Sansin Protects Laycock Park Pedestrian Bridge in Calgary

March 2021 —–
Laycock bridge

NATURALLY PERFECT® WOOD PROTECTION

The City of Calgary’s Laycock Park Pedestrian Bridge in Alberta, Canada, features two 37-meter (121 foot) glulam girders made of Alaskan Yellow Cedar — fabricated by Western Archrib and installed by Volker Stevin. The bridge replaces one that partially washed away during a flood, reconnects the city’s north-south regional pathway, and creates neighborhood access to the parking lot. The design team, Parsons Inc. and FAAS Studio Architect, selected a three coat system from Sansin comprised of KP-12UVW and Precision Coat SDF and Precision Coat SDF Topcoat to protect the girders. Sansin products were selected for their ability to repel moisture, protect from UV exposure, hinder rotting, and withstand extreme weather conditions. Sansin finishes not only beautifully protect the bridge, but also are environmentally-friendly to meet strict requirements.
