If you are looking to install an iron fence around your commercial property, Texas Fence can help you achieve your vision. In Houston’s hot and humid climate- positioned so close to the Gulf Coast- the main specification to be aware of for commercial iron fences is the finish. There are three main options when considering the finish: primed and painted, powder coated, and pre-galvanized and powder-coated. Powder coating has become a very popular choice over the last fifteen years and is what we recommend at Texas Fence. It is a dry finishing process that uses finely ground particles, pigment, and resin that are electrostatically charged and sprayed on.
Iron and aluminum fence information
The iron is electrically grounded for commercial iron fences so that the charge particles adhere to it. The iron panel or post is then placed in a curing oven where the particles are melted and fused into a smooth coating. The powder coat finish aids in preventing corrosion from chemicals and weather. It also adds UV stability to withstand fading and discoloration. The pre-fabricated options available are pre-galvanized and powder-coated. To maximize protection against corrosion, pre-galvanized steel gives added insurance against rust. The least expensive finish option is raw steel that is primed, however, it is not recommended in the Houston climate. It doesn’t hold up to the weather and will begin to fade, corrode, and rust much faster than a fence that has a powder-coated finish.
Aluminum fence information
Ornamental iron and aluminum fences provide a beautiful and secure option for your property. Texas Fence offers prefabricated as well as custom designs that enhance the aesthetics and security. Our representatives are happy to help you work through these options to find one that suits your needs.
A complete weather-proof fence option is aluminum. It has the appearance of iron and is essentially corrosion resistant. The major drawback with commercial aluminum fencing is the durability. If placed in a high traffic area, it may not be the most suitable option for you. A Texas Fence representative will be glad to discuss your goals and assist you in selecting the best option that suit your needs. Various options are available to fit both the environment and the aesthetics of the property where the fence will be installed.
