QB ID: x

        The South Hampton with English Lattice Top and Paneling is a classic design drawn from the scenic homes of the vacation destination, South Hampton, New Hampshire. The durable design and solid construction recall the traditional New England work ethic that has resulted in beautiful crafting for generations, while the English latticework invokes the ancestry of New England, and the classic elegance of an English garden. The bottom paneling also provides a measure of privacy for residents.

Hinges, J-bolts and barrels are included with each of our cedar gates. You can utilize existing posts/columns, or purchase either the 4 x 4 posts or 8 x 8 cedar fluted columns.

Care

Weathering turns cedar a light grey color. To preserve the warm tones of the wood, it can be sealed with a UV wood sealer periodically. The gate can also be stained, painted, or used "as delivered".



Kiln Drying

Kiln drying is the process by which moisture is removed from lumber so that it can be worked. Wood is a hygroscopic material, meaning it gains and loses moisture according to the environment, causing its shape to change with humidity. This can be detrimental to items constructed of wood, so kiln drying is a process developed to reduce that problem. Wet lumber is loaded into a kiln, and the heat is controlled to prevent warping or defects as the wood is dried. Kiln drying produces a more reliable, durable timber product that is also more resistant to fungi and insects, making it great for outdoor products.

Welding

Our gates are welded using traditional stick welding processes. Also known as shielded metal arc welding, this process consists of using a consumable electrode coated in flux (a chemical agent - zinc oxide - that removes oxidation from metals) to create an electric arc for welding. The vapors from the flux create an inert gas, known as shielding gas, which conducts heat and reduces the voltage required for welding. This process also creates slag, or melted metal, that protects against atmospheric contamination of the welded material. The slag must be chipped off, and the overall process requires a skilled artisan for a properly finished piece.

Bonding

The cedar is permanently bonded to the welded frame with LP Premium waterproof polyurethane adhesive, which means the gate will have a high resiliency to harsh weather elements due to its performance characteristics and resistance to moisture. With our "Full Frame Double Stacked Impact Point" design, the durability and strength of the gate will remain uncompromised even after dealing with the rigors of automatic gate openers. For the cedar exterior, all angled joints are screwed, glued, and then filled with wood filler. Bungs are used to fill all straight drilled holes. Then angled and straight holes are sanded to ensure a smooth, seamless finish.

Western Red Cedar

Western Red Cedar is an evergreen tree native to the northwestern United States. While it is not a true cedar, it does have the aromatic quality typically associated with cedar. The wood of this tree is excellent for woodworking because it has a tight, straight grain and few knots, making it easy to work, and offering an unmarred final product. Because it is highly resistant to decay, it is a popular choice for outdoor construction, such as with decking, siding, and fencing. It is also attractive enough for use in instruments, and its light weight and strength make it ideal for guitars.

Steel

Steel is one of the most common materials in the world today because of its inexpensive production cost, reliability, durability, and versatility. It is used in everything from construction to home appliances to automobiles. It is so critical to so many industries, in fact, the steelmaking industry is considered to be an indicator of economic progress. Steel is also the easiest material to recycle, and it is cheaper to use recycled steel than to mine it from natural sources. We use 11 gauge steel as a frame for our cedar gates because it enhances the strength of our gates for a secure entryway.

        Each of our products is crafted upon the placement of the order, and is shipped directly from the manufacturer to you. Delivery typically takes 2-3 months depending on the complexity of the piece, the availability of the crafters, and the expediency of the customs bureau.
        During that time, we will be in frequent contact with you. Upon the placement of the order, one quarter of the total cost is due and you will receive an electronic order confirmation identifying the U.S. customer representative who will be monitoring the order. The next e-mail notification will be sent when the order is completed and received at our distribution center; this notice will contain a picture of your completed gate, and the rest of the cost will be due at this time. Upon receipt of the balance, we will ship the gate and send you another notice identifying a tracking number for your convenience.
        We very selectively choose the manufacturers who produce the gates shown here, and culture a personal relationship with them. By providing these products directly from the manufacturers, we are able to offer you lower prices since there are no interim business or dealer costs to cover.
