Iron Gates Offer Safety and Aesthetics

iron gatePicture a heritage estate, a grand old country home with cultivated landscaping and a private gardener to keep the hedges neat. Pan out to the extended driveway that leads to the main road. Surrounding the perimeter of the property, what kind of fencing and gate do you see? Perhaps a brick wall, but definitely an ornamental iron gate, of course. Wood or chain link simply does not convey the classic elegance of iron.

Why has iron been the standard for securing valuable properties from trespassers for so long? Simple: strength and durability. Iron gates keep out humans, deer, dogs, or any other creatures that may try to pass. You’d need a blowtorch to cut through iron. Have you ever tried to scale an iron gate? The vertical bars give no footing, so all but the deftest of parkour enthusiasts will fail. Whether it’s door-knocking solicitors, thieves, or a pack of hungry zombies—iron gates keep unwanted visitors from bothering your home. They are also the most durable fence and gate material, and, when well cared for, can last for decades.

You Design the Details

One of the greatest things about ornamental iron gates is how they can be customized to your aesthetic tastes. Pointed finials, square bars, a decorative crest, or a name plate—all these details can be part of the gate you choose for your property. Iron fences are usually horizontally level, but a swinging driveway gate can add an elegant sloping curve to the appearance of your gate.

If the gate is for a business, we can suggest features that complement the building, grounds, and neighborhood. For ideas, have a look at our ornamental iron gallery to see examples of the gates we have installed for our customers in the past.Iron Gate - Titan Fence and Supply Company - Dallas Texas

Easy, Secure Gates

Ornamental iron fences can be erected around properties, businesses, pools, recreation facilities, and more. Secure features let you decide whether your vehicle or pedestrian gate requires a key, card, code, of phone entry. At Titan Fence, we offer all these features and more, so you get the gate you want. We can even install solar-powered gate entry systems, to save you money on energy costs. (Many clients for multi-residential properties love that option, since the gates get so much daily use.)

Low Maintenance Iron Offers Years of Protection

With a high quality powder coating and proper care and maintenance, your iron gate can last for many years. When we install the gate, we make sure you get a powder coating that is appropriate for the North Texas climate, which will resist the elements and rusting. Nevertheless, there are some steps you can take to ensure your gate stays functioning well and looking great:

  1. Clean the gate with water and a mild detergent every six months to maintain the paint job.
  2. Grease the hinges every year or when you hear them starting to squeak.
  3. Check the gate for rust twice a year.
  4. Remove any small patches rust with a fine wire brush, wash with mild detergent and allow to dry before applying a rust converter.

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.
