Parsons Brothers are unusual in that in addition to classic wrought iron we specialise in constructing Timber Style Gates. Whilst real timber gates have an undeniable style and elegance that suits many properties they do suffer from problems inherent in the material - twisting, drooping, splitting. frequent maintenance etc.
Timber and Steel gates
These problems are particularly evident when it comes to automation. To overcome this we have created a range where many of the designs are completely manufactured from steel offering the stability and strength desirable in an automatic gate. Where a solid gate is required for privacy they have a steel frame closely resembling heavy section timber with hardwood infill, offering the best of both worlds.
Timber style gates
All of our gates are available in a wide variety of sizes and are made to suit customers driveways. Some of the detail is difficult to see in photographs but for example our "Tudor Style" TG 200 design has the corners of the vertical members scalloped out to resemble the classic timber features found on such gates. The magnificent posts shown with this design have the same feature and a detailed top all crafted from steel. They are 250mm (10Ins) square - a size you are unlikely to find on other gates, but which give that sense of solidity that sets these gates apart.
When nothing else will do we supply a range of hardwood gates crafted in Iroko, Sapele, Idigbo etc. These are manufactured for us by a specialist joinery company and we are able to offer our professional installation and automation expertise.
