We are small family business in Alpheton, Suffolk located on an old World War 2 airfield run by Managing Director George Corrie.
Over the last 5 years at Suffolk Timber Gates, we have established ourselves as one of the UK’s leading softwood, hardwood and bespoke gate manufactures supplying the trade and retail sectors. We offer all our customers a range of different options to suit everyone’s budget from small side pedestrian gates to large automated entrance gates. All made using traditional joinery methods mortice and tenoned joints finished with hardwood dowels.
Having our own timber mill that is designed to suit our gate production gives us the flexibility to make all of our gates from the best quality timber possible.
We offer gates made in different timbers from all around the world, Scandinavian Scots Pine, Siberian Larch, West African Iroko and European French Prime Oak. Bulk
Over recent years at Suffolk Timber Gates, we have recognised that the UK market for manufacturing and supplying standard size pedestrian and hand gates has grown more increasingly competitive along with the generally quality of products falling.
Having manufactured these gates ourselves for several years, the demand for quantity, quality and a competitive market price has become ever more difficult to sustain. Because of this we have had to look at alternative avenues of production and supply to try and satisfy these demands.
Today we now bring a full load of gates over from our Dutch workshop every 6 weeks to our yard at Alpheton, Suffolk where we organised the treatment of the goods if required and distribute out. It is still early days and a modest start but moving forward we now have the ability to gradually increase our capacity as demand arises, and we now feel we have an excellent and competitively priced product we can offer going forward.
We can supply all our products untreated or fully pressure treated in either green or brown ACQ treatment. As the products are constructed using all pine timbers this achieves an exceptional colour finish in both treatment colours, with all items generally packed in packs sizes of twenty gates for ease of handling through the treatment and delivery process.
Our gates are constructed using fully planed timbers throughout except for the feather edge cladding within our closeboard gates, which are a very smooth cut sawn timber and our gates are manufactured using higher timber dimension sizes than most other gates within the current marketplace.
