Designing Beautiful Iron And Safe Structures!

In Colonial times, only the wealthiest could afford to import wrought, meaning hand-shaped, ironwork. These days, iron railings & fences aim to suggest traditional iron using more-available steel, usually with hollow or solid pickets made to resemble solid 5⁄8-inch square bars.

Different Types of Wrought Iron Gates

Wrought iron has been appreciated as a building material for centuries, and when it’s used as part of a gate or fence design, it can bring an authoritative and beautiful presence to any property.

  • Privacy Gates and Fences
  • Driveway Gates
  • Garden Gates
  • Pool Safety Fences and Gates
  • Balustrades (Not exactly a ‘gate’ but worth a mention because of their ability to truly transform wrought iron into a work of art)

Types of Ironwork

There are two main types of ironwork: wrought iron and cast iron. While the use of iron dates as far back as 4000 BC, it was the Hittites who first knew how to extract it. Visit our FAQs page for more information.
