As its name suggests, our Curved headed driveway gates have a solid full thickness head.
The curved head rises a gentle 6″ (150mm), although smaller rises are available if required.
The Curved headed pair shown right is the fully boarded, high centre driveway pair in Idigbo (Hardwood).
An open boarded version of our Curved pair is also available, as well as a matching pedestrian gate and smaller garden gate.
Although our standard design of the Curved pair features a 6″ (150mm) rise, our Curved gates can be supplied with different height rises – give us a ring if you’ve something specific in mind!
Our Curved driveway gates are also available with matching garden gates and single pedestrian gates.
Full thickness curved head?
Our Curved headed gates as mentioned feature a full thickness head, the boarding joints into the curved head – this protects the more vulnerable end-grain of the boarding and makes for a much more longer lasting gate!
As with all our gates each pair is made to measure and based on a sturdy 70mm x 70mm through wedged morticed and tenon jointed frame.
Curved headed driveway gate specifications
All top edges on any horizontal rails of the Curved headed pairs 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 Curved headed gates (vertical outer uprights of the gate frame) also have rounded outer edges.
