Ductile Iron Castings in Construction

Ductile iron castings have gained popularity in building construction due to their mechanical properties and cost-effectiveness.

  • Complex Shapes: Easily produce intricate designs.
  • Cost-Effective: Lower production costs compared to other materials.
  • Durability: Strong and long-lasting for structural uses.

Ductile iron castings, in particular, have been used widely in building construction and design due to a combination of the materials’ mechanical properties coupled with the ease by which complex shapes can be produced at a relatively cheap cost compared to other production methods and materials. The relatively low cost of ductile cast iron along with the ability to produce highly complex shapes has led to its use in decorative and architectural castings such as street furniture, lamp posts, seating, fountains, floor grates, and railings.

Architectural Castings

Our castings are increasingly used in architectural projects, offering both functionality and aesthetic appeal.

  • Street Furniture: Durable and decorative options for urban settings.
  • Historical Reproductions: Accurate restorations of historical elements.
  • Modern Designs: Innovative castings for contemporary architecture.

Architectural castings are becoming more and more common as architects learn to integrate cast components into their building designs. Steel, Iron, and Nickel-base castings from Quaker City Castings have been used in numerous applications ranging from structural ductile iron castings to accurate reproductions of historical castings on historically important buildings. Using traditional pattern and mold-making techniques or advanced digital reproduction, new designs and historic cast iron or steel can be reproduced or restored accurately.
