Looking back on fascinating Wrought Iron gates made by IRONGEAR by A.J Grant.

Bruce Grant of Irongear by A.J Grant, has been making gates for many years and has this to share:

The heaviest and biggest gates we have ever made were for a Chocolate Factory, they were clad with aluminium sheet and caught that much wind on a windy day, 4 men struggled to close them.
One automated gate we made was for an ex pat who had a holiday home at a resort in NZ. It was automated with sensors and TV cameras. He could look at his computer in Sydney and decide whether or not to open the gate for his guests at his holiday home in NZ. Automated gates at the Dunedin Chinese Gardens had to blend in with the old original wrought iron from more than 100 years old.

We’ve made “Mt Aspiring “ gates; telescopic expanding Gates; wrought iron gates only half a metre high (you just step over them); gates with family crests on; gates that go up hill as you fold them back; gates that concertina on themselves and fold out to 4 times the length.
Latterly we have been involved with a client who built a house on an old potato patch, hence, the gates were custom designed for the area with "fleur de lis" and "pomme de terre" along the bottom.

At the moment, the original Mr A.J Grant who passed away in 1991, is working on the Pearly gates. It’s been a while now but we expect the order to come through shortly!
