Why should you be interested in a wrought iron gate promotion as opposed to a typical security gate? Your average security gate is also strong and durable, but the design options are severely limited.
Wrought iron, on the other hand, can be shaped and crafted beautifully. Unlike mild steel, it also contains a little carbon which allows it to be more malleable without compromising its strength.
The gate needs to be galvanised before being installed. Once this has been done, it is a no-maintenance option. You can opt to leave it in its natural state and not paint it if you don’t want to have to perform maintenance.
The look is versatile. If you’re sick of putting up with the dull black metal, prime it and paint over it. Painting your gate will mean having to sand it down every few years or so and repainting it, but this is easily handled.
The primary advantage of this kind of gate, though, is that it is sturdy and durable. To cut through it requires specialised equipment. A determined burglar, if given sufficient time and the right tools would be able to do this eventually.
It’s going to take some time and will create a lot of noise, which is why most burglars will look for an alternate entry spot or softer target instead.
