Our Curved headed gates, as the name suggests, features a solid full thickness gently curving head, which not only makes for an elegant top to the gate, but also serves to protect the end grain of the tongue and groove boarding, making your new gate last you much longer.
The curved top gate, shown, is in Meranti (Hardwood), and is the fully boarded, high centre (rising to the centre) version.
The rear of our Curved top gate, showing the sheer strength and craftsmanship we lovingly put into all of our gates, is shown right and a low centre (dropping in the centre) version is also shown below.
Each and every gate we make is carefully and specially made to measure for your specifications by time served craftsmen, and are available in smooth planed Hardwood (European Oak, Meranti and Idigbo), Accoya (Modified Softwood) and Scandinavian Redwood (Softwood).
