Types of Iron Used for Balcony Railings

Wrought Iron

Wrought iron balcony railingsare the most convenient to be used in a wide range of designs. This type of iron can be heated multiple times and formed into different shapes. It’s strong, and even when deformed it doesn’t break unless exposed to extremely high temperatures or pressure. Wrought iron can suffer from corrosion, so certain maintenance is needed. Putting a special coating that resists corrosion and rust every couple of years will be sufficient.

Cast Iron

Cast iron balcony railings aren’t as flexible in design. Cast iron is more brittle than the other types, so it’s impossible to create thin decorative elements using it. It is created by melting iron, pouring it into molds, and letting it dry and solidify. The advantages of cast iron are in its compression strength and suitability for casting.
