Why Wooden Gates Are Not As Popular As They Used To Be
Gates made from traditional materials such as wood look great. But they require a lot of maintenance to stay looking great or they go grey, paint or varnish starts to flake and eventually, they start to rot. Suddenly, the beautiful wooden gate is a grubby, rotting eyesore. But what’s the alternative? What can look as good as wooden gates without the pain of high maintenance?
The range of long-lasting colours is almost unlimited such as grey, green, white, blue and black… Aluminium gates will also not rust, rot, twist or warp. All they require is a periodic wiping down with water to maintain their beauty.
So you can spend your summer enjoying your gate, not painting it.
Longevity of Aluminium Gates
Linkcare’s aluminium gates come with a ten year guarantee. This is because Linkcare supplies Aluminium gates with a surface coating that provides the finished design and look of your chosen gates but also gives them an incredibly tough protective layer.

They‘re Light So They’re Safer
Aluminium is light and this means that less force from your gate motors is required to open and close the gates making them safer and more economical.
Aluminium Gates Are Strong
Aluminium alloys are light and strong. In fact, Aluminium is stronger than steel or wood gates with the same weight.
This means they also don’t need hinges and locks capable of dealing with heavier gates.
