Iron Gate: Know the main features and openings

Choose the gate model for the house seems a simple thing, but it is not. There are several issues that need to be scrutinized before deciding on one or the other model. One of the first things to think about is what material is used to make the gate. There are several models on the market, the most common being iron, wood, steel and aluminum.

The material has advantages and disadvantages that must be considered. Therefore, it is important to check the style of the building, how much you can afford with the goal, what maintenance is possible and what kind of opening and space are available. It still has to be analyzed whether the gate is exposed to the sun or the rain. All this will interfere with the selection of the most suitable material.

But in today’s post we will talk exclusively about the Iron Gate and its main features. The main advantage of this type of gate is in terms of price. Iron is a cheap material and, depending on the model, can be the cheapest among all materials.

The large variety of models is another great advantage of iron. The material allows sweeping drawings, neoclassical style, straight lines for more modern designs or entire panels. This is not the case with materials such as aluminum and wood, which are quite limited at this point. That is, the iron gets here another point, because it fits into 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 door. The gaps can even be made on the iron plate itself without having to use other materials. At this point it is important to analyze whether the residents want to leave the house, which is advisable in terms of security, or all closed. In this case, privacy is guaranteed, but in return the action is facilitated by criminals as they are not seen.

The iron gate can be painted with enamel paint and this is another benefit of the material as there are a variety of color options and you can choose the one that best suits the design of your home.

Iron is also an excellent choice for those looking for a more stable material that brings more safety to the project. Iron gates have a high impact resistance, in contrast to aluminum, which tends to knead.

In terms of maintenance and durability, the iron loses. The material oxidizes very easily and the contact with the water can reduce its life due to the rust. Therefore, it must be sanded, treated and painted regularly to ensure its durability.

Iron gate opening systems

It is important to evaluate the opening system used in the iron gate. In the garages vehicle dimensions and freedom of movement must be considered.

The most commonly used models are sliding, tilting, winding and hinge models. For small rooms, the most frequently 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.

Tilt gates are also suitable for areas with little opening, as a rule, these models are automated. Even the runners need free lateral space, so that the door leaf can slide freely and does not penetrate into the sidewalk of the neighbors. This model is best for larger goals.

There is also the possibility to use the roller door. They have the advantage that they take up little space and make the garage area free for other purposes. Aesthetically, however, this model leaves something to be desired.
