Gene Snyder U.S. Courthouse & Customhouse – Louisville, KY is honored to work on custom optical turnstiles and barriers for the Gene Snyder Federal Courthouse and Customhouse., Inc., Valiant Construction and DB Screening Station are working to conserve the historical building through the construction process. For instance, instead of drilling any holes for wiring, the Turnstiles will be built on a raised platform secured by archival adhesive to protect the original flooring.

The Optical Turnstiles are to be made in alloy 280 Muntz metal, a brass distinguishable by its light antique copper color. Our master fabricators build these units with the goal of complementing the surrounding architecture and increasing the building’s security position.

Muntz metal is a form of brass made of about 60% copper, 40% zinc and a trace of iron. It is named after George Fredrick Muntz, a metal-roller of Birmingham, England, who commercialized the alloy following his patent of 1832. Wikipedia
