Ornamental Iron Fencing Styles & Benefits

There are several options for enhancing the appearance and security of your commercial or industrial property, including chain-link and ornamental iron, both of which feature unique advantages that make either choice ideal for minimum to maximum security applications. These can be designed, fabricated, and installed by commercial fence contractors in the greater Phoenix metropolitan area.

However, businesses looking to make an excellent first impression on their customers may want to consider the imposing presence, albeit impressive aesthetics of ornamental iron. This fence type is available in the following six basic styles, with unlimited customization potential and exceptional longevity, so you can be assured of the security and safety of your commercial property.

Regal provides a clean, sophisticated look, featuring a top rail. It is an excellent option for minimal security applications.

Modern offers commercial, industrial, and municipal properties with a traditional look and standard security. It, like other styles, can be complemented by an automatic gate.

Guardian features pressed spears that bend towards the top of each picket, providing an imposing presence, ideal for high-security applications.

Aristocrat is an excellent option for various Valley properties, featuring pressed finial tops for a less imposing design than the guardian, without compromising security.

Welded wire fences provide the perfect balance between aesthetics and security for applications that require unobstructed visibility.

Perforated metal fences use panels that have been pierced with holes for aesthetics while allowing you to visualize vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

Benefits of Ornamental Fencing


Ornamental iron fencing is typically constructed of hollow tube steel, either raw or for enhanced oxidation protection, galvanized. The inherent properties of steel, such as its durability and recyclability, make it an ideal choice for fabricating this fence type. According to the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), in the United States, the end-of-life recyclability of structural steel is 98%.

Corrosion Resistance

Corrosion is the gradual deterioration of materials, usually metal, which results from chemical or electrochemical reactions with the environment. The ramification of corrosion is significant, costing US$2.5 trillion worldwide, according to an economic impact report from NACE International. Galvanized steel prevents oxidation, protecting it from corrosion; therefore, this material choice should be considered when fabricating ornamental iron. You may also want to consider powder coating with electrostatically applied urethane paint for enhanced corrosion resistance (NACE International).

Customization Potential

Another significant advantage is that commercial fence contractors can fabricate ornamental iron into an unlimited number of designs, from simple designs common to educational facilities to more intricate designs that follow the contours of a mountain or prominently feature your business’s logo or, perhaps a school crest. In addition, custom fence fabrication allows the fence to complement the property, both in appearance and utility.
