In this day and age of technology, companies like Avion Metal Works of Florida have introduced an attractive alternative to
wrought iron fence by using aluminum alloy instead of iron. Aluminum is the best alternative on the market today to enhance your
property, especially in damp, salt-water environments in States such as Florida. Ornamental aluminum fences have the traditional
wrought iron look without the required care and maintenance. This is because of two main factors, the finish coat and the nature of
aluminum as metal. They are grand, beautiful, and very estate-like.
