the linq hotel
The Linq Hotel is more than a place to stay, it's an experience. In the heart of the Strip in Las Vegas, NV the hotel’s most recent renovation includes updated guest rooms, penthouses, and a casino containing the LINQ Promenade, a retail space, and a 550-foot tall Ferris wheel humbly known as the High Roller Observation Wheel. The hotel’s renovation is all part of the $1-billion investment by Caesars Investment Corporation.
LINQ’s custom Panel Grille module is a one-foot section composed of eight 3/4" thick by 2” deep wooden blades evenly spaced with dowels and wood backers, minimizing flex and allowing for an easy, direct screw attachment method. Floors 2-19 would be manufactured at 6’-11” and floor 20 would be manufactured at 7’-11'', barely fitting within the printer's size parameters.
A total of 27 3’x7’ panels were sent to print immediately following their manufacture. They were assembled and placed on the printer table; with the final artwork loaded, the printer printed and cured ink on the panels using ultraviolet (UV) light. Each digit spans three 12” wide modules, with a single 7” wide module creating space between double-digit prints.
Custom crates, made by Rulon’s shipping department, were fabricated to fit the pre-assembled printed panels for easy, consecutive installation at the job site.
