Wrought Iron Railings


Traditionally, Wrought Iron is a kind of iron with very low carbon content but includes slag to give it the appearance of grain resembling wood. Wrought Iron is tough malleable and corrosion resistant. When blacksmithing was the primary way to create metal objects, wrought iron was the most common form of malleable iron. In fact, the Eiffel tower is made from a form wrought iron. Even though wrought iron isn’t produced on a commercial scale anymore, many iron pieces are cast to resemble the beautiful look of wrought iron.

Wrought Iron has a very distinctive look that is hard to reproduce in full detail. This is especially true when there is a break in the metal. Wrought Iron looks a lot like cracked wood. There are a lot of fibers and striations showing when a piece has been cracked. The truth is that most of the iron that is described as wrought iron is actually made from something else like mild steel or even cast iron. Modern Wrought Iron is all about the appearance. Technology has come a long way to reproduce that look with many iron objects including our stair handrails.
