We love hearing the details of your projects and we’re starting the year off right with some wonderful photo contest submissions!!
For this first one, our customer purchased a Nero Contemporary Gate Latch as well as spring-loaded hinges, featured here.
“The architect (David Fisher of Thomas Denzinger in Charlston, SC) cleverly used the return on the garapa lattice as the stop. The carpenter did a neat job installing the hinges on this heavy gate. The look and action are excellent.”
“Thanks for your help with your nice hardware.”
The use of this corner piece of fence as a gate stop was incredibly clever. Though we provide gate stops with every latch that we sell, we really prefer not to see them. And this invisible stop that doesn’t take away anything from the design of the gate and fence line is an ingenious solution. You can read more about them in this blog post (and parts 2 and 3), but in short, your latch-arm and catch are meant to latch the gate, not stop it; a gate stop will – and will protect your hardware from damage caused by a gate slamming shut (not to mention, keep your warranty valid).
Next, we have another mesmerizing horizontal gate, also using our Nero! Seeing all of the horizontal lines parallel to each other and lining up from fence to gate to fence is so appealing!
And then last, but certainly not least, our winner with the Nero (again) on a double gate! One look at this double gate and you instantly know the craftsmanship is superb.
We have known Brett McPherson of The Land Collaborative in Marin County, CA forever. He recently shared that our great products have become the go-to for TLC in gate hardware – we love to hear it and see how they are rocking it in this industry!
