North Miami, Florida
Type of project:
- Marine buildings
- High wind structure
- Oceanfront buildings
Unique needs for this project:
- We had to meet the Miami Dade County NOAs.
- These metal wall panels were 3 custom colors.
Our role in the project:
Our metal wall panels had to meet their stringent codes in Miami Dade county. We also had to get the custom colored wall panels created and there on time to meet their deadlines.
Feedback from our customer:
The builders of Haulover Marine Center were very appreciative and are using it as a showcase piece. The Project Manager called days before hurricane Matthew to confirm that the millions of dollars of boats in storage would be safe during the hurricane. He just wanted to confirm that the panels would hold up. We said as long as you installed it according to the guidelines you will be good to go, and the building held up fine!
Why our product was a great choice for this project:
While most metal wall panels are made from a 26 or 24 gauge steel our STK1000 embossed wall panels are made from a heavy duty single skin 20 gauge steel. This offers a far greater resistance to damaging winds. Also, these panels were a more cost effective solution on this build. Finally, the custom colors on the wall panels allowed Haulover Marine Center to have a unique branded look for their building.
