In the foothills of the Franklin Mountains in El Paso in Texas, Camp Cohen is one of three new waterparks celebrating the culture of the city’s diverse communities. Parkhill Architects were appointed by the City Authority to design them and Camp Cohen was the first. It was decided to use Abet Laminati’s MEG exterior grade laminate for this exciting and creative camp-themed park which includes water slides, a toddler pool, lazy river and more amenities for all ages.
MEG was specified as the architects were looking for wood effect cladding which would complement the camp theme and which could be cut into planks to simulate a cabin. It was also heavy duty enough to cope with the sustained usage and the extremes of sunlight and temperatures which can easily range between -2°C in the winter and 35°C in the summer. As a result, MEG 754 Padouk was seen as the perfect solution.
This visual plank look can now also be achieved with the newly-launched and competitively-priced Easy MEG siding product.
Camp Cohen is another example of MEG in action where the need for high performance and durability is married up with low life-cycle costs, aesthetic design and resistance to weathering. The range comprises 58 colours and 29 woodgrains together with five concrete and metal effect finishes.
MEG is a self-supporting high pressure laminate (HPL) for cladding the exterior of buildings, balconies and other applications. It features high resistance to temperature, climate shock, weathering, UV light and impact.
