Steel has been used since the mid 1700s. It is a fantastic material that is strong, yet flexible. Since the 1800s, steel has serviced the construction industry and is found in nearly every building built today, such as for bulkhead doors, steel columns, steel posts, hurricane shutters, bulkhead ladders and so much more. The main ingredient in steel is iron, which is a common material forming the earth’s crust.
As for fences, steel is a very common material to be used, as well as wrought iron. At Steel Fabricators NY, we fabricate all of our own fences, on our site, so you can give us whatever specs you have for your fencing and we can make it. In some instances, you may wish for the solid steel fences to be decorated with scrollhearts, handmade fineals, or a graceful wave. In others, you may wish for a simple design with no flourishes. We make whatever size you need from a few inches tall around an ornamental garden to an 8′ steel bar fence or 9 foot steel fence with structural posts, cross braces, steel plates and rods, as well as barbed wire and razor ribbon for those particularly interested in security measures. In essence, we custom make all of our commercial steel fences or iron fencing. Many companies cannot say that. Instead, they offer an iron fence that is prefabricated and that you must work to fit into your landscaping. With our steel gates and fences, they will fit perfectly every time. Just give us the measurements!
Not Familiar With Powder Coating?
It is a finishing technique that is becoming very popular on our custom steel fences. This process applies dry paint to the steel custom fence. Solids are initially suspended in a liquid and then applied, which quickly evaporates, leaving behind the coating. Though it may seem a little odd, as it is using a liquid in the process, it is actually a more environmentally friendly way to finish iron fences or industrial steel fences. For, contemporary liquid paints are infused with solvents known as volatile organic compounds, or VOCs, which create pollutants. Whereas large quantities of VOCs are dispersed during the wet paint process, the powder coatings release very little pollutants to the atmosphere. Another benefit to the powder coating process allows the overspray to be retrieved and reused, thus reducing or eliminating waste.
The powder coating finish eliminates drips or runs, as opposed to wet painting, as well. The finish is more durable and is more resistant to heat, corrosion and scratches. For years longer, your fences will hold up to the elements a great deal longer and retain a newly painted look.
