David was shown around the showroom and factory, where an impressive 20,000 gates alone are produced every year, by account manager Steph Forder and Director Julie Turnbull

They explained that Burbage Iron Craft, to give the company its full name, was established in 1978, and is looking forward to celebrating its ruby anniversary this year

Although now under the ownership of Argent, a South African conglomerate, all their market-leading products continue to be hand made using time-honoured skills in Staffordshire.

David learnt that Burbage (Iron Craft) is the UK's largest manufacturer and supplier of handcrafted wooden and metal gates, with a range that will enhance gardens and drives with traditional and contemporary designs.

High-Quality Handcrafted Products

All the materials for the gates and other products are of the highest quality with corrosion-free galvanized and powder-coated metal ensuring longevity.

Hardwearing and attractively coloured Scandinavian redwood is used for their substantial timber gates and combines wonderfully well with the delightful metalwork.

Their railing is particularly useful to decorate brickwork, introducing interest and elaboration, while metal fencing can provide a traditional and very handsome border for your property.

Popular ball and spear top designs stand alongside fleur-de-lys, scroll and gothic metalwork, all handcrafted with remarkable skill to provide exceptionally pleasing results.

From what David was shown, it's clear that the gate, railing and fence panels that Burbage manufacture will effortlessly transform the appearance of any garden or open space.
