AVCON Thermoplastic Railings Add Beauty & Safety to Busy Resort
When Port Royal Ocean Resort & Conference Center began preparations for their 2017 busy season, guest safety was of utmost concern. Their 25 acre property features 210 beachfront condos that are continuously exposed to the harsh waterfront conditions of Port Aransas, TX, conveniently nestled between Corpus Christi Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Since they are located right on the coast climate conditions such as wind, salt, and humidity played a large role in deciding which materials they should use to upgrade and replace the railings on their property. We recommended they look into our AVCON Thermoplastic system, as we felt strongly that it would outperform their existing railings.
Port Royal ultimately selected two styles from the AVCON Thermoplastic system line – over 1,200 LF of Daytona stair & hand railing for 6 buildings, along with another 1,100 LF of 48″ high white “Malibu” style railings and gates for their extensive pool area. Not only did they upgrade the aesthetic look of their property, they can look forward to many maintenance free years of service from their project. This “worry-free” solution will keep their maintenance costs down while ensuring a pleasant and safe environment for their guests. Prior to upgrading their railings, Port Royal needed to do regular property walk-throughs and relied heavily on reports and input from their staff and guests. With such a large facility, it’s not always a good idea to wait until you can spot obvious visual damage since rust and structural damage can occur even when the outside of the railings look OK.
We caught up with Port Royal’s Project Management Office Manager, Priscilla Reyes who shared these words about their experience with working with Advanced Products; “The beauty and quality of the railings speaks for themselves. I would recommend AVCON to others. The staff has done a great job with taking care of Port Royal’s needs and requirements. They have taken a personal interest in our Resort.” They also noted that Advanced Products would be their railing company of choice for future projects and renovations.
Ms. Reyes also shared with us that one of her main safety concerns before, during, and after the project was ensuring their guests could continue to enjoy their stay until the railing upgrades were completed. By providing us with ongoing updates and feedback we were happy to work closely with their project team to ensure all deliveries and installation goes smoothly.
