The Skaneateles Community Center is located in an affluent community along Skaneateles Lake in Skaneateles, New York. The community center was designed to give the residents a place for winter activities and keep cabin fever to a minimum. The center contains an ice skating rink, pool, meeting rooms, game rooms, basketball courts, and a cafeteria.
The architect wanted a uniform appearance that flowed from the humid indoor pool area to the cool ice rink, while the owner wanted a long-lasting center that could withstand the constant traffic of excited children. The architect specified a duplex system of hot-dip galvanized steel for its corrosion performance in the humid, acidic (chlorine) pool area and in the low temperature of the ice rink, and paint to maintain a uniform appearance throughout the center.
All of the railings were galvanized and then painted, and other structural components were galvanized as well. Because of the high visibility and heavy traffic of the railings, all the galvanized material required a very smooth finish to prepare for the paint coating. The durability the duplex coating provides will give the Skaneateles community a long-lasting, corrosion-free center to cherish for many years into the future.
