Otago Engineering has three main grades to choose from when it comes to Gates:


Light tubular steel Gates

This is a lightweight option ideal for garden and pool fences, path gates and entrance ways. It can be manufactured in a wide range of styles and sizes and powder coated to the colour of your choice for an ultra-smooth and long lasting finish.

Mid tubular steel Gates

These steel gates are ultra-strong, yet light and durable. Making them ideal for extra-wide driveway gates, stair balustrades and balcony railings. They’re significantly lighter than the Clydesdale solid steel gates. These gates are made from black hollow tubing, hot-dip galvanised and powder coated in your choice of colour.

Clydesdale – heavy-duty solid steel gates ideal for security gates

Clydesdale gates are made from ultra-strong heavyweight solid steel. They can be manufactured to any size, style and finish and are made from hot-dip galvanised and powder-coated steel. Of course, you can pick your choice of colour when it comes to powder coating. These solid steel gates can evoke that style of the great castle gates of Europe, where only traditional will do. They can also be very modern. A heavy-duty gate, they’re ideal for security gates, window guards and railing and robust settings.


Wrought Iron Gates

With well over thirty years as an engineering business in Dunedin, Otago Engineering have produced some of Dunedin’s iconic wrought iron gates. Think of the Chinese Gardens, the University of Otago, Port Otago and Milton Prison. Otago Engineering brings decades of skill and craftsmanship to their wrought iron gates and are happy to discuss customised designs and bespoke gates.

Automatic Sliding Gates
