Charlotte/Douglas International Airport Business Valet Parking Deck — Charlotte, NC
Hot Dip Galvanizing has been specified for two previous, but smaller parking decks at Charlotte/Douglas Airport and the architect selected the coating again for continuity and previous experience with galvanized steel.
Hot Dip Galvanizing will provide decades of maintenance free service for all exposed steel of the building facia. Galvanizing provides excellent compatibility with the stainless steel panels covering the distinctive bow-string trusses.
