  1. Driveway Gates Brisbane: Our Top 5 Tips 

    Leave a Comment

    Looking for the right driveway gates for your Brisbane home? 

    From a practical point of view, driveway gates can dress up your property, protect it from prowlers and increase privacy, but there’s plenty more to keep in mind when making your final selection. 

    Below, we explore the top five considerations for homeowners who are going through the decision-making process. 

    5 Things to Consider When Selecting Driveway Gates  

    1. Material 

    Driveway gates are exposed to the elements year-round and need to be constructed out of durable material.  

    At Screens By Design, we use aluminium for our laser-cut gates as it is versatile, hard-wearing and resistant to rust.  

    Other popular materials for gates include wrought iron and steel.  

    1. Design and style 

    Not only do your gates have to suit the personality of your property but YOU also have to like the design (let’s not forget you will be looking at them every time you come home!) 

    Some homeowners prefer to create a grand entrance and make the gates a feature of the home. Whereas others may opt for a design which is simple and subtle, and consequently blends seamlessly into the surrounding environment. 

    At Screens By Design, we understand that everyone has different tastes when it comes to their home. That’s why we have an extensive range of design options, including: 

    • Vertical and horizontal slat screens 
    • Custom laser cut patterns (like these tailor-made aluminium gates which were designed as a nod to the homeowner’s ancestors who were early settlers.) 
    • Standard patterns  

    TIP: Remember that driveway gates will have a big influence on the street appeal of your property. If you go for something a bit more ‘out there’ you may put off future buyers.  

    1. Colour 

    As with the design of the gate, you may wish to select a bold colour to ensure the gate is eye-catching, or you may opt for something softer and more refined.  

    Either way this choice can be quite personal and will come down to your individual taste and the type of property you have.  

    We do recommend choosing a colour that compliments the existing colour palette of the home.  

    We powder coat our aluminium gates and have a variety of colours to choose from.  

    1. Sliding or Swing Driveway Gate  

    At Screens By Design, we can create both sliding and swinging driveway gates. Each of these types of gates has their own set of requirements and you may find one option won’t work for your property due to the terrain or space.  

    If you’d like a swinging gate, you will require a reasonably flat driveway, as the panels may not be able to open and close on an incline.  

    For a sliding gate, you will need ample space next to the driveway to ensure the gate can retract properly. 

    1. Accessibility 

    When determining if your driveway gates will be electric, manual or solar powered, it’s important to think about how they will be used, who needs to access your property this way and frequency. For example, if there are multiple people coming and going throughout the day, they’ll get sick of having to open it manually very quickly! 

    Homeowners who are concerned about privacy and security may prefer to install a pin pad so the gates are only opened with a private code.  Gates which are controlled by intercoms are also considered one of the safest alternatives.  

    When it comes to reliability, a gate which runs off solar will still open and close in a black out and it’s going to be a cost-efficient option too.

    Our team is equipped to custom create the entryway of your dreams, with our design and manufacturing expertise, and high-quality CNC fibre optic laser machine.

    In this blog, we share a case study for a tailor-made gate we made for a home on Brisbane’s northside which was designed specifically to reflect the resident’s cultural heritage.

    Decorative Gate Panel – Deception Bay

    Recently our team produced a one-of-a-kind entrance gate for a client in Deception Bay, who wanted the piece to reflect their Polynesian heritage.

    The main panel design featured a turtle and the words “Talofa Lava” which means “Hello Everyone” in the Samoan language.

    Our client knew exactly what he wanted the gate panel to achieve and was heavily involved in the design process, with plenty of correspondence until the design was exactly as he wanted.

    • Colour: The gate was a classic cream colour to blend in with the existing house and fence.
    • Material: 3 mm aluminium in an Aluminium frame.
    • Size: Gate itself is 1175mm high x 1660 wide. Thinner side panels are 480mm high.

    Decorative Entrance Gate 

    This decorative entrance design was truly a one-off, and Screens by Design can create something that is reflective of your own taste and style too.

    We make all types of gates, including pedestrian, hinged and sliding. You can choose from;

    • Custom laser cut panels,
    • Vertical or horizontal slat screen styles,
    • 1000+ existing designs.

    Your home is your castle, so why not add an extra element of flair with one of our unique sliding gates designs for driveways.

    You can create your own unique piece with a one-of-a-kind design, or choose from one of our pre-set designs to perfectly match your home or gardens, just like the client in our case study below.  

    Keep reading to find out more about why they opted for a stunning mixed-leaf design for their property north of Brisbane.   

    Sliding Driveway Gates Morayfield 

    We were recently contacted by some homeowners in Morayfield, who are lucky enough to live on a large block with lush gardens.  

    They wanted to add an electric sliding gate across their driveway and an additional pedestrian gate to the side.  

    As these Morayfield residents already had established gardens, with trees, palms and other green leafy plants, they wanted a gate to match.  

    They ended up picking a mixed-leaf laser cut pattern which is one from our portfolio.  

    “We had the team from Screens by Design come out to quote, design and then install the most amazing gate for us! We are beyond happy with the quality of workmanship, professionalism and attention to detail throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend them! Thank you!”

    The end product was not only secure, but it embraced the natural surrounds and blended in perfectly.  

    • Material: 3 mm Aluminium screens that fit snugly into a frame. This created a seamless look! (No cheap rivets). 
    • Colour:  It was powder coated in a satin black to match the pre-existing black fence. 
    • Gate Details: The sliding gate is 5 meters long.

    Give your visitors something to talk about with entrance gate designs that make a statement about you and your home. 

    Go bold and use flair, or fly under the radar and stay low-key, with a custom laser cut design from Screens By Designs. 

    Not sure what look you’re after? Get some inspiration in our blog below, where we discuss a one-of-a-kind design for our client north of Brisbane. 

    Entrance Gate Banksia Beach  

    The clients from Banksia Beach, in the Moreton Bay Region, had built a new home close to the beach.   

    Our brief was to create an entrance gate that was: 

    • Modern, 
    • Unique, 
    • Makes a statement, 
    • Ties in their seaside location, and 
    • Includes dolphins  

    With these desires in mind, we created and suggested multiple ideas to the client.  

    The clients love the design they finally settled on, which includes two dolphins that appear to be swimming around one another.   

    “Thanks to the team, especially Don, for creating such an awesome design for our entry gate. We are so pleased with the workmanship. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a quality job with a fair price.”

    Sandra S. 

    Decorative Gate Installation 

    The Screens by Designs team is also very proud of the final product – a totally custom and one-of-a-kind piece. 

    • Material: 3mm aluminium 
    • Colour:  The gate was powder coated in “Monument”. This colour was chosen to suit the house and match the roof with is also “Monument”.  
    • Gate Details: 1 x Single gate with 2 fixed panels to suit an opening of 2115 x 2000.  

    They also wanted an electric striker and keypad entry, so we co-ordinated with their electrician to ensure the laser cut opening for the keypad fit perfectly.
