Wrought Iron Security Gates Hertfordshire

Whether you’re travelling through St Albans, Watford or Letchworth, keep an eye open for some rather handsome wrought iron security gates in Hertfordshire. The 1st Choice Security Systems team have been busy lately, designing and installing bespoke driveway gates for a number of clients in the area. In each case, the priority was security, but it wasn’t to be a the expense of aesthetic design!

The crime rate in Hertfordshire isn’t particularly high, and this wasn’t the primary driver for our clients. In the majority of cases they were looking for an extra line of defence for their property. Security gates, fitted with a door entry system, allows residents to see or hear callers before giving them access to the front door.


Why Wrought Iron Security Gates in Hertfordshire

Wrought iron has played an important role in the history of Great Britain. The malleable strength of the metal made it key to the production of weaponry and tools in the Middle Ages. Fast forward a few centuries to the 1600s. Wrought iron is now being used as a protective covering for doors and windows, but it’s also finding a decorative function. The blending of strength, protection and aesthetic pleasure is hard-baked into this ancient metal.

5 Reasons to Choose Wrought Iron for Security Gates

Wrought iron security gates offer a range of benefits, including:

  1. They’re Very Durable. Once installed, your wrought iron gates will last for years. Unlike wooden gates they won’t rot, chip or require re-painting. Cast iron doesn’t dent, bend or crack – making this a long-term investment for your property.
  2. Rust Resistant. Wrought iron is an alloy, which means that its far more resistant to rust than many other metals. Your gates will not, therefore, suffer from corrosion which weakens metal and requires specialist treatment.
  3. Easy to Repair. Wrought iron is built to last – which is why we have so many historic examples still in existence. Your gates are unlikely to require repairs, but if they do, your sections can be removed and replaced, rather than having to install a new gate.
  4. Bespoke Designs. The ease with which wrought iron can be moulded into decorative patterns makes it a popular choice for bespoke designs. Over the years the 1st Choice team has incorporated family initials, coats of arms, and numerous original patterns.
  5. Adds Value to Your Home. A beautifully wrought security gate adds value to any property. Its decorative quality creates a great first impression for visitors to your home, and the blend of security and aesthetics is a hugely popular choice at present.
