Huge Entrance Gates

17ft wide and nearly 20ft high to top of overthrow made in an early French period design. 

Gate decoration with an organic theme including very large flowing leaves, berries and rosettes.These gates were exported in the early months of year 2000.
An American firm of architects approached us, confident that we could forge and manufacture this very demanding entrance gate and overthrow.

Because of their large size, 17ft wide and nearly 20ft high to top of overthrow, our first concern was how to crate the gates in a standard shipping container - the solution, use a custom made container.

Apart from the two inch square solid iron gate frame, every detail was meticulously hand-forged. 

All the leaves, berries and rosettes are three dimensional and are represented realistically. The largest of the leaves started as a 4ft square half inch thick flat plate of steel!

Over 2 tonnes of iron was used to fabricate the commission.
