Exceptional Custom Gates

Made in Texas

A Trails West gate is fine as cream gravy...

Long before barbed wire, cattlemen used brands to tell rustlers they’d better keep their no good cattle thieven hands off their herds. Brands were a source of pride of ownership, they marked who owned what.

Todays ranchers use gates and fences to keep their cattle from bein rustled. More importantly, there’s times the little lady and younguns are home alone on the prairie. Sometimes a gate ain’t about what you keep in, but what you keep out.

A Trails West brand gate is fine as cream gravy, and we won’t ask you to pay thru the nose or fork over a lot of dinero.

And that is an ironclad promise.

Thank you for such a great product and great service! Our gate made it here just before it snowed! 🙂 Here are the pics of our gate! Our neighbors are stopping by to read the sticker at the bottom to see who made the gate...do you have a Trails West advertisement sign we could put by our gate??? We'd love to advertise for you! Also, the huge posts really make it stand out! We love every part of it!

I just wanted to send you a quick email about the sign you guys created for us. I can't tell you how thankful we are. You guys are truly a blessing to our community. The sign is wonderful. I never thought it would be sooooo detailed. We have numerous public meetings in our new building and I cant tell you what a show stopper it is. I spend more time talking about that sign than you can imagine. Thanks for everything and please dont hesitate to ask if you need anything.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I pay for my gate?

When you are ready to order a gate, just give us a call us. You will be required to put down a 50% deposit at the time you order. That will get you in the lineup and start the design of your Texas custom ranch gate or western metal sign. If needed we can send you a how to measure for your gate spec sheet.

Is my deposit refundable should I change my mind?

Yes, if we have NOT yet started on the design.

What material do you use to make these gates?

We use heavy gauge steel and sink weld all our pipes. All gates are primed and painted with the highest quality industrial paint. The gates require only minimal care to last for years to come.

Do your prices include shipping?

No. Our prices only include the cost of our Texas custom ranch gates and do not include any crating or shipping charges. Those will be added to your final billing or credit card charge.

Do the prices include posts and hinges?

Yes, the gates come with posts and hinges, unless other arrangements have been made. We use the strongest ball-bearing hinges available.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express, check or money orders (made payable to Trails West) Unfortunately we have to charge the 3% transaction fee. That is one way we try to keep down costs.

How will my gate be shipped to me?

The gate will be crated and shipped via Central Freight, or private transporters, which ever is most economical at the time. The gate will come with an install kit. Posts and Hinges will be included. We can only give you an estimate on shipping, once the gate is completed and crated, they are weighed, then we have the actual cost, and will revise the estimate accordingly.

How does the design process work?

We offer Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum categories. You can pick your frame from our copyrighted designs, and pick the art from the art library, or you can customize your design to suit your needs. There will be small upgrade charges for changes, just ask, we have tried to work out as many options as possible. When it comes to custom, everything is possible. When your design is ready we will email you a drawing to scale for your approval.

However, the most economical solution is to pick from the samples. We make our own art library with our Texas western metal signs and ranch gates that is not available anywhere else.

Because we have years of design experience we know what will work as a silhouette visually and structurally, we will design the art using indigenous animal and plant life, specific to your local. The art will be emailed to you to scale. If you want a logo or brand included please supply us with the best copy you can at the first so we can take everything into consideration.
