Building and crafting gates are our passion and over the last few years, the team at Wairarapa Gates have honed their skills and have built a number of quality gates and fences, complete with installation and automation. It’s taken us some time and effort to source our suppliers to get quality products. Our steel suppliers deliver daily as required, and our timber merchants that supply a wide range of timber and in many profiles in either NZ native or exotic timber to your requirements and specifications. The hinge and locking hardware we use, from D&D Technology, comes with a lifetime guarantee. It's by having the hands-on experience of using these quality products and their specialist services that we can now get to you the best of what they have.
At our South Wairarapa workshop we laminate our gate timbers and gate posts (this strengthens them to prevent twisting and cracking which is very important for hanging gates). We also have a purpose built spray booth for coating our steel gates. Using the very latest in coating systems, it’s incredibly hardwearing and looks fantastic. We use the time-tested Galvanising for our solid bar gates. We cut, weld and form all our steel fabrications and gate components in our modern shop using the latest technology and equipment. We find by combining all the best features of each system we can create a resilient, hardworking, reliable gate system fit for your purpose.
When you want the best, forget the rest, and call Wairarapa Gates and let us design the best system available that will do the work for you.
