ZIP-RIB® AND THE VALSPAR FLUROTHANE COASTAL PAINT SYSTEM

Jimmy Buffett spares no expense to ensure that his bars and restaurants are built appropriately for the specific targeted locations.  As you can see in the background of the above picture, the Atlantic Ocean is very close. As such the architect came to the conclusion at the urging of Thomas Company Inc., that the Merchant & Evans’ 16” ZIP-RIB® panel system was the proper panel system for this application. Further this system needed to be fabricated in .040 Aluminum and needed to be coated in the Valspar Flurothane Coastal Paint System to protect the Owners Investment by ensuring the project was warrantable for 20 Years for both Finish and Weathertightness

Once all the material, coatings and shop drawings were approved, it was then up to the Thomas Company Inc. out of Egg Harbor, NJ to proceed to communicate and coordinate their needs with M&E.  Their expert craftsmanship was needed to further ensure that this project will stand up to the elements of this marine environment. With an aggressive installation schedule, converting a new construction structure into a finished opened restaurant was not an easy task, but one that M&E and Thomas Company felt comfortable that we would meet expectations.

M&E’s engineering department developed a custom fabricated hip and valley package whereby every panel was marked for a designated area and that each panel was precut in accordance with the drawings in order to eliminate field cutting. Through the entire manufacturing process, coordination and communication between M&E’s manufacturing people and Thomas Company people allowed for timely fabrication of panels and trim, properly scheduled deliveries and installation schedules to remain on track for the opening of this facility.
