Baseball Hall of Fame, Main Entrance
Cooperstown, NY United States | 2008
Sun glints off of the elegantly twisted and turned poles of the new botanical gardens gate at Michigan State University, causing passersby to stop and consider the beautiful finish and form of this work of art. Intending for this gate to be a monument to the school for years to come, a durable corrosion protection system that would protect both the interior and exterior of the tubing elements was absolutely necessary. Hot-dip galvanizing was a natural choice for the people at Michigan State University for a few reasons.
... the long-lasting, sustainable protection and low maintenance benefits of HDG are unparalleled.
First, the long-lasting, sustainable protection and low maintenance benefits of HDG are unparalleled. Additionally, the zinc used in the galvanizing process is an abundant, naturally occurring element in tune with the environment the botanical garden is promoting. Special care was taken with the organically-shaped components to prevent any warping in the piece. An ultra smooth finish was also necessary so a flawless paint coat in tones of dark gray and gold could be applied to put the finishing touch on this outstanding piece.
