Wrought Iron Gates for Residential Communities & Homes

iron gatesStrong, Beautiful, and Durable – Ornamental Iron Gates

Are you in the market for a new residential fence or gate? Wooden fences are the standard for backyard privacy fences, but they lack the appeal and strength of elegant ornamental iron. If you are looking for a way to secure your residential property that doesn’t interfere with the natural beauty of the landscape, ornamental wrought iron gates may best meet your needs.

Are you looking for a Plano fence company to help you with your next fencing project? As a family owned and operated business, Titan Fence takes pride in the exemplary quality of our work. We treat every job as if it were our own home or community, and ensure you get the best materials and craftmanship for your property.

Control Access with Elegance

Ornamental iron gates and fences offer homes and residential communities a way to control access and driveways with elegance. Durable powder-coated iron is strong enough to maintain a secure perimeter, but conveys a classic manor-style aesthetic that adds sophistication to your property.

Gates made from iron tend to last decades longer than wooden fences and can secure a home or community without hiding or interfering with the beauty of your buildings and landscaping.

Options for Wrought Iron Gates

There are a number of features to think about of you are thinking of having wrought iron gates built. Will they be needed at multiple entry points, or just one central entry point? Are they needed solely for car access, or will a pedestrian gate also be needed? What height is suitable for your needs? Whatever your goals, Titan Fence has the experience and knowledge to get the job done.

Iron Gate Design – If security from trespassers is the primary concern, fence and gate height and post-width may be different than if you are hoping to keep animals inside or outside your fence. We also offer a number or ornamental iron accents and post-tops, to ensure your fence and gate convey the image that best complements the property.

Gate Opening Mechanism – For private residences, gates can be constructed with a sliding or swinging entrance, to best meet your space and design goals. Sliding gates tend to work better when space is limited, as they can retract into existing fencing without impeding traffic flow or parking space.

Energy Saving Features – Our gates can be constructed to run on either electricity or solar power. If you are concerned with energy and money-saving features, a solar powered gate is an excellent way to add to your “green” factor.

Secure Entry – Whether a one-family or multi-family residence, we can provide access gates with keypad, telephone, remote control, and/or card entry.

Your Local Experts

At Titan Fence, we’ve built thousands of fences and gates in the North Texas area. We know how best to select and prepare materials for the unique elements of our local weather and seasons.

With iron, the high humidity and heat can create an environment that contributes to rust, so we make sure our iron fences and gates are treated with the highest-quality powder coating. We use a strong, protective layer to inhibit scratches and rusting; this finish enhances the appearance of the iron fence and offers a smooth surface for painting.

How often should I stain my fence?

imagesAs a rule of thumb you should stain a fence every 5 to 7 years depending on the type of wood.  We always  recommend a Cedar fence.  Cedar has natural oils and acids in the wood that make it undesirable to most insects. This allows the wood to be installed in its unfinished form and last for many years. Cedar also warps less than Whitewood or Pine fences.

 It’s impossible to completely prevent the natural weathering that occurs to a wood fence over the years, but you can slow the process by protecting the wood regularly from the elements. The stain you use to cover the wood must cover every part of the wood exposed to moisture. It’s also important to use galvanized or stainless steel hardware in the wood because these metals won’t rust and they resist warping.

 

 

Sliding Vs. Swing

electric gateThe majority of rear entry homes in North Texas have a fenced in backyard that stops at the driveway.  If a homeowner extends the fence across the driveway then up the property line, the size of the entire backyard increases as much as 40%.

Having a driveway fenced in creates a larger play area for children perfect for a basketball court, skate boards or roller blades.  The driveway being fenced off from the alley also eliminates the fear of children being struck by a car while playing in the driveway.

Sliding vs Swing

If you’re planning your automated access gate, you may be stuck on deciding which to go with: sliding or swing. Truly, neither mode of operation is better than the other. Both sliding and swing gates can provide years of lasting use. For Automatic Swing Gates, use of hydraulic or mechanical operators will ensure trouble free installation and use. Sliding gates occur more frequently in commercial or industrial applications, but can be modified for residential use. Titan Fence offers an inventory flush with different operating and control options Titan Fence expert will work with you on deciding which mode is best suited to your new or existing fence configuration.

Pool Fences

Pool fences have saved countless lives!  “Safeguarding a pool with a perimeter fence or mechanical cover is something that every owner should do,” says Seth Gilman, senior vice president at Poms & Associates, an insurance brokerage in Woodland Hills, Calif.

 A four-sided fence — one that completely isolates the pool from the yard and the house — reduces the risk of a child drowning by 83 percent, according to the CDC.

 According to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), drowning is the No. 2 cause of death for children age 1 to 14 and the sixth-leading cause of unintentional death for people of all ages.

 About 300 children under age 5 drown in swimming pools every year; the pools usually are at their own homes. One-third of these drownings occur at pools owned by friends or relatives, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
