Add privacy with Wrought Iron Fences
We are proud to manufacture wrought iron fences for any sized project. We are capable of beautifying any property in order to provide the comforts of privacy and security. In addition, we also have experience in designing and installing fencing around high-profile and private properties where security and privacy is essential. Whether you are a homeowner or a larger commercial client with private or public property, our tradesmen, with time-honoured skills and innovation are up to the task to deliver what you need.
Pool Enclosure Fence
When it comes to designing and installing pool enclosure fences, there are certain requirements that must be met in order to comply with the law. For instance, in the GTA, the existing Ontario Building Code requirements relevant to pool enclosure fences requires all residential and public pools to be enclosed with a minimum non-climbable 48” high fence enclosure.
This is to prevent illegal, unwanted, or unsupervised entrance to the pool area.
In the City of Toronto, you are not required to enclose the property in residential properties but you are required to separate the home from the pool, nonetheless.
A typical pool enclosure fence consists of 2×2 posts, ½ x ½ solid pickets, 4” on centre and a non-climbable horizontal rail system, which requires the 2 horizontal rails to be no closer than 48” apart. Note: any gate entrance system must have a self-latching and self-closing system.
Custom Fence Enclosure
This is example of a lovely solid wrought iron custom fence enclosure that we custom built and installed in a property located in south Rosedale.
We removed and disposed of an existing gaudy fence, while the beautiful brick columns remained. To match the existing style, we designed a few substantial looking yet elegant fence details—a harmonious balance to durability and beauty.
The pickets are solid 1 inch x 1 inch forged with a hammer detail along the neck and a center sphere detail. The top and bottom rails are solid 2 ½ inch forged bar, which makes a very rich looking final product.
All materials were hot dipped galvanized, washed, latex primed and finish painted.
Working collaboratively with the client’s landscape designer, we chose a very dark caramel colour instead of the standard black finish to better complement the client’s property. Since the home features a very light exterior colour palette, the final product fit in seamlessly.
Both the clients and the landscape designer were very pleased with the final product!
Decorative Fence and Gate
This was truly a very interesting project and is an example of one of our quality decorative fence/gate systems. A very high profile client called us once again to his estate property in Aurora that was situated behind private golf club. What he required this time was a very custom iron fence to enclose his estate.
Since he had three very specific but crucial requirements in mind, this was one of our more custom projects.
- He requested his initial to be present somewhere in the design
- He did not want his daughter’s French Bulldog to be able to get through or under
- He requested that there be some design in the fence that accentuated a detail found in the solid wrought iron railings we built for him previously
Since he was already very aware of our quality and service, there was complete trust and confidence that we would be able to come up with a design that suited all his needs.
In the end, our customer was satisfied and we built a 5ft high custom solid wrought iron double bar fence. The top rail was 1 ½ x 1 ½ H.S.S. (hollow steel section), with a middle rail of 1 x ½ inch channel and a bottom rail of 1 x 1 H.S.S. All posts are 3 x 3 H.S.S. that were all dug and set into concrete footings with a decorative ball cap on top.
We custom laser cut his initial out of ¼ inch solid plate then welded them into the double bar and also welded some steel solid collars to create a specific pattern that matched the existing iron railings.
Finally, we had to custom build each section of fence to accommodate the rolling landscape in order to keep the family pet safe.
Once again, a job well done as commended in his review on Homestars.
Our neighbours keep asking us “who made your cool fence? ‘’ Thanks again. We are very pleased with the workmanship.
