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.

Decorative Doors from Hercules Custom Iron

Friday, February 21st, 2014

While Hercules Custom Iron specializes in iron and aluminum fencing, we also are proficient in a variety of other projects, including railings, security fencing (crash rated bollards, gate entry), gates, and even doors. In this week’s signature project, we’re featuring these beautiful custom doors in Washington, D.C. We removed and modified some existing ornamental paneling on these exterior doors to replace it with new panels which matched the existing panels. We then powder coated the new and old panels black and re-installed them, all of which was “fast tracked” to meet the time frame requirements of the client. For your custom and decorative door needs, Hercules Custom Iron can provide you with both beautiful and timely solutions.

Hercules Custom Iron Signature Projects

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

Hercules Custom Iron has done many projects both for government and commercial enterprises around the region. They can all be viewed here. Below is a sampler of a few of our most notable projects.

U.S. Department of the Treasury

Hercules Custom Iron gave the treasury a hand by refurbishing its existing gates with the addition off stiffeners, weld fixes, sandblasting and powder coating. We re-welded the gates back in place and they sit guarding the treasury right now. It’s a tall order to guard the country’s most important financial institution, but someone has to do it!

Carderock Naval Base/United States Naval Observatory

Between these two facilities we installed just under four miles of 10 foot high steel ornamental fencing. In total, the project used over one million pounds of steel, with each panel weighing in at almost 450 pounds.

Washington, D.C. Embassies

Hercules Custom Iron worked on fences for both the Chinese and British embassies, both of which used custom cut monument tops that are very becoming of an embassy.

Check Out Some of Hercules Custom Iron’s Signature Projects!

Monday, June 10th, 2013

Hercules Custom Iron has made many custom fences for clients and customers from all over. We have a few projects that we designate as our signature projects. These are projects that we consider to be good representations of our quality and our work. Here are just a few of Hercules Custom Iron signature projects:

The Chinese Embassy in Washington, D.C.

HCI recently fabricated and powder coated the entire fence & gate perimeter for the Chinese Embassy in Northwest Washington, DC. We worked hand in hand with the architects and designers for the Embassy and although there was a language barrier, we were able to communicate via translators and through CAD drawings.

The project featured custom cut “monument tops”, a solid steel fence system with kickers, and the gates were extremely ornate with intricate patterns. We were proud to be selected by the Chinese Embassy as a local company capable of meeting their stringent design requirements, custom powder coated color, and strict time restraints.

Department of Treasury, Washington, D.C.

HCI removed the existing gates at the Treasury Department, installed temporary gates, and then refurbished the existing gates. We added stiffeners and fixed several broken welds, sandblasted the gates to a smooth bare metal finish, and then powder coated them black. We then mobilized to re-weld the gates in place.

Walter Reed National Medical Center

HCI recently installed eight floors of continue picketed light wall in-fill panels as well as custom welded wire frame safety rail running the entire ramp length of the parking garage. In all, HCI measured, fabricated, sandblasted, powder coated, and installed over (800) 42″ panels that were bolted in the field.

Each panel was specifically labeled with a floor and number, delivered to the jobsite, hoisted into place, and installed in the correct location utilizing a very methodical and coordinated plan of attack. HCI was successful in meeting the job’s accelerated schedule and the owner was very satisfied with the end result.
