The tallest steel building in the West belongs to New York with an assist from Hamilton’s wooden carts.During the past – and final – two years of One World Trade Center’s construction, New Jersey distributor Colonial Hardware geared up contractors with dozens of our hardwood platform carts.
Unlike traditional steel-deck carts, a wooden surface protects loads – usually construction supplies – and defends pricey glass curtain walls from scratches and dents.
Mold-on, smooth rolling rubber wheels won’t damage floors before tenants move in, which include residents and businesses like Condé Nast and China’s Beijing Vantone.
And with running gear arranged in a tilt-type diamond pattern, electricians or HVAC technicians can maneuver carts in cramped spaces with ease.
Set to open by late November 2014, the 1,776-foot skyscraper trumps Willis Tower by a few hundred feet. Sorry, Chicagoans. At least the battle for pizza supremacy is still up for debate.
From One World Trade Center to Your Living Room
Kick your feet up on a piece of American and Hamilton history. We build and sell coffee table versions of the same carts used at One World Trade Center.
It’s the perfect industrial-chic centerpiece for a living room or man cave. Plus, it’s just as durable as our factory carts, so pile on all the beer, coasters, candles, TV remotes, and books you’ll never read.
