Trading History and Experience

We manufacture our wrought iron gates, wrought iron railings and wrought iron handrails in our own factory in the West Midlands. Our trading style is Brettell Brothers Ltd trading as Gates Railings Direct.  Our trading history dates back to 1946. 

Anthony Brettell – Technical Director
Paul Brettell – Operations Director

Third generation owners and brothers Anthony and Paul Brettell began designing and making wrought iron gates, railings and handrails for local residential customers in 1990.  Soon after, housing developers and professional tradespeople requested Juliette Balconies (as well as wrought iron style gates and railings) so these were added to our product range. Rapidly increasing demand for our wrought iron style products prompted us to launch our mail order website.  We now sell around the UK and beyond.

More About Our Technical Advice Service

Unlike many of our competitors our directors offer a full technical advice service for customers including how to measure for, order and fit their ironworks.  Both Paul and Anthony have many years hands on experience measuring up for, manufacturing and installing wrought iron gates and railings.  Examples of those we have helped include customers with unconventional site layouts, requirements for specially curved, angled and cutout railings to fit around trees and ironworks to fit uneven walls and openings.

We continue to offer our superior quality galvanized flat pack coal bunkers and corn/storage bins and we sell our traditional tin baths via our retailer Mower Magic who offer a mail order service.
