At Ecoscape, we offer a wide variety of different composite products, including everything from composite decking boards to composite fencing and even composite cladding.
However, you might be wondering whether we make composite gates as well, so you can match your fencing, cladding, or decking with a composite gate.
Thankfully, the answer is yes, we do offer composite gates and even in a few different colours, so you won’t struggle to find one that matches the aesthetic of your home.
In this piece, we will discuss the different colours that our composite gates can come in and the various benefits that composite gates have over gates made from other materials.
Why Should You Choose A Composite Gate Over Other Materials?
As you might know by know composite products like our gates are made from Wood Plastic Composite, which is a mixture of recycled plastic, reclaimed wood fibres, bonding agents, and colourants.
While many people appreciate the look of traditional wooden gates, they require a lot of maintenance if you want to keep them looking as good as the day they were installed.
Composite gates, on the other hand, can be given a wood grain finish that can make them look just as good as wood while requiring far less maintenance. This is due to the inclusion of plastic in composite gates, making them a great low-maintenance alternative.
This plastic causes composite gates to be resistant to warping, rotting, splintering, cracking, and wood-eating insects. Composite gates also take significantly longer to fade than wooden gates, and do not need to be painted, sealed, varnished, or oiled at any point.
The fact that composite products make use of recycled materials also makes them much more sustainable than traditional timber products, as the trees used to make timber take a long time to grow, while we will always have wood and plastic to use to make composite gates.
Composite gates are also very strong, so it will take a significant amount of force to break through one, which is likely what you want, as gates help to secure your home further.
What Are The Colours That Ecoscape’s Composite Gates Come In?
Here at Ecoscape, we offer three different colours of composite gates that can easily be matched with our fencing, decking, and cladding.
Charcoal is a great colour to choose for both your composite fence boards and your composite gate if you don’t want your home to stand out from the crowd all that much.
Charcoal is an understated colour that won’t show dirt too easily but will also give your home a fresh, modern look. Both your composite gate and composite fencing can even match your composite decking, as EcoScape offers charcoal for all three of these products.
Graphite is a great colour for your composite fencing and gate if you want to go for a brighter aesthetic. It can make your outdoor space look a lot lighter and will also not show dirt easily, so you won’t need to clean it all that often.
Walnut looks the most like wood out of all of the available colours for your composite gate, so if you like the look of traditional timber fencing, but want a material that is low maintenance, then walnut will be the right colour for your fence boards and gate.
Why Should You Purchase An Ecoscape Composite Gate?
On our Ecoscape website, we already have a few articles explaining why our composite fencing is a great choice if you are in need of a new fence, as our fence boards are incredibly durable and low maintenance.
If you opt to make use of a fully composite system instead of using your existing concrete fence posts, then our composite gates will match your fence in both style and colour. This will complete the look that you are trying to go for much better than any other gate would.
At Ecoscape, we also make use of the highest quality composite products around, so you know that your gate will last a good while. If anything does go wrong, though, our gates come with a 20-year warranty, so you’ll be covered for a long time.
What Size are Ecoscape’s Composite Gates?
While all of the gates we have at EcoScape are the same width, there are three different height options to choose from, depending on the height of your fencing.
Customers will be able to choose from 1220mm, 1520mm, and 1820mm, but the width of our gates stays the same at 900mm.
Are Ecoscape’s composite gates easy to install?
Yes, EcoScape guarantees that fitting your new gate will be an easy installation if you have fitted a gate before. This is because Ecoscape’s composite gates come with their hinges, handles, and locks already fitted.
If you aren’t into DIY, then it might be a good idea to have someone install it for you, though, as you will likely want it done right.
How long do composite gates last?
Ecoscape offers a 20-year warranty on all of their composite gates, but if they are looked after properly, they could last even longer than this.
How much do Ecoscape’s composite gates cost?
Ecoscape’s composite gates are priced from £466.67 to £586.68, depending on whether you decide to purchase a capped or uncapped composite gate.
Composite is a great material for a gate, as it is low maintenance, strong, and durable. Ecoscape‘s composite gates can be delivered straight to your door without any hassles, and come with a great warranty, so you don’t need to look any further if you’ve been looking for a new garden gate.
