Betjemans Engineered Gates in Cedar

Betjemans is a small family business of long standing.

We make all of our gates ourselves at Holmefield, close to the village of Elton.

Our flagship gate is engineered using Western Red Cedar with a welded steel inner core, which allows our hinges to be attached by weld, they are adjustable using only a spanner or wrench.

This unique design of gate was developed by us to combat the problems associated with traditional gates and more especially the stresses imposed upon them by automation.

Western Red Cedar is our timber of choice because:

  • Longevity....even without applying a finish 30 years is not an uncommon lifespan

  • Stability....one of the few timbers which does not swell or shrink

  • Lightweight....as we board BOTH sides of our gates we effectively double the timber and need to keep weight to a minimum

  • Naturally beautiful....a myriad of colours and textures

  • Finish....this timber is best finished in natural oils, such as Tung or Danish oil

We Offer clients the following:

  • Free no obligation home visit and quotation

  • A totally bespoke service

  • Price promise, we wont be beaten like for like

  • Free design service

  • Aftersales service which includes 24 hour power gates callout and yearly servicing/refinishing on all gates if required

Most of our gates are of traditional design with mortice and tenon joints, but we incorporate a welded steel inner core boarded both sides.

All our gates can be manufactured to be automated.

We install every gate ourselves, we never use sub contractors. We offer maintenance and servicing as required.

A maximum of 6 weeks from order to completion, and often quicker.
