The FIU Golden Panther is front and center, ready to greet the tens of thousands coming to the Century Bank Arena. The GKD etching process was used on the entrancer panel to achieve the branding objective of the University. This tensioned flexible metal fabric panel, and those flanking it on either side, also provide transparent solar management facading. Because of proven hurricane force wind capability of the fabric and attachment designs, GKD is the first choice in architectural metal facades in the Southeast USA.
