HERITAGE RANGE – Sandcast moulds from Victorian Era in Aluminium
This range of lacework are IDENTICAL copies of the old cast iron panels found throughout Sydney, from the Victorian Era (late 1800’s – early 1900’s).
We are still using century old patterns to create our sand moulds. These moulds are then cast with molten aluminium which gives them an identical appearance to the historic cast iron (but with all the benefits of aluminium).
The panels in this range are single sided which means they are flat on the back/inside. This is how they were traditionally made.
They are also much thicker than a die cast panel giving them a more traditional look and this is what Central Foundry have specialised in over the past 40 years.
1 METRE HIGH PANELS – Sand Cast Moulds in Aluminium
In early 2015 Central Foundry were able to use new technology to increase the size of some of the existing Heritage Range Panels to 1 metre high in order to comply with Building Codes Australia. This technology has enabled us to retain the exact proportions of the original Victorian Era panels so the increased size does not detract from any of the original features.
Our main reason for developing this new range was to eliminate the need for a bottom rail as the increased height achieves B.C.A compliance without having to “lift up” the panels to make them 1 metre high.
Moving forward we hope to expand our range of 1 metre high panels as they are proving to be quite popular.
DIE CAST LIGHTWEIGHT RANGE – Aluminium
These range of panels are a more cost effective option. They are DOUBLE SIDED which means they are identical front and back. They are much thinner and less traditional looking and were mostly used on more modern homes throughout the 1980’s.
We have four designs that have been in production for approximately 30 years.
