At Decor Railings, we carry both contemporary aluminum metal railings and traditional wrought iron railings. Both offer several advantages and unique designs exclusive to each type of metal.
What Exactly is Wrought Iron? The term wrought refers to the process of forging iron ore with small pieces of metallic iron. This process fell out of popularity in the late 1960’s due to costs and current wrought iron is now made of steel, which is just as durable and attractive.
Advantages of Wrought Iron Metal Railings
Wrought iron Metal railings can have a showstopper quality with their ability to be shaped into a variety of intricate patterns. Specifically, wrought iron metal railings have a reputation for conveying an elegant and romantic Victorian sensibility.
However, this is not the only look metal railings can have. With Decor Railings, you’ll have a wide range of choices for your metal railing including:
