The majority of gates and railings for London’s older housing stock should be cast iron heritage gates.
Cheaper, less durable and non-heritage gates and railings simply don’t look right on London homes built before the sixties.
At the start of the second world war, London homes only featured traditional iron gates and railings, mainly built in the Victorian and Edwardian eras.
The removal of these gates and railings for the war effort proved a great loss to the look and feel of London’s streets.
That’s why we recommend to anyone considering getting new gates or railings for their London home, or replacing existing gates and railings, to first take a look at our heritage collections of gates.
They faithfully reproduce in craftsmanship, quality and design the gates and railings lost in all but a few places to London, and will prove the perfect fit for your London property.
Why Period Gates and Railings Will Improve Your London Property
What do you care about most when considering which gates and railings to buy?
Probably, what they look like, their aesthetics.
We have numerous collections of gates and railings that faithfully reproduce what is recognized as the pinnacle of iron gate and railing design, namely the Victorian through Edwardian period.
They fit older London properties; they possess grandeur and they look the part.
But what’s the point of buying gates and railings that look great but don’t last?
Unlike inferior substitute products, Period Gates offer only products made from cast iron, which is intrinsically built to last. Especially as the cast iron is created using traditional foundry techniques.
This means that the gates and railings you buy for your London home would be a one-time investment, and will not need replacing.
OK, so they look the part and will last but what about the cost?
Good question. Quality doesn’t come cheap. But neither should it be prohibitively expensive.
The cost depends on the size needed to fill your space, but you will find our prices refreshingly competitive.
And, we don’t only embrace all that’s best about the past. We also embrace all that’s best about today too.
So we have no problems ensuring our collections can be combined with modern intercoms.
