Why You Need an Ironmongery, Gates, and Grilles Specialist to Design and Install Your Gates

Securing your property, whether residential or commercial, is vital. When you lock your doors, you need to feel safe.

There’s a common misconception that the mere presence of gates offers protection. However, an alarming number of gates are poorly maintained or even incorrectly installed, with some critical elements and components missing.

To prevent potential hazards and to keep your property secure, you need to enlist the help of an expert in ironmongery. What is ironmongery? Well, it once referred specifically to those who dealt in the making and sale of iron goods, but in the UK has since expanded to mean anyone who deals in metals, not only iron but also steel, brass and more. While it may be tempting to attempt to do metalwork jobs yourself, when it comes to safety and security, can you afford the risk of not doing the job properly? It’s a much better idea to call in an ironmongery specialist.

What Does an Ironmongery, Gates, and Grilles Specialist Do?

A gate or grille specialist is responsible for a number of tasks. An ironmonger's duties might include:

  • Domestic and commercial installation of gates and grilles: These professionals ensure that all materials and equipment required to properly install gates and grilles is sourced and used. 
  • Regular maintenance: After your gates have been fitted, regular maintenance is crucial. A gate ironmongery specialist will be able to attend your home to oil and tighten joints, ensuring your gate is always secure and doesn’t pose a hazard.
