Custom Coal Forged Storefront
LOCATION: New York, NY
DESIGN: Coal forged steel and glass doors
A Serett Designed blacksmith store frony inlay in a tubular construction store front with hald inch safety glass for sound dampening. The design was to follow a traditional 1800s type of design.with a custom made entry door handle. The interesting part about this project was the emergency exit door that was required by law, needed to have a panic bar exit door handle which would have been detrimental to the look of the store front from the inside.
The solution was to hand blacksmith a panic bar that would have looked traditional to the time period. Hand forging custom made springs and a paddle resulted in a legal panic bar.
