Nike Factory Store – Detroit Stairwell Wall

One of our most recent printing and engineering successes has taken up residence at Nike’s Detroit Factory Store.

The new graphic required high-level design and prepress file preparation, onsite surveying and measuring, CAD drawings for installation purposes, direct printing on a premium grade plywood, CNC routing, clear-coat spraying for longevity, and precision installation of hundreds of hanging cleats for secure installation. Custom crating was also required to assure the wall pieces would arrive from our Portland printing facility to Detroit, Michigan without damage, as well as easy access to panels for an organized installation.

The installation included: temporarily removing handrails for wall access, precisely installing a reverse-cleat system for hanging the series of 45 heavy wood panels, perfectly aligning all panel seams with shims, and onsite cutting of holes to fit around the existing pipes, electrical panels, and fire alarms. The finishing touch was to install dimensional script lettering on the top landing wall and replace all the hand railings to complete the request.

We couldn’t be more pleased with the finished product and we are proud of the impact this new wall is making in Nike’s Detroit Factory Store.
