Nestled in the midst of a tropical paradise, the Reef Plaza is also subject to one of the most corrosive environments imaginable. The aquamarine waters and sunny beach location of the concrete plaza floor are susceptible to harsh sun, beating rains, and briny saltwater - making the steel rebar within the concrete susceptible to aesthetic and structural damage such as cracking and spalling.
By utilizing hot-dip galvanized steel rebar, the architect of the project was protecting the plaza from the inside out. The rebar will be protected from the nicks and scratches acquired during handling, meaning the pieces will enter the concrete ready to protect against the rust and corrosion that can cause spalling. Galvanized steel rebar will keep this plaza structurally safe and aesthetically pleasing for many years of tropical delight.
