Beaumaris Driveway Gates
Our Beaumaris timber driveway gates will greatly enhance the kerb appeal of any property with their elegant ‘Serpentine’ style rising head.
The serpentine shaped head features a rise of 6″ (150mm) from the lower point (other rises can also be manufactured, please contact us).
If you prefer then the Beaumaris can also be manufactured with the curve dropping to the centre.
An open boarded version of our Beaumaris driveway gates is also available and the gates can also be supplied made suitable for automation (please contact us for details).
Low centre or high centre versions of the Beaumaris?
The high centre versions of the Beaumaris tends to be most popular but if you do need the low centre then please let us know!
Both versions are made exactly the same and in fact it’s just the configuration of the diagonal braces on the rear of the gates that differ – just let us know which version you require as you place an order!
Matching Pedestrian Gates
We only manufacture the Beaumaris as a pair of driveway gates, for single pedestrian gates to match try one of the following –
