The Benefits of Installing Steel Ornamental Fencing

Benefits of Installing Steel Fencing

Once you’ve decided to fence in your yard or business property, you have a lot of choices. Here in the Denver area, one of the most popular choices is ornamental steel fencing. It has beauty and elegance, and a lot of other things going for it that make it a great choice for residential and commercial applications alike.

Let’s take a look at the top benefits of steel ornamental fencing:

Increased Security

Any time you put up a fence around the perimeter of your property, you’re increasing security. Steel ornamental fencing panels come in a more decorative height of 3’, but are also available in 4’, 5’, and 6’ fence heights. In addition, an ornamental steel fence is compatible with automatic security gates and access control systems.

This makes a taller fence with pointed pickets and a security gate a good deterrent for a would-be trespasser.

Fast and Flexible Installation

Installing steel ornamental fence can be installed relatively quickly due to the prefabricated fence panels. This type of fence is also ideal for installation on a slope, because it’s available with rackable steel fence panels that adjust to the slope of your property.

Rack able fence panels are specifically designed and manufactured to make matching a slope much easier. The pickets attach to the rails of the fence using pivots that allow the pickets and rails to adjust to any angle. We anchor the fence posts and then measure and mark the distance from the mounts to the ground just like we would on level ground. Then we hold one end of the panel to these marks on the post with clamps and line up the rails with the marks on the next fence post. The rail then adjusts to meet the angle, and we move on to the next step.

This may sound involved, but it is still much faster than putting together a fence picket by picket.


Made with welded steel, this type of ornamental fencing is stronger than its aluminum counterpart, and cannot easily be cut through like chain link can. The powder coated finish prohibits the development of rust, which means it can stand up to our Colorado winters without a problem. And steel fence will never be subject to rotting or splintering like wood fence can be.

Low Maintenance

Steel ornamental fencing is incredibly low maintenance, and will look good year after year with little to no effort from you. Contrast that to a wood fence which may need to be stained or painted. And steel fence will also not warp like wood can. The most you might need to do is use some touch-up spray paint if the fence gets scratched or nicked.

Increases Curb Appeal

Curb appeal is a point of pride, but can also help you sell your home or attract new tenants to your property. Steel ornamental fencing enhances curb appeal, by creating an elegant and attractive frame through which to see the rest of your property.

Wide Range of Styles

Ornamental steel fence also comes in a wide range of styles. Options include:

  • Fence height
  • Picket spacing
  • 2-4 bottom and top rails
  • Picket bottom
  • Rail flush bottom
  • Puppy pickets
  • Fence post styles
  • Post caps
  • Finials
  • Arched gates
  • Straight gates
  • And much more
