Brass Bar Suppliers and Their Customers

You may not immediately realise it, but brass bars are in fact everywhere you look. Not surprising at all, considering just how useful brass metal is to a wide variety of professions. As such brass bar suppliers are never in want of custom, and they provide their goods to a wide range of customers throughout Britain and the world. But seeing as you’re currently on the internet, possibly bored or else possibly procrastinating from studying for your finals, let’s have a look at the sorts of uses brass bars are put towards. Because why not? It’s not like the internet is going anywhere tomorrow.

Brass bars are of course primarily used in bars. Heck, where do you think the name comes from?

But why is that? The answer is actually rather simple. You may have noticed that across bars throughout the United Kingdom, and indeed throughout the world, there are often metallic bars that run across the base and along the upper perimeter of the bar itself. Their use is quite utilitarian, not just decorative. The lower bar is intended to be used as a foot rest for patrons sitting on high bar stools, whereas the upper bar is for stability. After several hours of drinking, people can often get a little unsteady. The bar, therefore, provides a solid grip for the patron to keep himself from falling over and creating a disturbance.

Brass bar suppliers have thus found a healthy customer in pubs and other drinking establishments for as far back as the Victorian era. In fact many of the older pubs probably still have the original Victorian brass bars still attached.

Other uses that brass bar suppliers have been able to cater to are public handrails. Nowadays stainless steel is preferred, but in the past before it was invented, brass was the go to metal for anything metallic that would be exposed to the elements. Brass, after all, is highly resistant to corrosion, and as such it is ideal for being left outside.

Brass was likewise used in the construction of essential ship parts, as well as for the parts of engines. The high heat resistance and corrosion resistance of brass made it highly effective in keeping engine parts stable during use.
