A Marvel of Engineering: The Technical Marvels

The JOCO Playground Large Metal Letters are not only striking in appearance but also impressive in their technical specifications:

  • Size:  Each letter stands at an impressive 9 feet tall by 10 feet wide and 4 feet deep, making them larger than life and impossible to miss.
  • Material:  Crafted from high-quality metal, the letters boast durability and resilience, ensuring they can withstand the rigors of outdoor play and the elements.
  • Design:  To add a touch of whimsy and playfulness, each letter is leaned and elevated off the ground, allowing for the placement of foam mats underneath.  This unique design feature ensures safety and comfort for children while encouraging imaginative play.
  • Slip-Resistant and Durable:  The letters are designed with slip-resistant and durable features, providing a safe and inviting environment for children to explore and play.
  • Craftsmanship:  Crafting these massive letters with such unique specifications required skill, precision, and creativity.  Our team rose to the challenge, bringing the vision to life with meticulous attention to detail.

The Fun of Fabrication

Creating large metal letters of this caliber is no small feat.  WhiteClouds employed a blend of cutting-edge technology and old-world craftsmanship to bring JOCO’s vision to fruition.

  • Design:  The process began with meticulous design work.  Every curve, every angle, and every detail of the letters were carefully considered to ensure they matched the university’s vision and branding.

  • Precision Cutting:  Once the design was finalized, WhiteClouds used state-of-the-art CNC (Computer Numerical Control) plasma-cutting machines to cut the metal with pinpoint accuracy.  This ensured that each letter was a perfect representation of the original design.

  • Welding and Assembly:  The individual components of each letter were expertly welded together, forming a seamless structure.  Attention to detail during this stage was crucial to maintain the letters’ structural integrity.

  • Surface Finish:  After assembly, the letters underwent meticulous surface preparation, including sanding and smoothing, to create a flawless canvas for paint application.

  • Painting:  The choice of two-tone automotive paint added an extra layer of sophistication.  This paint not only protects the metal from the elements but also gives the letters a glossy and polished finish.

  • Quality Control:  Throughout the fabrication process, rigorous quality control measures were implemented to ensure that each letter met the highest standards of craftsmanship.  Any imperfections were rectified before the final installation.
