Beacon Pavilion Kayak Enclosure

Location: Beacon, New York
Customer: NS Associates
Project Owner: Scenic Hudson Land Trust, Inc.
Architectural/Engineering Firm: Architecture Research Office

Project Overview: 2400 SF of 32ADT4, 1-1/2” x 1/8”, class I clear anodized finish fabricated with custom designed aluminum framing system for gates and fence of an open air kayak enclosure.

Originally a transportation link between New England and areas west in the 19th century, Long Dock in Beacon, New York, contained various industries such as ferry terminal and an oil terminal. A rehabilitation project for the Scenic Hudson Land Trust was undertaken to revitalize this area. The project includes an arts and environmental education center in a restored barn and a new kayak shelter. The kayak shelter provides storage for up to sixty-four kayaks, a storage area, and changing room.

Due to the proximity to the Hudson River and its relatively high saltwater content, aluminum was used in the construction of the kayak shelter. Ohio Gratings’ aluminum dove-tail grating was chosen by the designer for the strength of the product and open air capabilities. The intent was to create open air structure that was secure for privately owned kayaks. Weatherability (aluminum) and the ability to air dry the kayaks (open air) were the driving factors in the selection of the aluminum grating.

The kayak storage structure includes 2,400 SF of 32ADT4, 1-1/2” x 1/8”, Aluminum Dove Tail Grating; with a class I clear anodized finish. The grating was also supplied with a custom designed aluminum framing system to support the gates and fence panels.
