Wrought Iron: Perfect for Your Decorative, Durable Gate
Iron has been used for centuries in hundreds of different ways, primarily because it is durable and can be worked into various shapes for both practical and appearance reasons. One specific type, wrought iron, uses a specific combination of chemical content (sulfur, aluminium oxide, and so on) to give it a more ductile characteristic as compared to cast iron.
This makes wrought iron malleable so it can be heated, reheated, and worked into a variety of shapes with the remarkable attribute of getting stronger as it’s worked. It’s also of a higher tensile strength than cast iron, which allows it to be used for construction purposes. It has good fatigue-resistant properties and can be formed without causing weakness.
Perfect for Gates
These properties make it perfect for use in creating strong and attractive gates, for example. In fact, this metal was commonly used in construction in the 1800s and is still preferred when the objective is both decorative and functional. It’s difficult to find a material more suitable for this purpose when you desire beauty, security, and a practical installation at the same time.
