Aluminum Gates: USA Aluminum Gate Manufacturers
ABOUT ALUMINUM GATES
Aluminum Gates are available in both residential and industrial grades. The latter are more robust, and are suited to larger projects. They are usually powder coated, and available in white and a range of dark colors. This provides a maintenance-free finish. Various heights are available; styles include exposed vertical pickets and smooth top railings. Aluminum Fencing and Gates are relatively easy to install. Post holes for fencing should be about 6 inches in diameter and about 30 inches deep. Holes for gate posts should be 9 to 12 inches in diameter. Post holes need to be filled with concrete after the posts are in place.
