Wrought Iron and Aluminum Fencing
The Difference Between Them
Aluminum fencing is an important addition to any home. It adds value to your current property. It can be used as a barrier or decoration, or both. It is essential to determine what the function of your fence will be, as well as the geographic location before deciding which type of fence to buy.

If you grew up in an older city like Philadelphia you were probably accustomed to seeing wrought iron fencing everywhere. Iron working dates back to the 14th century, and it’s assumed that wrought iron fencing was made shortly after that. It can however require a lot of maintenance. (see our metalworks glossary here)
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 a metal. They are grand, beautiful, and very estate-like.
Each aluminum fence manufacturer uses a variety of aluminum called an alloy. We use only strongest among the alloys, and strongly recommend only going with a high-grade alloy fence with a special durable finish coat. (Please see our important article… ‘Marine Grade Casting’ here)
