Outdoor Columns as Post Wraps and Exterior Lighting for a Prowell Entry Assembly






Miami, Florida

With this Miami property, we find the 6x6 steel posts situated behind existing and structurally unsound stone columns. An overall opening that accommodates both the Driveway Gate and Pedestrian Gate, separated by a steel post that has been wrapped with our Wood Gate Column style #2.

Shown with Gate Style #51 modified for a top gable rail

Wood Columns




The purpose of the Outdoor Columns is to conceal the steel or wood post, while linking the Gates and the Gate Columns as a single design feature.

We see the Pedestrian Gate hinging directly off the columns with 4" bronze ball-bearing butt hinges provided with all Prowell gate orders. The latch is triggered with a Rofu electronic strike system not recommended. (Standard lock-sets require a much narrower swing clearance, and therefore run a higher risk of seeing the gate swell, causing it to wedge against the post or column and what results is a pushing and shoving motion each time the gate is opened and closed. The joinery is not happy with this effort, and for that reason, we will not stand by the long term survival of a gate not sing a standard gate latch with a horizontal drop bar.)

Gate Column #3 in Bel Air, CA.

An example of where the column was designed to the existing dimensions of a stucco pillar. As with most all Gate Columns, it arrived as a three-sided unit, slipping around the existing post and the fourth side secured in place as a final, easy step.

In this application, however, we might best consider our assembly in a more modest role by giving it a color that is more in keeping with the precedent of the house. We're after the overall affect, the sum of the various contributions to a property preferably not allowed to upstage the balance of the whole. Perhaps the olive green we see within the window sashes and bay roof-line would be a better color match.
