Architectural Cable from Hercules Custom Iron

Friday, March 28th, 2014

Architectural cable is a great way to provide stability and security for pedestrians while maintaining a clean, non-intrusive appearance. The cables themselves are attached to steel railings and serve as a buffer to give the railing extra stability and provide safety for pedestrians. Architectural cable works great in settings where keeping a minimalist aesthetic is key, such as in converted industrial warehouses. It can be used on balconies for security as well as on railings to give them sleeker lines. Naturally, our architectural cable is made in-house and is powder coated for maximum strength and durability. Browse our gallery here to get an idea that might inspire your next project!

Ornamental Pool Fence in Maryland

Friday, March 21st, 2014

Are you getting a pool installed in your backyard this summer? You’ll probably need a fence to go with it. Most counties in Maryland require that any body of water that is more than 24 inches deep requires a safety barrier that is at least 48 inches tall.

Why not consider a decorative ornamental fence for your pool? In addition to meet county regulations and making your pool safer, ornamental fence allows you to customize your pool and give it a classy aesthetic. Hercules Custom Iron offers a variety of ornamental iron fences that can be used as a pool fence. In addition to their beautiful looks, our ornamental fences are also known for their durability and ease of maintenance. We manufacture our products in-house, which allows us to assure each fence is held to the highest quality standards. Contact us today for more information on installing an ornamental pool fence in your backyard.

Why Our Aluminum Fences Stand up to the Seasons

Friday, March 14th, 2014

As spring arrives and the seasons change, we’re reminded of the effect that the elements can have on outdoor installations. This is why here at Hercules Custom Iron we make all of our aluminum in-house and treat it with our unique thermally applied powder coating to protect the fence from the elements and maintain a color that does not fade or chip. This coating features a zinc primer for a high quality finish as well as a polyester coat which offers 8-10 mils of protection. In addition, aluminum is non-ferric, and we treat ours with an anti-rust inhibiting sealer to prevent flash rusting as well. Aluminum will not rust from exposure to water, whether it’s rain in the summer or snow and ice in the winter. We think you’ll see the difference it makes when your fence company has a separate facility dedicated to the production of aluminum.

Signature Projects: Washington Golf & Country Club

Friday, March 7th, 2014

Hercules Fence Custom Iron’s project at the Washington Golf & Country club involved a large scale pool and installation of an ornamental steel fence to match existing steel fence. Hercules Custom Iron shaped custom rings for the fence by band-rolling every ring from a solid ¾” piece of steel, in order to match the rings on the previously existing fence. The fence both provided security for the pool facility and an elegant, ornamental fence with a spectacular view of the golf course as a background. Hercules Custom Iron used aluminum for the fence’s construction, which was fabricated in house according to our rigorous standards and powder-coated black. Check out the photo below of this beautiful ornamental pool fence, which we’re proud to call one of our Signature Projects.
