Established in 1994, we are located in Plainfield, NJ. We now represent over 25 quality manufacturers including Lawler Foundry, Grande Forge, Lavi Industries, D&D Technologies, Rikfer, etc.

Architectural Iron Designs
has partnered with Fratelli Comunello , the world's leading manufacturer of gate hardware to bring their high quality products to the US. We are now proud to offer their signature Cantilever Gate System, the one-stop solution for light, medium or heavy sliding gates under the DuraGates brand.

The system works on a simple principle of 2 heavy duty carriages mounted on the ground and a high quality track that rolls on the carriages and supports the gate. There is no need for any complicated system of rollers and wheels. Once installed, the Comunello Cantilever System is fully enclosed from external elements thus requiring minimum maintenance.

Please contact us with any questions on our products or inquiries on any other matter. Distributor inquiries are also welcome.
