The round bars are vertical and are used to ensure that potential intruders do not gain access by not leaving much space between the bars. MIG welders, which they manufacture themselves, give the safety door a strong, unbreakable weld seam, making it safer and less prone to damage.
Depending on the requirements for a decorated gate or a driveway, there is a choice between aluminium or stainless steel. Aluminium is the lighter of the two metals and can be used, for example, to add cast iron decorative needles, although cast ornaments are usually made of steel; TIG can only be used if the thickness does not exceed 8 mm.
Although the process is slow, the result is a high-quality door with a smooth, smooth surface and a strong, solid surface similar to a stone gate.
When welding the door, it should be noted that cast iron can be difficult to weld without tearing in non-welded areas. Use a welding technique that has its own advantages: MIG and TIG welding protect the welding pool from the atmosphere with protective sleeves and arcs. If a particularly high-quality weld is required, Tig welding is a better option because it is more efficient and cost-effective.
If you end up working with cast iron, you can consider soldering as an alternative: For welds on wrought iron, there is a weld that achieves a deep penetration between the welds.
If the weld is not continuous and sanded, crevices and crevices can provide space for water to accumulate and lead to corrosion. Continuous feed reduces the risk of weld defects that may occur during breaks.
MIG welding allows you to weld various materials, including mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium. In addition, various sheet thicknesses can be welded, including structural sheets that are significantly heavier. Compared to TIG welding, the process is significantly simpler, as the wire is fed into the welding pool for filling purposes.
It must be acknowledged that the microstructure of wrought iron can make welds difficult to weld on a variety of materials such as steel, stainless steel and aluminium. It is therefore important to carry out structural repairs as quickly as possible if you want to produce a solid weld. This could include blunting the wrought iron before the structural welding is completed and keeping the weld preparation to a minimum.
Another problem that often occurs when repairing old structures, whether working with iron or steel, is the presence of lead oxide-based paint. We bring years of experience in the field of ironworking and do everything to provide the best repair service. All types of ironworks in New York include welds on steel and stainless steel structures, as well as steel gates and other structural structures.

Occasionally, small amounts of recovered wrought iron are available for restoration. Therefore, we are able to weld wrought iron with the mildest steel and other types of steel.
The results also depend on the quality of the welded wrought iron, so we recommend a welding test with a sample of the actual iron to be welded. To do this work, you will also need the following welding safety equipment: a bottom clamp, a weld seam measurement and a metal filler wire (see metal). MAG and GMAW filler welding wires are recommended, but there are some soundproof welds with other fillers and wires that give better results than those with the same type of steel and other fillers.
First of all, all door projects require that the metal bars be cut to the appropriate length for the frame. For example, at Homemaker online the frames would use 25 mm x 25 mm bars, but for this gate project I will use 20 mm bars.
