KANSAS CITY, Mo., January 28, 2016: Family-owned Livers Bronze Co. is marking its 70th year in business by introducing new handrailing designs, a Revit family file system, and field measuring using laser scanning. Today, the 3rd generation of Livers is at the helm of the Kansas City-based company, which has become the nationwide leader in handrailing product design with manufacturing capacity that is second to none.
“Being one of the few companies in the U.S. to manufacture handrailings from the initial design to engineering and installation, we have the facility, equipment and know-how to allow for more imaginative systems. Combined with our focus on functionality and eco-consciousness, our systems are distinctive and innovative,” explains Deuce Livers, president.
In conjunction with the 70th anniversary, Livers Bronze published its latest product catalog featuring the company’s distinctive railing systems, including the latest designs and innovations. In addition to all of the new systems, custom design is always an option for those who want to put their unique signature on a commercial project.
Since 1946, the company has introduced some of the most cutting-edge features in railing systems. Illume is its latest. Illume LED lighting highlights any architectural style, and this energy efficient technology is an option with any Livers Bronze handrailing design. Illume LED fixtures are fully integrated and recessed into rails, making them a popular choice for exterior and interior applications.
In 2016, Revit family file systems, and field measurements using laser scanning will join the Livers Bronze lineup of industry-leading offerings.
Revit family systems’ customizable parameters allow control of the height and rotation of a handrail’s balusters, glass line and supports. Once unpinned, balusters, glass line and support elements slide on the host rail to the desired location, with the visibility option of turning them on or off or copying if needed. Revit files will be available for all Livers Bronze railing systems, and architects will be able to download the files then drop them into the actual project drawings.
Field measuring via laser scanning is even more accurate compared to traditional methods using tape measures. A dimension may be shown on the construction drawings, but the actual dimension may vary, from very small to large increments, depending on jobsite conditions. Field measuring allows for greater accuracy in manufacturing, installing the railing system and proper fitting. It saves time and money, ensuring the system is accurate when it arrives on the jobsite without requiring field modification.
“What continues to set us apart is our steadfast focus on handrailing system innovations, especially since handrailings manufactured overseas are homogenized. Livers Bronze stands for American-made quality and ingenuity. Our staff’s combined years of experience in handrailing design, manufacturing and installation totals nearly 1,000 years,” states Deuce Livers.
