Entech Creative

672 aluminum and stainless steel flats were cut individually, scenic hand painted and installed to decorate the three buildings in The Little Mermaid area of the Art of Animation Resort. The shapes ranged from bubbles, to waves, to eels, to seahorses, to angel fish, to dolphins 22’ long. The variety and placement of the flats makes the area and each building unique.

For the installation of the metal flats, the Entech Innovative Team developed an innovative process to make installation go smoothly. Since there are 672 metal flats, each with an average of 7 holes, 4704 holes had to be drilled. In addition, each hole had to be in a precise location calculated by engineering to line up with its specific mounting point. To expedite and simplify the process in the field, the engineers sent the coordinates for each hole location a Kindle Fire used by the install team in the field.

Among the metal flats are 22' dolphins made of three layers of 5/8" steel welded together.  The edges were rounded by hand to prevent injury.
