At Authentic Gates we pride ourselves on delivering the best quality workmanship and products that are long lasting as well as value for money. Over the years we have come across several frequently asked questions about our genuine timber gates and you can find the answers below.
Only heavy duty galvanised bolts, brackets and hardware are used and good quality strap hinges, gudgeon pins, drop latches or chain.
All our handcrafted gates are made to order and are generally despatched within 6 weeks from receipt of payment. Please allow between 6-8 weeks to receive your order.
If you have special needs or particular deadline, we will look at our production schedule and do our best to work to your requirements. Please call today if you would like to discuss this further.
Currently we do not offer pre-painting of our products. All our gates are supplied in their raw state ready for oiling, staining or painting. Alternatively you may choose to let them weather naturally to acheive a silvery grey patina.
All Timber Gates produced by Authentic Gates not only carry the stamp of true craftsmanship but are also fully supported by a 10 year warranty.
All our gates are manufactured here in our own Sydney factory.
When sourcing timber, Authentic Gates selects only the finest and most durable, seasoned Australian Hardwoods. Hand selected from carefully managed and sustained yield licensed forests, these timbers are then handcrafted into practical gates of natural beauty.
Installation is very simple. If assistance is required, any reputable fencing contractor should be able to help with this.
Because we only use seasoned Australian hardwood, Authentic Gates are naturally weather resistant. We do advise that you oil, stain or paint your gates to ensure you maximise their lifetime
With heavy hardwood farm gates we recommend using round or square Ironbark posts that are at least 200mm in diameter.
Most of our single gate designs are available in individual widths up to a maximum of 3.6m. The Vineyard design is the only design that includes a 3.9m single span. Any standard gate can be reduced to a smaller custom width at no charge.
Made from durable Australian hardwood, most driveway gates weigh between 80 to 120kg per leaf.
