About us

Handcrafted to our customers requirements

We pride ourselves on prompt, friendly service. All our products are made to measure, with our designs or yours. Apart from Heavy Grade Box Section around gates, for rigidity all the material is Solid Steel.

It is our company mission to produce quality products at affordable prices for our customers, to meet and exceed our customers needs, and to deliver and install on or before the agreed date.

All our work is Hot Dip Galvanized to achieve the highest level of corrosion resistance. Most of our products are then Powder Coated to the colour of your choice. We offer a complete and comprehensive service – from the initial measure and quote, to the manufacture and installation.

When you deal with Steel Life, you deal only with my wife and myself. We measure, we manufacture and we install, from Start to finish. I look forward to discussing your needs.

Regards Michael and Jackie Evenblij
