As you enter into a hospital facility, it may never occur to you the extensive use of metal, particularly perforated metal, that surrounds you.
As you walk through the parking garage, you may notice that there are profile bar drain gratings for water to flow into. This will prevent water pooling up throughout the parking garage. They may be situated in the middle of each level of the parking garage. Rather than take the elevator that could actually have also been made of a perforated steel product, you decide to walk down the steps. To ensure that each visitor arrives safely at the bottom of the parking garage, the hospital had perforated stainless steel steps created. The traction that the perforated steel creates helps their visitors arrive safely.
Upon exiting the parking garage, you look up to notice the perforated metal sign displaying the hospital’s name and even their logo. Hendrick, a leader in perforated and fabricated metal, can work with the customer to develop the custom pattern and even the finish of their unique, eye-catching sign. Many visitors will depend on a flashy sign to guide their way to the proper facility.
Underneath the sign, stands a tree. To prevent falls from growing roots and to also allow for equal watering, a square or even circle shaped grating is custom fit around the tree’s trunk. Nearby several bushes also have the same circle shaped grating. The design, size, and distance apart of the perforated holes can be chosen by the customer. Hendrick will work with them to create a functional piece that will withstand the elements of weather.
Beside the tree is a breathtaking water fountain. People throw their loose change into it as a good luck token for their loved ones in the hospital. Coming up through several custom sized holes is a steady stream of water. As the water starts its descent back down, it goes through hundreds of tiny perforated holes.
As you look to the hospital, you notice that the massive windows are protected by custom-sized sunshades. While the windows allow a look into the hospital’s main lobby, the sun can be problematic for the workers inside. Hendrick will work with its customers to create the perfect sunshade that will help protect the nurses and doctors inside.
Heading toward the revolving doors, you may look to your feet to ensure your safe passing through them. However, Hendrick has designed a walk-off mat for revolving doors that will add stability and traction to your passage. Inside the hospital, a curved receptionist’s desk shows off the perforated metal pedestal holding it up.
In just a few moments from the parking garage to the hospital’s main lobby, many perforated metal products can be seen. Hendrick can custom create quality products that will meet the needs and standards of any of their customers.
