Custom Fabrication Saves the Day at Orlando International AirportClick on the Image to Enlarge the illustration
The Orlando International Airport needed to replace water coolers that had been installed several years ago. That sounds simple enough, but they faced two problems.Click on the Image to Enlarge the illustration
The first problem was that any new coolers installed would leave the airport with a gaping hole surrounding those new coolers. That would add additional construction costs and labor to patch and paint the hole on top of the cost of the new coolers.
Their second problem came courtesy of the old mounting brackets already in the wall. Those old brackets didn’t match up to the brackets in the new coolers. You may have stumbled on problems such as these yourself.
The Orlando International Airport decided to go with Acorn Engineering water coolers to replace the old units. One of the reasons they chose Acorn® was our ability to solve both of those problems through custom fabrication. Acorn Engineering Company® is not just in the business of making water coolers. At any given time at our factory, we are making stainless steel toilets, sinks, cabinets, fixtures and more. As a result, we have the resources and know-how to tackle stainless steel custom fabrication whenever it’s needed.Click on the Image to Enlarge the illustration
To first solve the problem of the gaping hole in the wall, we created a stainless steel panel that perfectly matched the new water coolers. As you can see from the picture the panel looks less like a patch over the hole, than it does a design feature. Solving the problem of the mounting brackets was as simple as modifying our water cooler brackets to match up with what was already in the wall.
Instead of having to tear open the wall further to install new mounting brackets and then deal with the additional costs of doing extensive patching on the walls, it was just your basic water cooler installation.
At Acorn Engineering Company, we believe customers should not be forced to adapt their environment to the product they are installing. As specialists in custom stainless steel fabrication, we can adapt the product to fit your environment in an aesthetically pleasing way.
