The iron fence

The iron fence is one of the most used fences to delimit the perimeter of your home, as it has specific characteristics that make it particularly suitable for this function. Iron is a non-deformable material over time, resistant to any temperature, and moreover, during the manufacturing process, it lends itself well to being subjected to any type of forging, which allows the iron to be given any shape. For this reason it is possible to see different types of iron fences on the market, the choice is so wide that you really don't know which model to choose. Compared to other materials (such as pvc, wood or concrete) iron is more resistant and maintenance is minimal, even the cost if you choose a commercial finish can be competitive compared to other fences in different materials.

Matching to the gates

There iron fence it can be purchased in specialized shops in this sector, which also sell gates because, when you buy a fence, to create the entrance you must also install the gate. Gate and fence are made following the same ironwork design. Furthermore, whatever model is chosen, it is able to provide a rather pleasant aesthetic. The iron is treated with particular anti-rust substances since the first enemy is the rain that creates those hateful spots. Untreated iron remains exposed to the problem of rust, which will form after a short time.

The anti-rust products

Today there are products on the market for painting iron that already contain the anti-rust, and that do not even require cleaning of the one previously formed on the fence. When purchasing these specific products, it is always important to carefully read the instructions and instructions for use. Some, in fact, which do not contain any special substances, may first require the use of an anti-rust treatment and then the subsequent painting. Rust can be removed from the iron fence, using a steel brush in addition to sandpaper. Obviously, even if the iron fence it is treated with anti-rust substances, it requires constant maintenance to keep its appearance intact over time.


Whatever type of iron fence is chosen, the function is to prevent entry into the private space, although it can be fixed at different heights. The fence is always fixed on a support base, usually a concrete wall, on which it is then installed firmly. The fixing of the fence must be carried out by a specialized person who will also carry out its testing. The iron fence must be stable enough to withstand any weather conditions and remain intact. Only a strong impact could damage the iron fence, in this case only the damaged part will be repaired. The repair is carried out by a locksmith, who can either weld the affected part or replace it.

Wrought iron fence

When you decide to have a wrought iron fence built, you always turn to a blacksmith. The latter will deal with the processing of iron manually, and therefore this kind of fence, compared to those sold in specialized stores, will certainly have a higher cost. The customer has the possibility to choose what kind of shape to give to the fence. The simplest are made up of a series of iron rods, the more articulated, however, have different designs. It is good to remember that the fence is one of the first things you notice when looking at a home, which is why it is essential to choose an appropriate decoration. In the case of wrought iron, even the reproduction of a rather simple model will have its value since it will be a manual realization.

Costs and lead times

The times of realization of a wrought iron fence differ a lot according to the model chosen, so when you order, if you have some urgency to install it, it is good to ask in advance for costs and times. Those who decide to have a more classic iron fence, on the other hand, will be satisfied with the more usual models, which can also be purchased directly at a store. When you do not have clear ideas about the color of the fence, but do not want to leave it in its natural color, it is advisable to combine the color with the garden furniture or use a neutral shade.

The painting

The work of painting the iron fence can be done personally, by purchasing iron paint. Everyone can decide to paint it according to their tastes, and if it really does not turn out to be in tune with everything else, it can always be covered with another color. The painting of the iron must be carried out on rather mild days and not when the area is exposed to the sun, to obtain a better and longer lasting result. Among other things, it would also become very annoying to paint when it is very hot, so if the work is carried out in the summer it is advisable to do it during the early hours of the morning. These are simple measures that allow the iron fence to always be kept in perfect condition.
