Priced in Larch softwood a superior softwood with great strength and durability.
The Butley has a striking raised helve, this is the "hook" part on the hanging style and is on both wide and pedestrian gates, although for the latter it is slightly lower. The brace that joins the raised helve is called a flying brace and again is on all sizes.The gate in the above picture is 4.2m in length. To balance and complete the look the matching fencing either side uses same size posts. Finished in an Ebony oil based stain.
Cheaper Alternative ?
We also offer a Basic Butley gate available in a pressure treated Scandinavian Redwood. The Basic Butley is a cheaper alternative due to slightly simpler design but still with the raised helve and flying brace. Please see related products at the bottom of this page.
Shown here is an unequal pair in pressure treated Scandinavian Redwood. Unequal pairs are a popular choice for wide driveways as easy pedestrian access is available.
Gates widths 1.2m and under are matching single pedestrian gates.
Both of these Butley gates have a solid base rail, giving an equal look top and bottom. This is required for gates that are going to be automated but is often popular to enhance the look of manual gates too.
The first one is painted white where as the other is untreated Douglas fir this timber is no longer available.
The Butley gate shown here was treated with white Solignum opaque woodstain.
The braces were altered here to match in with an existing gate the customer already had. The gate was also fitted with high quality galvanised mesh to the back for dog proofing. This can be seen more clearly below.
It has been teamed with co-ordinating Picket side panels either side of the driveway.
Larch is the best timber to use if painting or staining your gate.
