In the 1920s, utilities magnate Clarence Geist commissioned Paul Philippe Cret FAIA and Jacques Greber for his 50-acre estate in the Main Line Philadelphia area. Clarence, an avid car buff, owned seven Model T Fords.
Compass secured the perimeter of the property with an 8-foot high wrought iron fence. Today, all the electrical work has been replaced, the Model T Fords are long gone, yet the iron fence is still as resolute and secure as ever — a testimony to the enduring beauty and longevity of wrought iron.
Whether a grand estate or ocean-side property, or pool or property fence, Compass Iron Security always delivers on its promise of quality and security.
A custom fence lets you dictate the size, pattern, and detail of your design elements. Iron or solid aluminum provides some assurance of sustainable and durable construction as compared to modern hollow production fence. Typically made from solid pickets, the final selection numbers in the hundreds; a unique or historic finial can also be forged or cast. Each picket is entirely coated with a durable, robust, yet sustainable powder coat, and welded solid, making the entire panel one solid structural piece.
Structural integrity, longevity and quality, are built in to every Compass Iron Security fence. Guaranteed.
