USA: Wooden Gates: Wooden Gate Manufacturers
ABOUT WOODEN GATES
The most usual types of wooden gates are those which match into a run of wooden fencing. There are three main types of wood fencing for which wooden gates can be provided: Privacy Fencing, Semi-Private Fencing, and Post & Rail Fencing. Privacy Wood Fencing with wooden gates provides a solid fence, producing privacy and maximum security. The gates may be formed as a Stockade, as Board on Batten, or as Vertical Board. Semi-Private Wood Fencing and gates are formed by placing vertical planks on alternate sides of the rails, so that light and air can penetrate at an angle.
Semi-Private Fencing may also have lattice as its top section, providing a softer edge. Post & Rail Wood Fencing is a traditional open design consisting only of uprights and horizontal rails. For a traditional appearance, the horizontal rails may be natural split, providing a rustic look.
Wood gates can be provided to match into each of these types of fencing. High quality specialist wooden gates are also available. These are usually made of hardwood, such as Ipe or Teak, and are designed to be placed between brick or masonry columns.
