Metal fences aim to suggest traditional iron using more-available steel or weatherproof aluminum, usually with hollow pickets made to resemble solid 5⁄8-inch square bars. The lighter-weight panels come together with fasteners, making installation easier.
Metal Fences offer the ideal combination of strength and rugged good looks. The earliest metal fences were ornamental and made of wrought iron that was heated, hammered and then turned and twisted into curves, patterns and other classic designs.
With the advent of large-scale manufacturing, these one-of-a-kind fences were replaced with cast iron, for which metal workers created a mold and used it to cast hundreds of similar pieces. Although a few craftsmen still work with wrought and cast iron, today most ornamental and traditional prefabricated metal fencing is made of tubular steel or aluminum.
