For hundreds of years ornamental fencing has enhanced the architectural beauty of homes, buildings and churches. Originally fashioned from wrought iron designed and forged by blacksmiths, today's ornamental fencing is crafted using modern materials and current production techniques. Steel or aluminum components are fabricated into sections using fasteners, locking rods, or welding. Once you determine your requirements, you'll find it's easy to select the appropriate ornamental fence for your application.
Match the design to your security requirements
Ornamental fencing can provide many levels of security for residential, commercial or industrial applications. The right combination of fence height, picket spacing, fence style, and material components can provide the protection you need.
Keeping pets and children in the yard, or out of an attractive hazard such as a pool, are common objectives. Your local building code may specify required fence height or product features to alleviate safety concerns.
- Most residential ornamental fences come in heights ranging from 3' to 6' high.
- All ornamental fences can be designed with pickets above the top rail or with the top rail covering the tops of the pickets.
