Steel Fence

Steel Fence: The Advantages It Can Give You

Steel fence is one of the most popular options for almost any home. It looks very much like a wrought iron fence, adding an elegant touch to your home or office. Some people will find it even better than wrought iron, because:

  • Steel fences costs less, the average price is $3,000 to $4,000, but you can find a more affordable option.
  • If stainless steel is used, there will be no troubles with rust and corrosion.
  • Steel is easily galvanized, and most powder coats fit it great, so the material becomes highly resistant to the weather conditions in Toronto.
  • It’s lighter than wrought iron, which makes it more suitable for some constructions.

Steel Fence Protection

There are two main types of steel fence protection from rust and corrosion:

  • Powder coat painting.
    There are many special powder coats that cover the construction and don’t let moisture in. As a result, the oxidation process slows down dramatically or even completely disappears. The effect works until the coat doesn’t wear out or earlier if there’s a strong acid damage on the metal.
  • Hot-dip galvanizing is done by putting afence gate or its elements into a big bath with molten zinc. Galvanizing your fencing gives a three-layer protection:
    • Zinc lays down on steel as a coat that blocks catalysts of corrosion before they reach the base metal.
    • Even if the fencing is scratched, it’s still protected by the zinc that remains on it.
    • The zinc coat corrodes first, thus prolonging the life of your fences.

We at Art Metal Workshop use both ways of protecting steel, choosing the best for your project and combining them if additional support is needed. Both of them function great and protect the final construction for a long time before wearing out.

Qualities of Steel Fence

Steel has a number of great qualities for your house or office fence:

  • This metal is considerably flexible, so you can implement almost any idea you may have for your future fence, gate, etc.
  • The material is strong enough to withstand a huge amount of pressure if the fence is installed the right way.

Size range.
Steel fences, railings, gates, and other elements can be made of almost any size without additional posts asthe metal doesn’t sag easily.

To Sum Up

Steel is a great material with many advantages you can use for strong and beautiful protection of your property. We at Art Metal Workshop recommend that you choose the right protection for your steel fence and trust its installation only to professionals.
