20 Apr The benefits of wooden driveway gates

Struggling to choose the perfect driveway gate design for your property? For lovers of the traditional look, the wooden driveway gate could be the ideal choice. With the ability to effortlessly complement virtually any property, this design offers a variety of unique benefits – both in terms of aesthetics and security. We’ll be delving into these to help you make that all-important final decision. 


Wood is a highly durable material, making it a great option for enhancing your home’s security. Not only will this lessen the risk of trespassers entering, your wooden driveway gate will also be able to withstand harsh weather conditions. Of course, it is necessary to know how to treat your timber to provide that additional layer of protection, using paints, varnishes, stains and UV oil, for example. 

Security and privacy

Your wooden driveway gate will provide you with all the privacy you need. Purchasers are given the option of a closed boarded design, which will prevent anyone from peeking through. Kick back and relax with the knowledge that you can enjoy your space as you please. 

For an added degree of security, you could equip your wooden driveway gate with gate access control, meaning that you’ll have full control over who enters and exits your property. Whether you choose to grant access through a keypad, GSM intercom or video intercom, the choice is yours to make. 

Ages beautifully

If you’d prefer to leave your gate unfinished to blend in with other timber properties in your space, you won’t need to worry about the appearance. Wood ages beautifully, gradually fading overtime to a natural silvery grey. 


Wood is an environmentally friendly material, so if you’re looking for a way to reduce your carbon footprint, this design is the perfect solution. This is because the production of wood doesn’t require a large amount of fossil fuel energy, and it can be easily recycled for alternative uses. 

Easy to repair

Due to the durability of a wooden driveway gate – when maintained correctly – it’ll last for years to come. Although all of our designs undergo rigorous testing to ensure that they are completely safe to use, we want to ensure that you have the support you need in the unlikely instance that something should go wrong. If you do start to notice any issues after installation, we have an experienced gate maintenance and servicing team on hand who are here to help. It will be re-tested using our thorough gate safety checks, which will contribute to prolonging the lifespan of your gate. 


Whether you would prefer to have your gate installed unfinished (to allow for your own preferences), or customised with one of our 50+ staining colours and paints, you’ll be the one in control. Either go for a colour that matches your property’s aesthetics, or opt for a clear varnish to bring out the wood’s natural grain. With plenty of options available, you’ll be able to create a statement piece.
