Black Stainless Security Gates – Cayucos Residence

Black Stainless

Stainless Steel Security Gates for Cayucos Home

The owner of this home on Pacific Avenue in Cayucos asked us to manufacture and install some security gates. Keyed deadbolt locks provide the security, and the use of stainless steel would require power tools for a forced entry. Stainless steel is the best way to avoid rust streaks and deterioration, but even stainless requires preparation and painting, unless the natural tarnishing is OK.

The owner offered carte blanch on the design.  We opted to replicate the design on the wooden-and-glass entry doors for simplicity, and used 1″x1″ and 1″x2″ tubing to this effect. 

These gates have been in place for over a decade. If you need the security and beauty of custom security gates, give us a call at Beck’s Welding in Cayucos CA 805-995-1005.

Faux Copper Gate


This gate is galvanized, then treated to appear as weathered copper.  The  ”spinning orb” motif was co-designed with my friend Rick Mortimer.   You may see the zinc coming through as a white powdery substance, called “white rust”.  Marine environments are the most corrosive on the planet, but this gate has held its own for over 25 years. 

Wine Bar gates


The client wanted her wine storage area made secure, and a bit more artsy, too.  Tucked under her hillside driveway, the bar has plenty of light and is protected from prying eyes.  The gates are powdercoated.

Baroque Gate

Gothic Gate

Here we have the gothic touch: the high flutes, the opposing scrolls, the high arch and involuting borders.  This gate has gravity hinges, which use the weight of the gate itself to return to the closed position.
