What is a composite gate?

A composite gates is a gate formed by composite boards, a more environmentally friendly option made from renewable and recycled materials such as recycled high-density polyethylene. It is long-lasting, low-maintenance, and works perfectly as an alternative to real wood.

The advantages of composite gates

Lightweight & durable
Composite driveway gates are very strong and can handle any weather. Made of wood fibers, polymer and binding agents, they have the look of wood but with extra strength. This means your gate will last for many years without needing fixes or replacements.

Easy to keep clean
Unlike wood, which can absorb liquids and become stained, composite materials repel stains, making it easier to wipe away dirt, dust, or spills with just soap and water. Additionally, composite gates typically have a smooth surface, which further facilitates cleaning as there are no grooves or rough textures where dirt can accumulate.

Mould resistant
Composite gates are made from materials that do not provide a suitable environment for mold growth. Unlike wood, which can absorb moisture and promote mold growth, composite materials are engineered to resist moisture penetration. This inhibits the growth of mold and mildew, keeping the gate clean and free from fungal growth.

The pigments used in composite gates production are typically resistant to fading caused by exposure to sunlight and other environmental factors. Unlike some materials that may lose their color over time due to UV radiation, composite gates are engineered with colorfastness in mind. This means that they retain their vibrant colors for longer periods, maintaining their aesthetic appeal without requiring frequent repainting or touch-ups.

Made from recycled material & non toxic
Unlike some traditional materials that require extensive harvesting of natural resources, composite gates are typically made from recycled plastics and wood fibers, reducing the demand for virgin materials and minimizing waste.

Composite gates are non-toxic, meaning they do not release harmful chemicals or volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the environment. This makes them safe for use in outdoor settings where they may come into contact with soil, plants, or water sources.

Conclusion: is composite gate any good?

Overall, composite gates offer a combination of durability, low maintenance, longevity, and environmental friendliness that makes them a good option for residential gate use.


However, it's essential to consider factors such as upfront cost and aesthetic preferences when deciding if composite gates are the right choice for your property.
