I presume you are refering to the gates I am selling? gt14. They are made in Italy and are of square section steel tube and cast iron inserts some 24' across. We mainly design one-offs for descerning clients and import other cast products from around the world.
I am a design engineer by profession and really do enjoy the beauty that wrought iron work brings to a property. It livens a somewhat dull looking material to life and compliments/enhances a residence. The layout of an estate or private dwelling should be like a well laid out garden, you should not be able to see it all at once. The design should continually lead the eye and immagination to the next vista.
I do take onboard what you are saying and can only agree when the work is inappropriate for the setting.
Thanks for your point of view Donald.
