Temple Emanuel
Manhattan, New York
Historical Ornamental Bronze Pocket Door Restoration

In the summer of 2007 we performed a complete restoration of the 4 sets of Bronze Doors at Temple Emanuel in Manhattan. In the process of this project we engineered and fabricated a custom overhead track and trolley system for three of the four entrances which at the time were almost impossible to move due to the worn out parts.  This project also required the custom fabrication of eight flush-bolt mechanisms four recessed door pulls.
