IDEAS FOR YOUR ORNAMENTAL IRON GATE

IDEAS FOR YOUR ORNAMENTAL IRON GATE

Iron is a versatile medium that can be used to create the perfect gate for your needs. In addition to its beauty, ornamental iron work is also capable of providing security and peace of mind when installed as part of a security or property-enclosing fence.

• Classical ornamental iron gates typically have closely-spaced bars that provide a good view while also ensuring security. They may be rounded or flat at the top, with optional caps for added aesthetics and safety.

• Iron gates can also be designed with geometric, swirling, or organic vine and floral patterns to achieve the perfect customized look for your property. Although these gates look ornamental, they are still capable of providing the security you want.

• Single gates are ideal for walkways and small entryways, while double or folding gates work well in larger spaces, such as driveways or equipment storage areas.

CARING FOR WROUGHT IRON GATES

Wrought iron is a durable material designed to provide decades of function while continuing to add aesthetic value to your property. Although minimal maintenance is required, following a few simple steps will help to protect the look of your custom gates long after they are installed.

• Moisture is wrought iron’s biggest enemy. Paint and other protective coatings will preserve the metal, but should be touched up every few years to prevent rust and corrosion. Talk to your gate and fencing installer about the best products to use to protect your investment.

• Limiting the amount of moisture your gate encounters will also help to reduce the risk of long-term damage. Trim landscaping back so it doesn’t touch the gate and make sure to place and aim sprinklers away from wrought iron fencing and gates; you should also avoid washing your car or other outdoor equipment and furniture near any ornamental iron work.

• Keeping an eye on the condition of your gate’s hinges is also important. Disassemble and clean the hinges every few years, and grease them annually using a product recommended by your installer.
