Upon arriving at the Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden in Dallas, Texas, visitors are greeted by the garden’s decorative entrance gate and archway. This structure, which gives guests a first impression of the garden, is protected with a high-performance coating system, which allows the archway to maintain its pristine appearance.

Dattner Architects of New York, New York, who took up the task of designing the skywalk, stressed the importance of having an effective and durable coating system early on in the project’s development.

Tnemec coating consultant Phil Gonnella of Righter Group, Inc. stated, “Dattner Architects, who have been specifying Tnemec for decades, were looking for a durable system that would work on steel and galvanized metal.” He continued, “These architects consider the coating system in a project’s embryonic stages and really sweat the details.”

Completed in 2013, the entrance gate required the work of multiple experts based across the country.

Justin Taute, a coatings consultant with Tennessee-based NexGen Coating Resources, explained, “The project required considerable coordination among agencies across a wide geographic area.” He added, “The inter-agency cooperation between the Righter Group in the Northeast and the Barry Group in the Southwest was very instrumental in getting this project completed.”

The ornamental metal archway, embellished with leaf-shaped accents and a brightly-colored sign that reads “Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden,” received Tnemec’s Series 1078 Fluoronar Metallic, a high-solids fluoropolymer coating. The high-performance coating, which utilizes Lumiflon FEVE resin technology, offers structures resistance to water, salt, and UV radiation. Additionally, FEVE resin-based coatings provide excellent color and gloss retention, and high durability, which ultimately keeps a coated surface in outstanding condition for decades.
