McCoy Natatorium Upgrades
The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA
Stahl Sheaffer Engineering was selected by The Pennsylvania State University to design a new fall prevention and railing system for the outdoor diving tower at McCoy Natatorium located on the University Park campus. The university wanted to encase the tower railing areas by CPSC guidelines for pedestrian use of elevated areas and update the look of the railing. Stahl Sheaffer planned and created a system to be attached to the existing protective railing that would prevent divers from slipping through the gaps of the stair risers or passing through the openings of the railing. The railing throughout the tower was also updated to OSHA standards for height and capacity and weatherized to prevent corrosion.
