Gorgeous Gate Styles and Ideas

What kind of gate is right for you? There are plenty of reasons to consider adding a gate to your railing project. Gates can perform a variety of functions. They can be used for safety, containment, security, or just decorative. In addition to being functional, your gate should seamlessly integrate with your architecture and the railing design. Whether for a back yard, deck, pool surround or driveway entrance, the gate is often the first impression your guests encounter. Why not make it special?

The gate must be at least 4 ft high, self-closing, self-latching, have a childproof locking mechanism, and open outward away from the pool. There are additional spacing requirements to be considered including distance from grade to the bottom rail, and vertical post spacing. Referencing your local building code pool requirements is recommended as this may vary in different municipalities. This double gate was custom made to fit the size of the stair opening. It is made of 316 stainless steel with vertical cables and a wood top rail. The gate is mounted tight to the stone walls surrounding the lower section of the pool.
