Wrought Iron literally means ‘worked iron’, which refers to the method of manufacturing the metal by working (beating) repeatedly under a hammer. Wrought Iron is softer to forge, as it is workable at a higher heat than mild steel making it more ‘malleable’ under the hammer. Amazing ornate shapes can be manipulated into the metal to create stunning gate designs with no visible welds.
It is also important to take into consideration that “wrought iron” gates are many times heavier as compared to mild steel. Our wrought iron gates, similar to mild steel, can come non-galvanized, or galvanized if its to be installed at the outdoors.
