When you make an investment in your property, you want it to be able to live up to its promise. Here at Cheshire Metalcraft, we are proud to say that our product range is based around the manipulation and implementation of wrought iron in order to create some of the most aesthetically pleasing designs on the market. From gates to railings, we are the experts to call! Read on to find out some of the key characteristics that make wrought iron so popular…


As a metal, wrought iron is incredibly soft which means that it can be easily manipulated into a range of different designs. After all, nobody wants to have the same gates as their neighbours! In fact, it can also be reheated numerous times without suffering from a lot of damage and this is beneficial because wrought iron must be heated to very high temperatures in order to be fused.


Due to its chemical composition, wrought iron is an extremely durable metal. In fact, it is resistant to corrosion and is able to withstand the wrath of mother nature very easily which is why it is often implemented in the design on outdoor items like gates, railing and window grilles.


Wrought iron has a long lifespan due to its strength. In fact, it is this strength that allows wrought iron to be used in the production of machinery and bars because it can withstand the pressure that the metals are placed under without fracturing. As opposed to cast iron, wrought iron will also show more of a warning before it does fracture.

When it comes to gates in Manchester, the team here at Cheshire Metalcraft are the experts! In fact, we believe in wrought iron so much that our entire gate range is based around it. From sliding to swinging, single to double and automatic to manual, there is little we aren’t familiar with. Get in contact today to find out more information!
