Default Wrought iron gate

Is there a specific term used for the piece of metal on the outside of a gate that covers the gap between 2 gate halves?
I built a nice gate for the folks and there is a slight bow in the center on each gate half so I want to cover the gap with a piece of plate steel. I figure while I’m at it I might as will incorporate the a latch mechanism.
Looking for ideas on how to do it or the specific term used so I can look it up.

Yup. Locksmiths and building security people call the strip of metal attached to doors and gates to protect the latch and locking mechanisms from prybars and the like "security astragals".
