Wrought iron products specialist Chatterton Lacework advises buyers to have a checklist when inspecting wrought iron fencing products.
When inspecting the wrought iron components, one will need to check the robustness of various components, ensure the welding of the end product is tidy and, if it is heritage-style wrought iron, confirm that there is symmetry to the scroll work. It's also important to ensure that the product complies with Australian building code regulations.
Wrought iron fencing including heritage styles can easily incorporate security elements. A classic example would be the spear design on top of wrought iron fencing that is added for extra security. The only drawback of wrought iron fencing is that it can be expensive.
Therefore, when purchasing wrought iron fencing, it would be a good idea to get the salesperson to explain the various corrosion treatment options as well as have a look at the company's previous work.
