The United Kingdom has gained prominence in setting world clocks due to its Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) standard, but the country’s most popular clock is probably “Big Ben.” Since 1858, “Big Ben” has helped the citizens of London, England keep time. Located at the Palace of Westminster, this clock is the largest four-faced chiming clock and third-tallest free-standing time-keeping tower in the world. Amazingly, the time clock is not really very old compared to the long history of the City of London.
Augustus Pugin designed the “Big Ben” tower and clock in the Gothic Revival style making it stand 315 feet (96 meters). The base of the clock is Anston Limestone with 334 limestone stairs to the top (there is no elevator or lift). The “hour” hand measures 9 feet (2.7 meters) and the “minute” hand measures 14 feet (4.3 meters) long. Like a stained-glass church window, the clock dials are surrounded by 312 pieces of opal glass.

Worst of all, should your equipment falter it could potentially cause damage to your property, to the environment or put your staff/customers at risk. Continue reading
