Wood Gate Hardware
More than 25 years ago, Ameristar became the first wood gate hardware manufacturer to apply a polyester powder coat to its latches and hinges. This added surface protection against corrosion was unmatched by competing hardware lines and positioned Ameristar not only as the industry leader, but "The choice of professional installers." A variety of styles are available in Anchor, Continental, Colonial and Universal. Ameristar's wood gate hardware makes a decorative addition to any wood gate application and provides the durability and strength you deserve.
Gate kits with latches, hinges and handles are available for single and double drive gates, as well as accessories such as gate springs, gate anti-sag kits and cane bolts (also referred to as drop rods).
Maxima® Traditional Style
Our Anchor style is a traditional western style look with tall hinge pins and wide ornamental straps. These hinges, coupled with Ameristar's post mounted self-engaging latches, are ideal for wood gates that open out and they provide the optimum combination of function and fresh design.
This style was created for post and rail gates.
Continental style offers a narrower ornamental hinge strap and thumb latch which can be used for gates that open inward.
An economical choice, our Universal style hinge and latch options are for lighter weight gate applications.
