Why Wrought Iron?
Wrought iron railings possess timeless charm, a look that spells out solid dependability, and a near infinite range of styles when wrought and shaped by our craftsmen. They look great, they have proven stopping power if impact is an issue for your home, they put off unwanted intruders and welcome guests in style. Wrought iron railings are typically delivered oversized and then cut to exact sizing in situ which means our iron working craftsmen will tailor your railings to the perfect dimensions for your property.
Wrought iron railings come in two types - solid and hollow and while the hollow version offers a little more flexibility and a little less weight both types are renowned for their toughness and durability. Our wrought iron has a high carbon content which makes it extremely tough and the process of making wrought iron, in which the iron is heated to extreme temperatures to be shaped and stretched results in an incredibly tough final product that will bend and not break if subjected to extreme force. Which means it can hold out a car crash. Your iron railings will literally last you a lifetime.
Iron balusters are a classic look no matter what style you opt for but there are certain looks that they can create that are truly unique. That classic wrought iron look is perfect for any property aiming for a gothic or victorian look and no other material comes close.
