At Fence-Depot.com, we offer high quality wrought iron fence panels and gates, a superior option in today's fence market. Residential and Commercial grade wrought iron fences are available for different applications. What is the difference? Can I use a commercial grade iron fence at my residential property? Can I use a residential grade iron fence at my business? What is the difference in cost between the two? What items do I need to buy to determine how much it will cost? These are all frequently asked questions that will be addressed here in this article.
The difference between a residential and commercial grade wrought iron fence is in the size and weight of the components that make up the fencing. For example, a 4’ high residential grade wrought iron fence section has ½” square vertical pickets and weighs about 45 lbs. The 4’ high commercial grade wrought iron fence section is made up of ¾” square vertical pickets and weighs about 70 lbs.
When we are talking about “residential” grade or “commercial” grade it doesn’t mean that you can only use residential grade for your home or commercial grade at a place of business. You can absolutely use either option for any application. The terms residential and commercial are only used to signify that one is lighter and one is heavier than the other.
The commercial grade wrought iron fence will cost about 50% more than the residential grade. We determine the wrought iron fence cost by adding up the fence sections, posts and gates needed for a specific project. The fence sections are sold in 8’ wide lengths and their price includes the hardware needed for installation. The posts are usually either 2’ or 3’ longer than the height of the fence sections (so they can be buried in concrete) and their price includes a standard post cap. Our gates include hinges and a latch in the price as well. An easy way to estimate the total cost of a 4’ high residential wrought iron fence would be to use $16.50 per linear foot. The 4’ commercial wrought iron fence cost would then be around $24 per linear foot.
