Forged Railhead Replication For Partick Pumping Station Restoration Project in Glasgow
Brooks Forgings specialise in the replication of decorative ironwork components required for historic restoration projects throughout the UK and beyond. The production of forged railheads is a specific specialty of ours and can be offered as single units or forged directly to the bar in required overall lengths to minimise fabrication time.
Our latest replication project was for a customer involved in restoration work at the Grade B-listed Partick Pumping Station located in the city of Glasgow, UK.
The existing fencing had to be repaired or completely replaced in sections and required the replication of two railhead designs that matched the original aesthetics.
Brooks Forgings designed and produced tooling to hot forge the replacement railheads required for the project, all supplied as single units to be welded into the final fabrication and installed on-site by our customer.
A total of 410 pieces of each railhead variant were supplied in support of the project (820 total).
