These four gates and pair of sliding panels was a collaborative project with Martina Lorey Architects, Dan Darbyshire of Darbyshire Machine, and AB Fabrication & Design.
The gates and panels are constructed of heavy wall steel tubing and 4” x 3/8” thick steel flat bar, fabricated within strict tolerances. From the smallest to largest gate, the weights range from 1000 lbs - 1700 lbs, yet operate effortlessly due to the smart design of the bearing pivot system and accurate installation. Sealed with a matte clear coat to show off the depth of color in the mill scale finish of hot rolled steel.
