Fountain Grating in Downtown San Diego
Project Location: San Diego, CA
Bar Profile: B12 Bar | .188" opening
Architect: Walker Macy
Nestled in the heart of downtown San Diego, Horton Plaza Park was recently transformed from a vacant commercial site into an outdoor entertainment hub for the city’s social life. The urban plaza has been programmed to host more than 200 public events a year. The architectural firm, Walker Macy, called on Hendrick to design and manufacture the grating that outfits the central water feature.
The stainless steel grating is made of Hendrick’s award winning and proprietary Profile Bar. The B12 profile selected and the 3/16" slot openings ensure that the grating meets all of the project’s requirements, including the H-20 truckload rating and ADA compliance. The inherent flatness of the Profile Bar’s design guarantees the surface is safe for barefoot traffic. The grating also features a sandblasted finish to enhance the slip resistance properties. Properly positioned cutouts align with the interactive jet nozzles and under-mount lighting to create a treasured display.
