Two reflecting pools located on the footprints of the twin towers, boasting the country’s largest man-made waterfalls, are ringed with 152 solid bronze nameplates bearing the names of the victims. These backlit displays feature brass/bronze cutouts provided by MAC Metals.

All 2,998 names — those who died in New York, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania, as well as the 1993 World Trade Center bombing — were stencil-cut into the 5-by-10 foot panels by Service Metal Fabricating of Rockaway, N.J.

The process created hollow areas in the letters A, B, D, O, P, Q and R, which were filled with wafers cut and machined from a custom MAC Metals extrusion. MAC delivered 3,500 pounds of alloy C37000 free-cutting, leaded Muntz Metal in eight-foot bars for the project.

Bronze extrusions were the most economical way to complete this portion of the project,” said Jim Moretti, owner of Service Metal Fabricating. “It saved time and eliminated the machining costs of cutting each insert by other means. Even though each of the 14 profiles required separate extrusion dies, it was still the most economical method.”

The unique arrangement of the names on the panels — by the location of the victims on the day of the attacks — will help unite associated friends and families and provide what memorial architect Michael Arad calls a “meaningful adjacency.” At night, light shining through the panels will further illuminate each name.

Heating and cooling integrated within the panels ensures visitors can always make a tactile connection, whether it’s running their finger across a loved one’s name or making a rubbing. Designed by Jaros, Baum & Bolles of New York City and KC Fabrications of Gardiner, New York, the system circulates glycol through 14,000 feet of copper piping to maintain temperatures between 40 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit at all times. Because of its high levels of heat transfer and corrosion resistance, copper was the preferred material for this project.

Arad and landscape architect Peter Walker conceived of the memorial design. Photos of the site and panels, as well as an interactive name finder, are located at: http://www.911memorial.org/names-memorial
