The Wind Turbine Gates

And now for something completely different!

We recently made this unique pair of personalised gates for private clients in Long Ashton, near Bristol.

The design of the gates was based on wind turbines, something close to the hearts of the couple that commissioned them. The Ironart team comprising of Andy (design) Jim, Martin, Dean and Ted had great fun working on this project which was both challenging and rewarding in equal parts. All the turbine blades were made out of cast steel, the spinner and body sections were all made separately and threaded onto the bars. The personalised letters were laser cut and threaded onto the plates and the whole thing was galvanized before it was painted.

If you have a quirky or unusual idea in mind and would like to talk to us about commissioning something completely unique, we would be delighted to help, so please get in touch. 01225 311 273

Gates at College Fields, Clifton, Bristol

Earlier this year we made a set of double gates for a large private house in College Fields, Clifton, Bristol.  I’ve posted some pics taken once they were installed.

In the workshop today…

The Ironart workshop has been humming to the tune of gas forges, grinders, sanders, drills, punches and lathes…. all to the pulsing back-beat of the power hammer! The whole place is a hive of heat, creativity and energy – most of which is being poured into two sets of gates on the go at the moment.

Here are some images of Jason hard at work on the gas forge realising a set of impressive gates for a private customer in Kent. Enjoy!
