6 Bell Version
Shown - All Bells Visible
6 and 8 bell versions or to suit existing towers
allows a disused chimney or similar existing tall, cylindrical
building to act as a bell-tower. This design has been specifically
created with buildings like derelict mills in mind, and allow the
sound of bells to be heard within areas not normally containing
towers, such as centres and suburbs of former mill-towns.
The number of bells it is possible to install
depend upon the dimensions of the chimney and also the size and
diameter of the bell. There are therefore customisable aspects of the
MBR Mill-Chimney tower that can be altered so as to design a peal of
bells exclusively tailored to an individual chimney's specification.
There are two
installation options available for this design:
- Bells can be installed into existing mills
and chimneys with the layout customised to suit the needs of each
- Existing chimneys
can be extended and altered as necessary to fit the required number
- New chimneys can be built to MBR Ltd
specifications. These are built as shown on the left, with the width
and height of the building beneath being dependant on the area's
requirements. These towers are available in 6 or 8 bell versions. 8
bell towers can be built and fitted with 6 bells by request.
Fitted with standard MBR Multi Ropes and MBR
steel bell frames. Standard weight is 12 Cwt. but can be altered at
request. For existing structures, surveys must be carried out to
ensure the maximum load-bearing capabilities of the tower. The bell
weight can be altered as necessary after this survey. Pricing includes
standard 3 year maintenance contract.
