A Grand Junction-based company has manufactured and installed a nearly 50-foot-tall aquarium in a Hong Kong hotel.

Reynolds Polymer Technology supplied the cylindrical aquarium that serves as the central design element in the lobby of the Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel.

“It’s been a true pleasure to see our highly engineered acrylic come to life in the Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel,” said Mark Johnson, vice president of global sales and marketing for Reynolds Polymer. “This water feature provides guests with an engaging sea life view right within the Ocean Park facility. From vision to concept to execution, our experienced team goes above and beyond, and that couldn’t be more true with this undertaking.”

Reynolds Polymer assembled the aquarium with 14 pieces of 7.5-inch thick acrylic bonded with seven vertical bands and one horizontal band. The aquarium measures 49-feet tall and 20 feet across. The saltwater aquarium contains nearly 2,000 fish.

“Working with such a powerful brand in hospitality such as Marriott is an honor.
And sharing in their vision for this masterful component provides guests with an unmatched experience and connection to nature while staying in this beautiful location,” said Michael Wong, Asia Pacific sales director at Reynolds Polymer.

Reynolds Polymer has completed a total of more than 2,000 installations of acrylic panels in 60 countries around the world, including a 130-foot indoor waterfall at the Changi Airport in Singapore and the LUX-ZEPLIN experiment in South Dakota to detect dark matter.
