Crenshaw collaborates with world-class lighting designers and architects on some of the most demanding engineering and fabrication campaigns in the trade. Our team of designers and engineers continue to lead the industry in offering solutions that delicately balance leading edge technologies with aesthetic appeal while maintaining compliance with NRTL regulations.
LAB & TESTING
Crenshaw goes beyond UL and CSA requirements to test and verify that electrical components are safe and will perform at their maximum life. Crenshaw’s in-house CSA Certified Manufacturer’s Testing Laboratory (ISO/IEC 17025:2017) is fully accredited by CSA under OSHA’s Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) program to perform testing and listing onsite in our facility, and by Underwriters Laboratories to label for UL general coverage.
Through the use of a broad spectrum of high quality materials, our specialists can achieve virtually any finish; from a mirror polish to richly textured patinas. Crenshaw proudly preserves traditional hand-applied patination methods to produce fixture finishes that age beautifully over time.
Our industry-leading fabricators showcase generations of experience and knowledge in each facet of the building process. Our processes meld traditional handworking skills using more conventional manual tools, including breaks, rollers, saws, and scroll benders with cutting-edge technology, including an automated waterjet and state-of-the art CNC milling machines.
Our lead gaffer and glass artisans create original hand-sculpted glass elements and historically accurate replications. Our unique ability to achieve dimensional accuracy and fabricate our own molds is significant when it comes to producing glass that is beautiful, historically pertinent, and distinct in design.
