The Mayson is a new boutique hotel in Dublin’s regenerated Docklands, incorporating two protected buildings on the city’s North Wall Quay – a traditional dockers pub and a 19th century warehouse. A ‘Corten-like’ finish was required for the exterior metal fins on the roof top terrace. Powdertech Evolution™ powders emulate metal patination and include a range of ‘rusted’ finishes. The client chose one of the brightest – ‘Sahara’ and Powdertech coated 2,100 linear metres of aluminium to form 150 vertical fins for the upper storey of the building. For added protection in this marine environment a marine grade epoxy polyester primer was applied after a high etch-rate pre-treatment.
