Winterproof your Gates

We feel it’s the right time of year, as we enter autumn and winter approaches, to think about how to protect the appearance of your gates from the bad weather. Cold weather conditions like frost and snow, often cause corrosion in wrought iron gates. Maintaining your gates is simple. We’ve provided some advice to help with gate maintenance.

Metal Gates Amersham

Paint your gates to protect them from corrosion. Galvanise them or powder coat them to keep your gates looking attractive. For anyone with a home by the sea or with gates close to roads that are often salted in icy conditions, you should know that wrought iron gates are most at risk of corrosion. Check out the methods below to ensure you protect them:

  • Painting your gates will hide any unsightly blemishes including rusting. Over time however, paint will start to flake away, which means you will need to consider how regularly your gates need painting to ensure their upkeep.
  • Galvanising gates can provide protection for longer periods of time, and avoids the need to continually paint your gates. Coating gates with molten zinc protects them with a non-corrosive protective, silver finish that lasts for around 25 years.
  • Applying a powder coating to your gates offer the chance for colour application to the metal surface of your gates. This method means baking dry powder to the surface of your gates following galvanisation and will need to be carried out in a factory. By doing this your gates have an additional level of protection and there is no need to keep repainting.

There’s nothing wrong with choosing manual gates but if you are looking for ease of use and increases security then installing automated gates gives you that control. You control who you let in, and out.
