Michigan State University Gate
East Lansing, MI United States | 2009
Home of one of the most universally known sports museums in the world, the Cooperstown Baseball Hall of fame is an extremely popular vacation spot. The handrail located on the front entrance of the building is passed by thousands of people daily. The original rails had become corroded and worn.
Paint alone was not enough to keep the Baseball Hall of Fame entrance welcoming. A face lift was needed, and a duplex system of hot-dip galvanizing (HDG) and powder coating was chosen for the job. It was essential the Baseball Hall of Fame entrance would have a lasting beautiful finish, the layer of HDG provides the sacrificial protection lacking in the original railing and the barrier system of power coating gives another layer against New Yorks corrosive elements. The duplexed protection of the Baseball Hall of Fame entrance will enable the railing to live a legacy parallel to Americas favorite pastime.
