Perry Street Wharf
|If you ever find yourself driving from New Orleans to Gretna on Business 90, look out the passenger window and you will see Fabral Hefti-Rib in custom color Ivy League. Located on the opposite side of the river from the CBD and the French Quarter, the Perry Street Wharf is undergoing quite a transformation. Featuring Hefti-Rib in 24 and 22 gauge with clear translucent panels, this structure supports the sustainable initiative. As a restoration project replacing old corrugated siding, special considerations had to be made in order to keep the original concept of the structure intact. Fabral’s ability to color match was a perfect fit for this need, creating custom color Ivy League, aka Gretna Green, used for this project. This project is a great example of Fabral’s capabilities.
Located right on the Mississippi River, this Perry Street Wharf Shed is currently warehousing rubber used for GoodYear tires in about two thirds of the facility. The remaining space is used to repair any damaged ships that come through the wharf. Being right on the water, certain gauge specifications had to be used to meet wind load and hurricane requirements.
Fabral’s excellent support team was a big deciding factor in K-Belle’s selection process. Never having worked with Fabral products before, they were incredibly impressed with the support they received from both the Customer Care division and their sales representative, Brian Selig. Brian even visited the site several times to offer installation instruction and advice in the use of the materials provided by Fabral.
