There are a lot of types of things you can do with iron that is not just security related. Too many people think only of the security bars that people get on their windows when the discussion of iron comes into play, but for many years iron has also been used to simply beautify existing structures. This style is European, where scrollwork made from iron began being welded to secure structural elements in more expensive homes and churches. This was started due to the fact that a material that is one of the strongest on earth could also be shaped in almost any way desired. When these curved and shaped pieces are joined together using a welding method, they are just as structurally sound as if they were wimple straight bars. This provides the ability to be both beautiful as well as secure.
Ornamental iron is decorative, and as such it has the ability to be used in many applications outside of just security doors and gates. For example, it is possible to place scrollwork of shaped iron under windows to create planter box holders like those seen in old European cities. These were popular because people wanted to be able to grow flowers and plants within their small apartments but could not provide adequate light sitting them inside on window sills. The answer was to affix planter boxes outside of the window within reach of a person inside, but these needed to be affixed so securely that they could not potentially fall to the street below even after a hard rain. The answer was ornamental iron that was shaped in a way that a box could be placed inside, this iron being connected to the building outside. This style became a popular way to add beautification to a home. This same style can be applied today in many other forms as well, potentially also being seen as railings and barriers that would prevent falling.
