Northwestern Community Hospital Entrance Canopy
Arlington Heights, IL United States | 2009
The roof system on this $70 million retail center in Lehi, Utah, was designed with a glass atrium canopy over the walking areas to provide shelter to shoppers from weather usually found to be severe in winter.
Hot-dip galvanizing was the clear choice.
First, it was imperative this structure have a beautiful and functional coating. The large roof trusses needed a system to protect the structure from corrosion due to its open-air design, and to provide a good substrate for a matching finish paint to blend with the surrounding architecture. Hot-dip galvanizing was the clear choice. Secondly, a hot-dip galvanized coating was specified given the trusses two-piece installation requirement and structural performance of the trusses themselves. Other coating systems could not provide the durable inside out protection afforded by hot-dip galvanizing. And lastly, due to the limited access and high elevation of the trusses, the coating assures the project to be virtually maintenance free, keeping the bustling 225,000 sqaure-foot mall operational and beautiful for its high profile retail tenants and their customers.
