From small fire pits and patio furniture to automated gates, steel-framed gates and security gates, we’re with you through the entire process, from design to installation.

Metal Made Beautiful

Established in 2020, our team shares more than seven decades of experience in the steel industry. With knowledge and skills honed over these years, our products are manufactured to the highest standards and we are consistently receiving top-rating and positive reviews from our growing number of clients.


Using top-of-the-range technologies and modern equipment, Forge the Way offers the following professional services throughout the areas we cover:

Automated Gates

Working with you to ensure the right system is installed at your home or premises, we can install automated swing, bifold, or sliding systems. Our engineer will discuss these automated gate options with you onsite, going through each style in detail and advise accordingly, ensuring you’re happy with your choice.

Bespoke Metal Gates

For clients who want something different, such as ornate spikes or a monogrammed gate leaf, our steel fabricators will design and construct exactly what you’re looking for. We accommodate all requirements so don’t hesitate to contact us if you’d like your property to stand out.

Security Gates

Designed specifically to suit private and public properties, our custom-built security gates will include pedestrian access doors, if required. We can advise which automation will suit your property best, and provide initial drawings so you can visualise the installations in advance.

Steel-Framed Gates

Forge The Way’s steel fabricators have built their reputation on replacing sagging and rotting timber gates with longer lasting and durable steel-framed designs. Our bespoke service guarantees your new gates will fit perfectly as we measure onsite to ensure precision cutting.

All gates designed and manufactured by our team at Forge The Way are available in both mild and stainless steel. Mild steel contains carbon components whereas stainless steel’s main element is chromium. Both differ considerably across fabrication, cost, durability, flexibility, and resistance to deterioration. We will discuss both elements with you during our initial onsite visit and advise on which product will suit your property or personal design best. 

Our automated, steel-framed and security gates, along with our bespoke metal gates, are available in the following finishes, in a range of colours to suit your private, commercial or industrial property:

  • Bare Material

  • Galvanised

  • Powder-Coated

  • Wet Paint

Where relevant, we’ll ensure the timbers are lacquered and weather proofed.

We provide an emergency service throughout the evenings and weekends for our clients based in Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, Horsham, Lewes, Brighton, Crawley, Maidstone and the surrounding localities throughout East and West Sussex, Kent and Surrey.

Covered by both employers’ and public liability insurances, we offer our clients a 1-year guarantee on all installations, and we acknowledge the warranties on products and materials used during the construction and installation processes.

Give us a call today to learn more about our automated gates, steel-framed gates, security gates and other high-end products.
