Question: Do you use aluminium or stainless steel for your fences, gates and balustrades?

Answer:

We specialise in both aluminium and stainless steel.

Aluminium doesn’t rust unlike wrought iron and steel that is non galvanised or has exposed welding. Aluminium is the preferred metal material therefore in coastal situations.

Stainless steel is also a favoured metal especially in marine products and balustrades for its non corrosiveness and strength.

Question: Will the colour match my fence, brickwork, house etc?

Answer:

Yes. We have an extensive range and we bring the colour charts onsite to match existing buildings. We will have a powder coating colour to suit your needs.

Question: How long will it take to install my gate?

Answer:

Once you have officially accepted our quote, we usually allow 14 working days for construction and installation. If your job is urgent we can prioritise construction for you, just ask.

Question: Do you do any repair jobs?

Answer:

Basically if its made of aluminium we can repair it. Recently we repaired 2 aluminium gates damaged by a third party. And we have also modified some stainless steel boat motor parts!

Question: I have unique ideas for my gate, fence and balustrades, can you handle variations?

Answer:

Yes we can. We love a challenge.

You’ll see our photo gallery’s on this website to get an idea of the variety of styles, colours and designs we can do and we have more photos in albums at the showroom.

We will create one-off designs for you and recently completed a replica gate for a couple who had since moved to a new property.

We also make gates and fences with wood or mini corrugated insert sheets. Some of our balustrades have glass sheets on a stainless steel frame.

Question: Are the bolts and screws you use of high quality?

Answer:

Yes they are. All components such as bolts and screws are stainless steel for strength and zero rust.
