Whether your driveway wanders through front-yard landscaping, or beelines straight for your home, a gate can add an unparalleled “wow” factor that impresses guests and secures your yard.
Our iron double gates are especially impressive – offering the grand entrance you’ve always dreamed of for your home.
Double gates fabricated locally right here in New Orleans and installed by our highly trained contractors add an additional level of security and prowess to your property.
Our professional welders and fabricators can craft a wide range of styles to suit your tastes and design preferences, including arched top, flat top, and arched with finials (where posts extend past the top rail of the gate). If you have an iron-wrought fence, we can advise on the best style to match.

Automatic gates can only be opened with a unique gate opener (like a garage opener), keypad pin, intercom system, or installation. Electric gates discourage trespassers and prevent solicitors from entering your property. If you’re concerned about the safety of your property, installing an electric driveway gate is a good security measure for your peace of mind.
A double gate is essentially two iron-wrought gates installed at the end of your driveway like double French doors.
Your double gate can be installed in two ways:
Our double gates can swing toward your home when you pull up, or they can slide to the side along a fence when you approach. If you’re pulling from a busy street into your driveway, this gives you more space to pull out of traffic while you open the gate.
With Big Easy Iron Works, you have the ability to choose from a variety of style options available for your iron-wrought gate.
Or, if you have something custom in mind, we can create your gate using an array of different shapes and designs, with ornamental posts or finials for a more intricate and elegant finish.
Double gates are impressive and bold, making your entryway stand out in a positive and striking way. However, double gates installation might not always be the best option depending on your space and layout.
We’ll gladly answer any questions you have and help you understand which gate style (if any) will best fit your home and how we can work with your existing décor, design, and layout to find or fabricate the perfect fit to bring your vision into reality.
