All About Ornamental Iron Fencing

Ornamental iron fencing adds style to commercial and industrial properties. Synonymous with wrought iron fencing, ornamental iron fencing has been primarily constructed using steel since the end of the nineteenth century, according to Period Homes Magazine. Steel, as a fence-making material, peaked in popularity around the same time. Its popularity can be credited to its malleability, sustainability, and durability.

Today, most steel used in the fabrication of ornamental iron fencing is hollow tube, either raw or galvanized. The latter is manufactured with a protective zinc coating. Galvanized steel offers extra protection from oxidation and corrosion. Both raw and galvanized steel is primed and then electrostatically finished with urethane paint.

Steel is also incredibly sustainable. Because it is continuously recyclable, it can be produced into new steel, saving precious landfill space. According to the American Iron and Steel Institute, more than 90% of the co-products from the manufacture of steel are reused and recycled. That, along with the high life cycle of steel, makes it an environmentally friendly material. A material that can be used in the fabrication of several other fence types as well.
