Iron gate: know the main features and openings

Choose the gate model to the house may seem a simple thing, but it is not. There are several items that need to be scrutinized before opting for one model or another. One of the first things to think about is with what material the gate will be made. There are several models available in the market, among the most common are iron, wood, steel and aluminum.

The material has advantages and disadvantages that need to be taken into account. Therefore, it is important to check the style of the building, how much you can afford with the gate, what maintenance can be done and what kind of opening and space available. It is still necessary to analyze whether the gate will be exposed to the sun or rain. All this will interfere with the choice of the most suitable material.

But in today's post we will talk exclusively about the iron gate and its main characteristics. The main advantage of this type of gate is with regard to price. Iron is a low-cost material and, depending on the model, may be the cheapest option among all materials.

The wide variety of models is another great advantage of iron. The material allows curved drawings, neoclassical style, straight lines for more modern designs or entire plates. This is not the case with materials such as aluminum and wood, which are quite limited at this point. That is, the iron gets one more dot here because it fits in any architectural style.

It is still possible to integrate the iron with other materials such as wood and glass, creating openings and gaps in the gate. The gaps can even be made on the iron plate itself, without the need to use other materials. At this point it is important to analyze if the residents wish to leave the house exposed, which is more advisable in terms of security, or all closed. In this case, privacy is guaranteed, but in return the action of criminals is made easier, as they are not seen.

The iron gate can be painted with enamel paint and this is another advantage of the material, since there are a multitude of color options and you can opt for the one that most fits the design of your home.

Iron is also an excellent choice for those looking for a sturdier material that will bring more safety to the project. Iron gates have high impact resistance, unlike aluminum, for example, which tends to knead with ease.

In terms of maintenance and durability, the iron loses. The material oxidizes very easily and the contact with the water can reduce its useful life due to the rust. Therefore, it requires sanding, treatment and periodic painting to ensure its durability.

Iron Gate Opening Systems

It is important to evaluate the opening system that will be used in the iron gate. Domestic garages need to take into account vehicle measurements and free space for movement.

The most commonly used models are sliding, tilting, winding and hinged models. For small spaces the most indicated opening is hinged, in the traditional old model of opening and closing, similar to a common door. This template can also be used in any project.

Tilting gates are also suitable for areas with little opening, usually these models are automated. Already the runners need free lateral space so that the gate leaf slides unimpeded and without invading the sidewalk of the neighbor. This model is best suited for larger gates.

There is also the option of using the roll-up gate. They have the advantage of occupying almost no space, freeing the garage area for other purposes. However, aesthetically, this model leaves something to be desired.
