Returns & Warranty

Warranty Information


Warranty conditions to be aware of:

Gates which are NOT galvanised (primer or painted only) have a ten year workmanship warranty. You are NOT covered for rust as we cannot be sure how the gates are treated after leaving us.

Galvanised gates have a massive 25 year workmanship warranty, this extends to include rust on the gate. Our galvanised gates will literally last a lifetime.

PLEASE NOTE: For any of our gates, regardless of the warranty period, the anti-theft collars and eye-bolts are not covered against rust. These are plated and may require periodical painting to keep them protected from the elements. Drop bars, latches and any other moving parts are also excluded from the warranty.

Returns Information


Our policy lasts 14 days. If 14 days have gone by since receiving your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.

To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging.

Under the Consumer Contracts Regulations you have the legal right to cancel your order up to fourteen working days after the day on which you receive your goods. You do not need to give us any reason for cancelling your contract nor will you have to pay any penalty. However, you will need to get in touch with us to arrange the cancellation.

After this 14 day period has expired we will be unable to accept returns of any items purchased unless faulty and still within the warranty period.

Bespoke orders cannot be cancelled under any conditions.

If you cancel your contract but we have already processed the goods for delivery, you should not unpack the goods when they are received by you and you must send the goods back to us at our contact address at your own risk as soon as possible.

Once you have notified us that you are cancelling your order, any sum debited by us from your credit or debit card will be re-credited to your account as soon as possible, and in any event within 14 days of cancellation. We may make a deduction from the reimbursement for loss in value of any goods supplied for damage, this will be deducted from your refund.

To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase such as your invoice, sales receipt or bank statement.
