Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, IRON ROOF OF THE COE BRASS MANUFACTURING COMPANY, AT TORRINGTON, CONN. ^^^HE CUT on the opposite page shows a plan and cross section of an iron roof built by us in 1886, for The Coe Brass Manufacturing »^® Company, at Torrington, Conn., and covers probably the finest brass rolling mill in this country. The main rolling mill is 233 feet long and 118 feet wide, and the muffle room is 252 feet long and 51 feet wide, the two connected by a 24-inch brick wall, with arched openings of 30 feet span. The trusses of the rolling mill are designed to carry heavy shafting, and besides, are made sufficiently strong to lift rolls in and out of the housings, avoiding the necessity of using other support than the roof trusses. The purlins on the rolling mill are of wood, and on each side, for nearly the whole length of the mill, there is a skylight, placed in the same plane as the roof covering, which affords sufficient and ample light through the center of the mill. The roof over the muffle room is made entirely of iron—iron trusses, iron purlins, and covered with corrugated iron, so that there is not a particle of wood work about the muffle room to catch fire. Supported by the wall between the two buildings, there is a large sewer pipe, which takes off the waste water of the valley between the two buildings every ten feet, and being located inside the mill, there is no danger from its stopping up during freezing weather. On page 70 we show an illustration of the rolling mill roof taken from a photograph. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
