Our Gate Range
We have a varied range of high-quality gates to suit all homes and tastes, from traditional period designs to contemporary creations.
Making sure that we provide the correct method of operation for your gate is important to maximise the potential of your access.
Heartlands Metal Craft offers our full Gate Range in both standard swing or sliding options. We can further offer specialist operation methods including bi-folding gate leaves or telescopic sliding gates for a truly bespoke space-saving sliding gate option.
Available as a single or double leaf gate that open inwards or outward. Space to fully open the gates without obstruction needs to be considered, as does the level of the floor throughout the travel of the gates.
Available in typically two main types:
Quality double bearing wheels are recessed into the gate frame (keeping the gap on the underside of the gate to a minimum), that then ride securely on a track across the driveway opening.
Supported by a counter balance as it opens and closes, no ground track system is required as the gate glides on two sets of hidden carriages mounted into a concrete foundation. More space is required to slide into than a tracked gate due to the counterbalance section.
Space Saving Gates
Our space saving options include:
Bi-Fold (Swing) Gate Leaves
Space saving due to the width of the gate leaf halving as the gate operates then extending to full width leaves upon closing.
Sliding Telescopic Gates
Installed in areas where space is limited while the gate is in the open-position. Gates are built in segments which are connected by a cable-guide system to keep the gate leaves synchronized and slide seamlessly upon a ground track.

In-House Gate Manufacturing and Fabrication
Our mix of highly skilled craftsmen using traditional applications, coupled with our state-of-the-art technology and fabrication machinery, means we can offer a comprehensive in-house production service.
During the design stage, the Heartlands team can assist you to ensure we meet your requirements. You will have the opportunity to see what your design will look like for approval prior to manufacture and can add special touches, including laser cut detailing with name or logo designs.
During fabrication, your gate will be galvanised, quality checked, and further powder coated – giving it the protection it requires against environmental elements and premature wear and tear. We can offer a Quality Promise on this that your product will have a long life and be easy to maintain.
Where it is not possible for us to manufacture in-house, we partner with industry experts to deliver high-quality gates. This applies to our wooden and aluminium gates, ensuring Heartlands Metal Craft can supply the right gate for your home without compromising on the product’s integrity. Our mild steel material is always sourced from high quality suppliers prior to in-house manufacture.
Our Quality Promise
At Heartlands Metal Craft, all our mild steel manufactured gates go through a Hot Dip Galvanizing process to prevent the steel from corroding, giving customers peace of mind that their manufactured work will have a long life and be easy to maintain.
The steel goes through a thorough chemical clean; this removes all rust, oil and mill scale from the surface. When the cleaning process has been completed and the cleaning solution has been rinsed off, the coating process can begin. The steel is dipped into a bath of molten zinc that has been heated to around 460 °C (860 °F). The steel is then removed from the bath and left to cool in a quench tank. When the cooling process is complete, the zinc coating is then metallurgically bonded to the steel.
Following galvanising, your product will then be prepared for powder coating.
Polyester powder coating, also known as PPC, is an alternative finish to liquid paint, with a range of colours available. It leaves a hard, smooth finish that has corrosion-resistant qualities. PPC is suited for external use on architectural structures, such as gates.
Polyester powder coatings are solventless and are applied by electrostatic application in solid state direct to conductive coating substrates, usually metals. Thermosetting powder coatings rely on heat only for melting, flow out and the curing process, typically in a temperature range of 150-200°C.

"I researched gate companies for several months before finally going ahead with Heartlands Metal Craft, based on previous customer reviews. So glad I did, albeit, the install took a little longer than I had hoped. Nevertheless, it was reassuring to see they were busy, shows they are in demand.
The installers were super friendly, and polite and always cleaned up very neatly after themselves. The workmanship was 100% exactly how I hoped they would be. Family and all the neighbours love the gate. Several neighbours have stopped and complimented how great it looks and very in keeping with the village. Some photos attached of the before and after. I would highly recommend Heartlands Metal Craft Ltd."
These gates look fantastic and so pleased with the installation and the quality. The whole experience from ordering to installation has been so good. A company with the customer in mind . Would not hesitate to recommend,
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for a looking great installation which has already been positively commented upon by a number of locals using the footpath by the gates.
I would also like to compliment you and your team on a great professional approach and workmanship during the installation. The quality and care that was taken in the running of the cables and the electrical connections and the awareness of the impact the work had on my parents was exemplary.
I would particularly like to thank your chap who completed the work (but I’m ashamed to say I’ve forgotten his name), who was brilliant in his approach and care taken and again delivered a super installation and very considerate to my parents.
As I say the gates look great and the dusted gold looks special when the sun catches it.
We ordered gates for a driveway last year but were let down badly by the driveway suppliers so we had gates but no drive. However Jason and his team at Heartlands were very supportive and were able to source a builder to erect pillars to hang the gates and are going to help further with recommendations for someone to complete the work. We have received lots of compliments on the gates from neighbours and people passing. They look great. Thank you Heartlands.
A*** Service! Highly Recommended
Excellent customer care, attention to detail and communication from start to finish!
Jason @ HMC was able to assess my requirements, giving an insightful explanation of different features with pros and cons which gave me confidence, something I did not feel when speaking to other gate companies who seemed to be out to make a quick buck. HMC made my decision an easy one.
Jason and the team arrived promptly. They were knowledgeable very efficient & clean with their work showing great care and diligence. Not to mention the detailed plans, and drawings to ensure I was completely satisfied before the job was even started. This gave me great confidence in their ability.
I had 2 sets of electric gates installed, new intercom, with railing and lighting on the perimeter. Top job.
I would definitely recommend HMC!
