Material: 35PL84 S100 PressLock Urban Steel Fence Galvanized and Powder Coated
The All Wars Memorial Building had its grand reopening in April 2008 after an $11 million renovation and expansion jointly funded by Atlantic City and the CRDA. The new playground addition required a secure perimeter that was visually open yet strong and durable. For this purpose PressLock Urban steel fencing was used as a fence system installed between brick piers. The PressLock Urban fencing was also used as single and double swing gates with ornamental fabrication. The playground also has several areas for shade where the PressLock Urban fence material is used as a trellis system above.
OGI Architectural Metal Solutions manufactured, fabricated and finished the fence materials and provided fence posts, gates and hardware. Fence panels were 5'-6" in height and 4'-2" in width with a mesh opening of 2-3/16" x 5-1/4". All in-line fence posts were 2" x 1/2" steel flat bar galvanized and powder coated to match the fence. Posts were core-drilled and embedded at 18" typical. Gate assemblies had a typical 2" x 2" HSS steel tube miter cut and welded. Gate posts were a 4"x4" HSS steel tube embedded 24" in concrete. All fence material utilized the PressLock fence mounting system with a welded mounting bar at top and bottom. This bar has extended formed arms that meet the posts and have an aligned, slotted hole to facilitate installation. The material has withstood the rigors of an inner-city playground and has allowed for a safe, secure outdoor area for the youth of the community.
