The Top Ornamental Fences Are Made Out of Metal : It is getting more and more common to see ornamental fencing. Typical fence types are being exchanged for more decorative metal fencing. Other fences do not stand up to the test of time like metal does. Some of these types of fences require a good deal of work to keep them functional. This can be time consuming for many people who do not wish this work.
Aluminum Fencing Aluminum fencing, also an ornamental fence, is very similar to iron fencing but offers heightened durability and little or no maintenance. Modern ornamental fences are either hybrids, utilizing both steel and aluminum, or solely aluminum. Aluminum fences are powder-coated for longevity and use brackets as post-to-rail connectors. This avoids the fragile, rust-prone welds so common with conventional wrought iron fences. Styles and designs for aluminum fencing include a growing range of colors, including black, white, bronze, and even green. Similar to chain link fencing, aluminum fences come in different picket, post, and rail sizes. These differences will determine the strength of the fence. For aluminum, the larger the picket, the stronger the fence. Aluminum fences are much cheaper than iron fences because they are much easier to install. On a broader scale, aluminum typically falls somewhere between vinyl and wood fencing in terms of cost.
Uses of fences o Perimeter - Fences are used to mark perimeters and boundaries. These are important to prevent trespassing and also to protect children and pets from wandering. o Agriculture - This fencing is used to keep livestock in and keep the predators out. o Privacy - Fences provide privacy when placed around a building. o Landscaping - Many times fences are used just for the decorative purpose. They are used to distinguish an area or flower beds. Also they are used to close in a pond or pool. o Boundary Fencing - These fences are used to define the bounds of a property and are sometimes even electrocuted or barbed to ward off trespassers. o For areas like airfields, prisons, military areas, zoos, swimming pools, open air entertainment areas that charge an entry fee, explosive factories and facilities with high voltage transformers, fencing is of utmost importance.
Wrought Iron Fencing is a Great Way to Protect Your Property : Wrought iron fencing was very versatile as it could be used along with other types of fencing to create even more protection. There were wrought iron fences that were used with brick that would look very stately in front of a home. Many would choose an ornate wrought iron fence to make their home look grandiose. This type of fencing enjoyed popularity for centuries. This type of fencing fell out of style in the early 1900s. It was easier to produce nice looking fences out of different materials and alloys. Wrought iron fell out of favor due to the ease and cost of making these cheaper fences that looked just as good to some. You would only be able to get them if you purchased old wrought iron and restored it.
