Prowell Woodwork's Signature Wood Driveway Gate

Prowell Woodworks' Signature Wood Driveway Gate presented throughout Gallery #2 will appear as a departure from the more common entry gates most of you associate with this genre. Almost from the moment Prowell turned his attention in 1997 to this long neglected feature, the bar was raised to a new standard. No longer was it a choice between the limitations of the wrought iron security gate, with its cold indifference to the surrounding landscape and architecture, but suddenly an opportunity to showcase the inherent warmth of your property as a front-and-center feature.

Constructed with a series of interlocking mortise-and-tenon joints, the gates will never sag and will ostensibly last forever, barring the direct impact of the errant front bumper.

Often, and given the Driveway Gate with its prominent setting, the more telling architectural precedents of a residence will find their way into the gate design. Perhaps there is a distinction to the front windows and the pattern of their dividers, or a defining detail to the porch railing. Although given the advantage of being the first and most prominent impression, the goal is not to design a driveway gate that upstages the integrity of your residence and landscape. The goal, rather, is to incorporate the property in a manner that allows the Wood Driveway Gate to appear as a corroborating element.

There are innumerable choices and options regarding driveway gates that mount to masonry columns--stone and stucco and block--as well as the various driveway gate hinge systems preferred by your installer, and not to overlook the choices for automation motors and their accompanying communications call-boxes and keypads. Although Prowell does not provide driveway gate hinges, nor the automation, we discuss the leading options with accompanying photos on the specifications page linked to the left.

It is no longer so new. Copied, mimicked, and bumbled, the fine-tuning and perpetual improvements of one of Prowell's signature products has insured its place for generations to come.
