Standard Practice in Sheet Metal Work

Available in CD Only

1st edition, 1929, 771 pages: More than a historical look at custom architectural sheet metal, this publication contains a graphic collection of system designs, including pattern layouts representing the Old World practices in the industry that have been developed over generations and proven over decades of use. With today’s emphasis on restoration, refurbishing, rebuilding, retro-designs and retrofitting, architects will find this publication more than of historical interest. Architectural sections include elaborate cornices, skylights, domes, spires, spun balusters, gargoyles, marquise, storefronts, metal buildings and metal roofs. Additional chapters cover heating and ventilation systems including gravity furnaces. Blowpipe sections cover design, layout, construction and equipment.
