The left leaf of Driveway Gate #33.
As an embedded steel gate, the top of the left stile features a 1" pin welded to the inner frame and rising proud to fit the site-provided pivot plate.
On the bottom, the plate with its 1" dia. pin is welded to the inner frame and will correspond to the pivot plate of the in-ground motor

Our wood driveway gates with the embedded steel frames are complicated to build, and insistent on aligning the various pivot pins to the specs of the in-ground motor housings to 1/32" tolerance, lest the gates swing out of alignment and stress the motor bearings.

But . . . the advantage, to some, is the ability to feature a wood gate that spans an opening of any width, without exposing the steel frames.

With In-Ground automation, the motors are concealed below the stone directly beneath the gates. Whereas the traditional motors are mounted on a concrete pad just inside each gate post. A visual expression of approximately 28" x 24".
