Niagara Parks Dept
Niagara Falls is a world famous collection of 3 massive waterfalls that combine to create the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world. Located on the Canadian and U.S. boarder, the falls attract tens of millions of tourists every year and is a leading source of revenue for the Niagara Falls (Ontario, Canada) economy. To support this tourism, the parks department constructed a large infrastructure of walkways, sitting areas and viewing platform adjacent to the falls. All along these areas are steel handrails, outdoor seating and tables, signs, lights and other park fixtures. Due to the enormous amount of moisture, and constant exposure to the surrounding water environment, the parks department is constantly battling to maintain the integrity and appearance of these fixtures. Typical paints and other coatings are not sufficient to protect the steel substrates in such a corrosive environment - so a more durable, longer-lasting solution was needed.
