Similar to our Beaumaris driveway gates, our Caernarfon driveway gates combine an elegant swan neck style head with an open vision panel below.Click on any of the Caernarfon images for bigger, more detailed pictures of the gates.
Made to measure in a choice of five timbers, you can choose the Caernarfon gates with the swan neck as either a high centre (rising from the hinge side of the gates) or low centre (dropping from the hinge side).
Usually the swan neck head rises (or drops!) 6″ /150mm as standard.Got a specific rise in mind for the swan neck head? These can usually be accommodated – please get in touch with your requirements.
All top edges on any horizontal rails of the Caernarfon feature an angled water run off, this stops the build up of moisture on your gates and makes for a longer lifespan. The stiles of the Caernarfon (vertical outer uprights of the gate frame) also have rounded outer edges.
