Q: What is the difference between architectural and statuary bronze?
A: Architectural bronze and statuary bronze are terms used to describe different alloys and uses of bronze. Historically some of the same bronze alloys (copper, tin, zinc and sometimes lead) were used for a cannons, sculpture and architectural elements. Priceless bronze sculptures have been melted down to cast cannons and sometimes bronze cannons have been melted to cast statuary. If you want to try to match alloys and you are curious about what type of bronze alloy was used in a historic building, give us a call. We can help.
Q: What is the difference between a handrail and a guardrail?
A: Handrails are at hand height and are generally intended for use as guidance and support. Handrails are generally 34” to 38” tall. Guardrails are designed to resist accidental falls so guardrails are 42" or more in height. For some applications, the guardrail can have a handrail included in the design.
