Historical Art Deco Brass Entrance

f2 industries, Inc. recently restored the south entrance of a historical Art Deco building in central Illinois. The 1928 building was commissioned by one of the largest insurance companies in the country. The facade had never been maintained. Because of its condition, the entire entrance was removed, restored at our facility and re-installed.Entrance door frames were in extremely bad condition and required extensive restoration. All bronze parts were mechanically cleaned and the core of the vertical frames (wood) were replaced with high density urethane. The transom grids were replaced substituting the original single pane glass with double pane thermal glass. The interior of the entrance was also refurbished.
