Fences and railings that run around the entire perimeter of the house have long ceased to perform only a security function. The owner of a modern house is worried not only about the safety of property, but also about the appearance of the home. Moreover, both of these factors are closely interconnected and speak of the solvency and respectability of their owner.
High fortress-type walls erected around the house are no longer relevant. They have been replaced by modern designs that are less conspicuous, but more reliable in terms of protecting acquired property. Solid fences were replaced by more elegant fences that perform decorative functions. One of these is a wrought iron fence.
In the era of socialism, it was customary to veil the we alth acquired by labor, and its demonstration was considered bad form. Today we alth is not a vice. And its best demonstration is a beautiful mansion. Forged fences allow you to admire the shapes and facade of a luxury home. These seemingly weightless structures, as ifbaguette framing the artist's masterpiece, put a modern home in a highly artistic framework.
Forged fences are both classics and the most unexpected design solutions. Thanks to the possibilities of artistic forging, the facade of the house can acquire a unique look, reminiscent of an old estate. Elements of a metal pattern can be painted with a special interior paint. Gold or silver patina looks spectacular on a dark background of cold metal.
Forged fences can be made in a variety of styles: gothic, romantic, neoclassical, baroque and urban. The desired style is selected depending on the architecture of the house and the taste preferences of its owner.
Most often, forged fences are made from repeating elements mounted on support poles. This method of fencing is the most affordable at its price, but does not differ in individuality. Such work is carried out by welding.
Real forged fences require a lot of labor. This includes the designer's sketches, the large amount of material used, and the blacksmith's handiwork. However, the result justifies the money spent, testifying not only to the we alth of the owner of the house, but also to his excellent taste.
Many owners strive not only to emphasize the architectural style of their mansion, but also to endow it with unique qualities. So, satisfying the whims and desires of the more demanding and, as a rule, we althy,customers, forging masters offer the most intricate fences. In such designs, in addition to universal elements such as leaves, spirals and palmettes, blacksmith artists use individualized details made using special blanks. Fences that combine several sections with a continuing three-dimensional pattern look very unusual and beautiful.
Caring for wrought iron railings
Metal fencing is perhaps the most unpretentious in the care of all types of fencing. However, it still requires little maintenance. To maintain cleanliness, it is enough to wipe the product with a regular brush. It is advisable to use a special anti-static agent for cleaning dust.
Despite its strength, the steel from which these fences are made is prone to rust. You can prevent this process by treating the fence with zinc or car wax. Although the quality material is processed by a conscientious manufacturer with a special powder coating.
