Inverted Arch Fortress Gates: Thick Solid Wood And Hand Forged Iron
At ArtFactory.com we believe in building doors, gates, and furniture that are not something that you just use for a few years and then throw away. Building items that are disposable is a practice that is unique to the past fifty years. In the old world, when a piece of furniture was built, it was built from solid, natural materials by master craftsmen. Most importantly, it was built to last forever. Something like a solid wood entrance gate would be passed down through a family for generations along with the home that was also built to last forever. With the custom inverted arch fortress gates, handcrafted from solid cedar (as shown), we have carried that tradition of built to last craftsmanship into the 21st century. A true modern masterpiece inspired by historic designs, and built with period correct methods and materials.
This type of product cannot be built overnight, or with low quality materials. That is why we use the highest quality, full length, solid timber, and build it by hand, using the age old, tried and tested method of mortise and tenon joinery. This type materials and construction make for a product that will stand the test of time. It is our belief that when you buy a solid wood gate from ArtFactory.com, that it will be the last gate you ever have to buy for that entrance. Old castle gate designs can fortify your home for high security. With thick, solid wood, and a unique inverted arch design, these fine art quality double gates will make a lasting impression on your guest. The old world style and decorative wrought iron adds a dignified look you won't find anywhere else. Built to exceed hurricane codes worldwide, your custom inverted arch fortress gate will become a cherished family heirloom.
Inverted Arch Fortress Gates Custom Hardware Details
The inverted arch fortress gates, as pictured, feature one of our classic medieval ring pulls, and decorative wrought iron clavos. We offer wrought iron door pulls customized in any size or style that you choose. Choose from our hundreds of styles of custom door handles and theme door pulls, or have our designers create one for you. As with all of our custom doors and gates, your hardware options are fully customizable. These products are hand hammered into shape by master blacksmiths over a coal fired forge. We can also build from any picture, drawing, idea, or design from history. We specialize in building historically inspired designs, and we build them using the same techniques and materials as the originals from history.
Furthermore, all of our genuine wrought iron hardware is finished with a hand applied, iron oxide, advance patina. This patina is heat applied at over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit so that it will infuse to the metal. What this means is a finish that will stand the test of time and look better with age. Our finishes will never crack, flake, or fade like powders and paints. Our door and gate hardware is always hand built to your specifications by our master blacksmiths using hand forged wrought iron. When we say hand forged, we mean with fire, hammer, and anvil. We never cast, drop forge, build from a mold, or use any type of fast or mass production process. This means that every time, you will receive a fine art quality piece of hardware that is uniquely yours, of investment quality, and built to stand the test of time.
Build A Family Legacy Through Heirloom Products
Building a family legacy has been going on since the beginning of time. Building heirloom furniture and doors intended to last forever is one of the primary ways we all have in achieving some small part of immortality. These cherished family items will touch our loved ones for many years to come through physical interactions as well as family photos. Many societies, including the Egyptians and Mayans, as well as European royalty and aristocracy have created and passed down heirlooms for thousands of years.
In fact, if it were not for these artifacts, it would be impossible to know these people ever existed, how they were important to history. This is also the case in the 21st century within your own family. No matter if it’s a simple, hope chest with your personal message or name as a gift to a loved one, or an extravagant, fine art quality, master handcrafted, custom inverted arch fortress gates, these items will be important to the story of your family history long after we are gone.
Fine Art Certified Stain Finish Details
The meticulous finish has been done in age old technique, using a 23-step hand rubbed process. We begin with fine hand sanding, and infused open grain hand applied stains. That puts the finish in the wood not just sprayed on it. This allows for the fine natural wood grains to show to perfection. There are then 20 additional steps requiring the application of wax, oils and lacquers with curing times between each process. This method is performed on all furniture and door wood surfaces inside and out. This tried and tested finish detail is required in the making of a one-of-a-kind, family heirloom quality product that meets world class investment quality standards that will stand the test of time. This process is the only way with little maintenance and the simple process of cleaning with oil will allow for a beautiful natural patina that will make this door more beautiful over time.
