gallery - Squiggle Gate
Single automated driveway gate with what is known in the business as 'squiggles'!
The hand forged 'squiggle' features in this gate add a touch of humour to this otherwise quite sober automated driveway gate, but without detracting from its innate elegance.
Despite this driveway gate's unusually wide span, our understanding of the gate's geometry and of the properties of the metal ensure that it does not 'droop' at the free end. Similarly, the quality of the automation system we use ensures that the gate does not require a jockey wheel either. Thus this contemporary but graceful gate appears to be almost suspended in mid-air.
The curve of the top rail, which is reflected in the accompanying pedestrian gate (not pictured), provides a sense of movement and an asymmetry that is actually very pleasing to the eye.
The owners of the substantial 1970s detached house where it is located paid the design of the driveway gate and matching pedestrian gate the best compliment of all. They told us it looked as if should have always been there.
