What colour does that come in?

Colour is important.  It is a visual representation of us in what we wear, influences what we eat and drink and even who we buy from! (PS. our company colour blue denotes trust)

People often believe that wrought iron is black and therefore is not available in any other colour.  That couldn’t be further from the truth. Although wrought iron is a traditional material and has often been used in black there are a huge number of colours available.  But what colour you choose very much depends on what you are having done

Gates and railings

As I say wrought iron in black is the traditional colour with people using other colours like gold, silver or white to pick out the railheads/finials.  For example:-

Wrought iron driveway gates  Single wrought iron garden gate and panel

Or when adding decorative elements a touch of paint really makes it stand out:-

Garden gate with floral design  Garden gate

If choosing a product for a particular purpose the colour may already be determined.  For example a security barrier should be painted in bright colours to enhance it and make it visible.  For example this vehicle barrier we made and painted yellow

Or rather than a particular purpose if the product is in a particular place that can determine the colour used.  This was the case with these railings we made in Ashton town centre which they wanted in the “Ashton blue” colour. Or these panels for a heritage/conservation area which meant the rails had to be green with gold accentsWall top rails

This is a RAL chart showing the choose of coloured paints we can use

So in reality you have a massive choice.  You just need to consider what colour would look best for your property, for its purpose and for where it sits.
