Its the Image one is trying to acheive...It is a fencing material that either lends itself to a certain style of architecture, budget or image of security desired. If its application fits any or all of these then it is used.

Maybe Dan Phillips's gates haven't been used much, but take a look at most of the high end housing complexes in any urban settings that tend to use it extensively to secure their grounds, as one example.

Most of the Owners or the Public don't want to see the architecture through the fencing...that is why it isn't used extensively. See this site and let me know what you think in here enhances the beauty of a New Building:
