Transcript THE BERLIN IRON* BRIDGE COMPANY, CASTING SHOP ROOF FOR THE NEW HAVEN COPPER COMPANY, AT SEYMOUR, CONN. r^^HE CUT on the opposite page shows the general construction of an iron roof built by us for the New Haven Copper Company, ® J^ at Seymour, Conn., from designs of Robert W. Hill, Architect, of Waterbury, Conn., to cover their casting shop. This building is composed entirely of brick and iron, the side and end walls being of brick, and the balance of the construction being entirely of iron, so that there is not a particle of wood work anywhere about the building to catch fire. At the point where the furnace is charged, the platform is supported by the roof trusses, so that workmen can charge the furnace with ease and dispatch. The contour of the ground outside is of such a nature that the raw material is delivered directly from carts to the platform in front of the furnace door. The large amount of gas arising from a furnace of this kind, necessitates thorough ventilation, and the main portion of the casting house has two wrought iron ventilators, with swinging shutters on each side, opening and closing by cords from the floor, and directly over the platform above the charging door of the furnace, there is an open dormer in the roof, which allows free and uninterrupted ventilation. For this class of buildings, the plan as shown commends itself to the consideration of manufacturers. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
