Gallery - Heavy duty gate handles
These chunky handles are wonderfully tactile - which ensures that everyone shuts the gate after them!
These chunky gate handles, hand forged from solid bar, still have a light and modern look thanks to their natural metal finish.
There is actually more to these gate handles than meets the eye as they are linked to an equally heavy duty latch mechanism, all of which is also hand forged from solid metal. In order to avoid the gate handles and latch mechanism looking overly 'dungeon'-like, our client opted to have the gate furniture finished in clear lacquer, which gives a less austere appearance than the more customary black. However, we do not normally recommend lacquer as a finish for exterior ironwork as it does not offer the same level of corrosion resistance as galvanising and specialist paint - which is available in a wide range of colours, not just black! Fortunately, we paid such great attention to the the quality of the lacquer finish that after over three years in situ, these gate handles remain corrosion free.
