Despite its name, ornamental iron fencing can do much more than just improve the appearance of your property. When used in a commercial or industrial setting, it can also provide a secure perimeter.
If chain link and barbed wire security fence doesn’t suit the image of your business, consider the integrity and value of ornamental metal fencing. You have countless design options to choose from and, as this material requires very little maintenance, it’s also highly cost-effective.
The Many Benefits of Ornamental Metal Fences
You already know how much wrought iron fencing will improve the appearance of your property. But the benefits don’t stop there.
Ornamental metal is extremely strong and durable. It resists rust and corrosion, even with the extreme seasonal weather we experience in northern Utah. The nature of its design makes it ideal for security purposes, as it’s difficult to climb over or cut through.
Thanks to the many design options provided by ornamental iron, this material is available in a wide range of price points.
Commercial Ornamental Iron Fencing Options
Both aluminum and steel fencing provide the security you need without sacrificing architectural style.
This material offers many options for height, finish and panel design. You can choose a simple, streamlined design, an elaborate, European-style design or anything in between. Most commercial fence customers elect to have their panels given a powder coat finish at the factory and a UV-inhibiting sealer added, to extend the life of the fencing.
Ornamental metal fences offer the greatest versatility for gate options, with motorized swing or rolling gates being the most popular choice among our commercial customers.
Maintaining Commercial Ornamental Metal Fence
Although this material requires very little cost or effort to maintain, you can extend the life of your fences by performing periodic inspections and maintenance.
Inspect your panels every few months. If you notice any deep scratches, dents or gouges, have them repaired as soon as possible to prevent the development or spread of rust. If your panels came with a factory-applied coating, you should never have to paint them. If they did not, however, plan on having the fence repainted every two to three years.
Keep automatic sprinkler systems adjusted so they don’t spray the fence. Also, instruct your lawn service to avoid nicking the finish with trimmers and edgers, as any breach in the outer coating opens the metal up to corrosion.
