Parker Hannifin's Mansfield based manufacturing plant produces extruded Teflon hose, braiding a percentage of it for demanding aircraft and automotive use. A 4-story existing tower was expanded horizontally to accommodate a first floor cold room, which is used for storage and mixing flammable materials on their way to the extrusion process. Upper floors added office space, a training room, and a testing lab. The cold room is served by a loading dock with explosion proof dock leveller and dock door at one end, and a dumbwaiter at the other. Because the main public entry to the facility was 7' above grade, a long ramp was added to satisfy handicapped accessibility regulations. The addition utilized 53' tall tilt wall panels. High bay lighting in the manufacturing area was replaced to increase the foot candle level.
