Q: How do you clean a wrought iron gate?
A: To clean a wrought iron gate, first you must remove any dirt or dust with a cloth or brush. Then wash the entire gate with a mild soap and warm water, before rinsing it with clean water to remove all traces of soap. Avoid soap that contains bleach as it can damage the wrought iron. Ideally let the wrought iron air dry but you can dry it manually with a clean cloth. If you wish to remove any rust use a coarse wire brush over the gate and then give it a final wipe with a clean cloth.

Q: What is a cantilever gate?
A: A cantilever gate is designed to support an overhanging structure (gate) up to 10 metres without the need for external brackets. It slides on support rollers, fixed to a concrete foundation, enabling a smooth and silent gliding motion. Ideal for uneven or inclined environments as the gate requires no track or lateral swing room for it to open.
