Iron fence railings and gate

19
Posted 23rd OctEdited by:"mutley1"
Anyone know where I can get these made cheaply? I am in London so delivery only would work if the supply is cheap enough as I can then get a tradesman to install.

I have just had a quote of £4,000 for supply and install! so I am getting another quote but wondered if anyone know of a cheap iron works place?

I only need 3 iron railings of size 220 cm length x 39 cm height
Gate of 90 cm high x 90 cm wide with 2 gate posts

So £4,000 sounds a lot for that!

Wow just caught a flamedeer on this post lol
How do you want these supposed gates finished, not in raw iron I expect?
Galvanised, powder coated etc?
PS well done on 1114 they are coming thick and fast now.

£4000 is a good price for what you want. You should just buy them at the quoted price.

Btw mutters, me old mate, keep em coming

the quote is for primed and painted one coat of black. any other finish and it adds to the quote, the £4,000 is the cheapest finish, the most expensive is £4,500.

Be cheaper to order from outside london and get delivered.
Seems very reasonable

We got ours from castlegatesuk.com about 8 years ago. No complaints and they were reasonably priced. No idea if they are still around. They’re based in Romford

i would think so as things are cheaper up north for example. but i would need exact measurements as the above measurements are for the gap so they would need to advise the exact size to fit into the gap considering that there will be fittings, these guys come out for site visit to take accurate measurements if i go ahead with the quote. guess that is all factored into the quote cost.

Too cheap, he should offer atleast £9K

Yes. Took about a week from the 1st visit to quote and measure to installation. We got an iron gate at the front and a few iron anti climb gates at the rear to deter intruders.

sounds good. the one that i had asked says the lead in time is 6 weeks after they have come out to measure. i am not in any hurry so it doesn't really matter as to lead in time. i think it is best to get them to install as then any problem with the gates and railings not fitting stays with them to sort out.

Give them a call. Again it was 8 years ago dunno what they are like now but no harm in getting a quote
