5. PRODUCT INFORMATION

Unless specifically stated otherwise, all products are cast from very high grade, Class 30, gray iron.

Heritage Cast Iron USA gates and railings are extremely heavy and professional handling and installation is strongly recommended. Heritage Cast Iron USA products all require a footing or installation into a masonry or concrete substrate. Consult with your local building engineer, masonry professional or building code authority for guidelines on proper footing designs for your specific soil and climate conditions.

Product specifications, dimensions, capacities, weights, etc. are kept as up to date as possible but are also subject to change without notice. For specific product information or measurements, a Heritage Cast Iron USA representative should be contacted.

Heritage Cast Iron USA makes no warranty respecting the merchantability of the products or their suitability or fitness for any particular purpose or use. Our products are not suitable for use as pool barriers or fall protection. Consult your local building code authorities with any concerns about a particular application.

There might be slight dimensional variations which is inherent in a sand cast product. These variations are minimized to the greatest extent possible. The fence and railing panels use the same traditional tongue and groove method to interlock today as they did in 1890. Gaps between panels can be expected from 0 – 3/16th of an inch typically. The gaps are not considered defects, they aid in allowing for thermal movement, and are not the responsibility of Heritage Cast Iron USA to remedy. To minimize the gaps to the greatest extent possible, it is important that the railings be set on to a smooth and level coping or footing by an experienced tradesman. After installation is complete, the gaps may be caulked as desired during the painting process.
