Imagine this: your friends are on their way to your house, they pull up to your address and are greeted by a grand wood or wrought-iron gate, swinging boldly open to reveal your front yard and driveway upon their arrival.
Impressive right? We think so too.
Here at Big Easy Iron Works, with our automatic and custom gates, New Orleans residents are able to add a stately entrance to their driveway while enhancing their home security. Electric gates can generally only be opened by intercom, controller, or keypad, allowing you to keep solicitors and trespassers out while welcoming friends and family into your home.
With our beautiful wrought-iron and wood gates, you’ll not only increase your security, but you’ll also enhance the curb appeal and value of your home.
No matter what your design ideas, we can create gates to complement existing fences, architecture, and landscaping, so that your home has a cohesive design that matches your personality.
Keep reading to learn more about the types and styles of gates we offer, and how they can enhance your home:
An automatic driveway gate (also known as an electric driveway gate) is similar to a garage door.
It opens with a keypad or card controller when you approach, adding security to your yard while creating a unique aesthetic.
One gate that swings toward your home or garage when you approach
An individual gate that slides to the right or to the left, usually along an adjacent fence, when you approach
Two gates, like French doors, that swing toward your home or garage when you approach
Two gates that slide together to the right or to the left, usually along an adjacent fence, when you approach
The gate type best suited for your home or driveway will depend on the amount of space available as well as your goals. A swing gate requires more driveway-to-curb space but less side-to-side space, while a swing gate requires more side-to-side space but almost no driveway-to-curb space.
Gates can complement your home and landscape’s design, add aesthetic prominence to your residence and boost the value of your property while adding a level of security that can help you feel safe and secure.
