Play Ball! San Diego’s Petco Park Features StrongBox Products
Date Posted: October 11, 2018
When Landscape Designer Lance Sweeney, President of Sweeney & Associates was completing work on San Diego’s Petco Park Baseball Stadium, home of the Padres, his choice to specify StrongBox products from VIT was an obvious one.
“They simply make the best box,” says Sweeney. “It’s well-engineered and in my opinion, definitely the best in the industry. Every detail and design feature is very thought out. It’s an active design process with them. The quality of the seams, the straight welds, and the uniformity of the surface’s shine and smoothness speak volumes about the company’s commitment to quality,” he says. “I like that the door is strong and locking and doesn’t leak, which is very important in protecting the controller equipment inside.”
Sweeney has been specifying VIT StrongBox Enclosures and Backflow Cages for more than 20 years. He says his team will routinely go out to a property where they have designed irrigation systems and find a 15-year-old StrongBox Enclosure still holding up and looking great.
“We’ve had no complaints,” says Sweeney. Along with the enclosures at the stadium, Sweeney specified a back flow cage in the small park just to the north of the ball field. “StrongBox has truly become an industry standard because they are made so well and have an impressive warranty that they always stand behind.”
Sweeney & Associates have been designing irrigation systems for more than 25 years. Typical projects where StrongBox products are specified include parks, school campuses, multi-family condo complexes and any project that requires a controller outside.
“I believe you get what you pay for,” says Sweeney. “When you purchase something that is made well and very durable, you know it’s going to last. Quality is important and that’s what VIT StrongBox offers.”
“We have worked with StrongBox for more than 20 years and have been very happy with their products and service. There are three key reasons why we use StrongBox for all of our back flow enclosure needs:
- Outstanding local support through their Sales Representative Kevin Evans. That goes a long way with me. If I need anything or have a concern, Kevin is easy to reach and willing to help me.
- Great product with a terrific warranty. When I have had a problem, it always became a non-issue. They just take care of it the first time.
- Great workability. My contractors like them because they are easy to install and they do the job they were designed to do.
I highly recommend VIT StrongBox and will continue use them for all of our projects.”
