Location: New Orleans, Louisiana
Customer: Manufab & Simms Hardin Company LLC
Project Owner: World War II Museum Foundation
Architectural/Eng: Voorsanger Mathes LLC
Material: Aluminum Dovetail was used in the handrails and ceiling grilles
The National World War II Museum included the use of various metal products through out the interior of the museum and was specific to metallic colors using silver and battle ship gray. We developed a product for the ceiling tiles and the handrail infill to specify a special spaced aluminum dovetail design that was light weight and easy to install.
The 34 piece aluminum dovetail handrail was composed of 493 sq. ft. (24-ADT-8) 1-1/2" x 1/8" and the 677 piece ceiling grilles were composed of 8500+ sq. ft. (48-ADT-4) 1-1/2" x 1/8" aluminum dovetail.
The materials used on this project were included in various parts of the museum including the USO Library, CafÈ Library, Temp. Pre Show Area, Theater Lobby areas and the Retail Information Areas.
