Customizable Pedestrian Gate Options:
Beginning with the basics, Glow Innovations offers three base designs for you to choose from. Once you’ve got your basic design pinned down, you will be free to pick from a variety of customisable options to ensure that your pedestrian gates are tailored to your every requirement. The three base designs of Glow Innovations pedestrian gates include the following:
1)ClassiSteel™ Pedestrian Gate:
As a specialised steel gate manufacturer, Glow Innovations offers a durable, sleek steel pedestrian gate option. Boasting a wide range of steel pedestrian gate options, Glow Innovations allows you to effortlessly personalise your steel pedestrian gates by incorporating spikes, steel-cast decorative elements, and much more.
2)Nutec HoriClad™ Pedestrian Gates:
The Nutec Pedestrian gate option is a pleasant alternative to natural wood cladding. This ingenious design makes use of fibre cement slats that can be either painted or incorporate a wood grain effect depending on the design you’re going for. Corrosion and tamper-proof fasteners are used to fix the cladding to the steel gate frame.
3)Wood HoriClad™ Pedestrian Gates:
Upgrade your home in style with the Horiclad wood options. Glow Innovations allows you to personalize your pedestrian gate by picking out your desired wood cladding as well as a variety of other exciting features.

You’re sure to find an ideal design to fit your vision with these accommodating options from Glow Innovations.
When it comes to picking the right colour, you have a variety of great options to choose from. If you’re working off of the Steel gate design template, then you’ll be picking the perfect colour for your steel bars. If you’re working with the wood or Nutec pedestrian gate options, then you’ll be picking the colour of the steel frame into which the slates will be fitted into.
We, at Glow Innovations, will provide you with the specific paint code for the colour you have chosen, so that you can view the colour swatch in person at your local hardware store. This will allow you to ensure that the colour you have chosen for your pedestrian gate is the best possible fit. The colour options available to you include:
- Plain Galvanised Steel
We use water-based enamel paint on all of our steel gates. The Plascon Velvaglo water-based paint is both favoured for its longevity and weatherproof nature. Along with your pedestrian gates, we will also provide you with a complimentary batch of your chosen paint colour for long-term maintenance and any touchups your gate might require over time.
3)Height And Width:
All of the pedestrian gates offered by Glow Innovations are available in standard heights and widths across the board. However, if standard sizes are not a suitable fit for your walkway or entrance, get in contact and send us your exact measurements. Thanks to our customisable options, you can send us your specifications and we will build your pedestrian gate accordingly. You can customise your pedestrian gate to exactly the size that you require for your walkway entrance. When it comes to measurements and installing your pedestrian gate, Glow Innovations has options for how involved you’d like to be in the process:
Full DIY: You are free to handle the entire process yourself. Send us your measurements and we will let you know when to collect the finished pedestrian gate for you to install on your own terms.
Measurements: Glow Innovations will come to collect measurements, and then let you know when you can collect your finished pedestrian gate.
Delivery: You can supply the final measurements and Glow Innovations will ship the completed pedestrian gate to your door.
Measure and Deliver: We will take measurements and then ship the completed pedestrian gate to you.
Full Service: Glow Innovations will handle the entire process from measurements to shipping and everything in between.
5)Locking The Gate:
Another customisable convenience of the Glow Innovation pedestrian gates includes how you would like to have the gate locked. There’s no point in having a pedestrian gate that can swing open at any time, which is why choosing the ideal lock is a useful and necessary addition to your pedestrian gate design. You can take your pick from these three reliable options.
- Double Acting Manual Lock
- Latching Deadlocks With Handles
- Electronic Locking Mechanism
Whichever option you choose, you can rest assured knowing that your property is safe and secure thanks to Glow Innovations’ customisable pedestrian gates.
You can also choose whether or not you would like to incorporate a handle in your pedestrian gate design. If you’d like to have a handle to use when opening your pedestrian gate, you can take your pick from either the Black Cast Steel Pull Handle or a Stainless Steel Pull Handle. Alternatively, you can source your own handle.
Another fun option is the inclusion of a postbox. If you happen to have dodged the digital takeover and still receive hand-written letters from your loved ones, then Glow Innovations has an extra feature for you. If you prefer to remain reclusive and want to avoid the postman, then you can opt-out of the postbox addition.
Should you decide to pick the wood or Nutec pedestrian gate option, you will be pleased to note the variety of cladding options available to you. All wood cladding options offered by Glow Innovations are ethically and sustainably sourced from reputable timber merchants. These gates also come equipt with anti-flex features to combat crow-bar attacks. Take a look at the variety of cladding options available:
SA Pine: SA Pine is a simple, yet effective wood cladding option and the go-to pick if you’re unsure of your pedestrian gate design.
Meranti: The Meranti wood cladding options boast a charming reddish hue and even grain for a sleek, professional look.
Thermo Pine: Thermo Pine has a dark yellow tone that can form a great contrast with lighter, cream walls.
Thermo Poplar: Thermo Poplar wood has an even darker colouring that pairs well with darker walls.
Garapa Timber: This Brazil-native wood cladding option has a golden colouring that slowly greys over time and it releases oil. This option is perfect for a rustic-looking, pedestrian gate.
Nutec: Nutec cladding is made from fibre-cement slats and can be painted over in a colour of your choice. This cladding option is available in smooth slats or with a woodgrain effect.
Keep in mind, should you choose from one of the many wonderful wood cladding options, that wood is a natural product and is prone to expanding and contracting with temperature changes. To ensure the longevity of your pedestrian gate and to counter this effect, the Glow Innovations design team insists on a minimum 5mm gap between wood slats.
You also have a pick of how you want the cladding fitted to the steel frame of your pedestrian gate. These options include:
- Bolting from the front, creating a small detail
- Bolting straight through
- Bolting from the rear for a clean front
9)Spikes And Accessories:
One of the convenient customisable options for our steel gates are various steel spikes and accessories. Take your pick from a variety of durable, high-quality steel spikes for increased security and aesthetic detailing. Below we have briefly listed a few steel spike options to choose from.
Fleur-De-Lys: This is a French decorative symbol that is perfect for a daintier-looking pedestrian gate. The delicate curves of these steel spikes are designed to look like lilies, making for classy but still highly effective protection. This steel spike option if perfect for both welcoming wanted guests and warding off unwanted strangers simultaneously.
Ricasso: This steel spike option draws inspiration from the Ricasso design. Customise your gate with blade-shaped spikes for a bold, regal pedestrian gate design. The Ricasso spikes are shaped like a blade situated above the handle of a dagger or sword. This look can be very effective if you’re going for an intimating but tasteful pedestrian gate design.
Diamond: Diamond spikes are a simple, classic option for your customisable pedestrian gate. These steel spikes are both simple and effective, taking the shape of a diamond with four corners that end in sharp points. For heightened security and a modest, unassuming aesthetic, the diamond steel spikes are the right pick for you.
Pencil: Pencil spikes are perfect for a more elegant, whimsical design. These long, slender spikes will keep unwanted strangers off of your property and beckon favored guests with tasteful charm. This simple, sophisticated steel spike design could be the perfect addition to your pedestrian gates.
Razorcomb: These short, sharp spikes are effective security elements that can add some charm to your pedestrian gate. These teeth-like spikes come in a wave profile option for a seamless, clean finish.
You can choose to have these spike designs running along the top of your gate as well as along the centre for added protection. Keep in mind, however, that the Razorcomb spike option is only available for the topmost part of your pedestrian gate.
