Wrought iron gate is commonly used in as the main entry gates for both HDB and condo in Singapore. Wrought iron gate is favoured by most people due to its durability and wide variety of design and colour available.
Even though wrought iron gate is prone to rust if it is being installed in outdoor and in areas with direct rain and sun shine, the lifespan of wrought iron gate can be prolonged if it is constructed using galvanized material. Galvanized wrought iron material is being treated by dipping wrought iron bar into a solution of molten zinc. Being more reactive than iron, zinc reacts as a protective layer preventing the iron material from rusting.
