    No matter the type of iron enclosure you picked, its function will always be the same, which is, creating a border to your house having an entrance which can be locked. Enclosures always have to be fixed to a solid structure, usually columns or walls, and the fixing has to be done by some experts in the field. Once the enclosure is tested in order to guarantee solidity and safety, the installation is accomplished. When damages occur, usually the iron enclosure needs the help of a blacksmith. This happens, most of all when the enclosure is made in wrought-iron, with specific designs and techniques. When made by an artisan it can be very expensive, so always ask for an estimate of the costs and do not hesitate to compare it with some other blacksmith’s offers.
