CH#031 - Long Island Lighting Company (Corrugated Metal Building/Transite Panel Roofing)



Long Island Lighting Company
Corrugated Metal Building/Transite Panel Roofing

Garden City, LI






The Challenge:

The need for a cost-effective solution to fiber release from deteriorated corrugated Transite roof panels and preservation of the aged and badly rusted metal wall panels.


Benefits Desired:

  • Class A fire-rated
  • Long-lasting solution
  • Little or no surface preparation
  • No hazardous waste generation
  • Impact & abuse resistant
  • Cost Effective



A GLOBAL Encasement Class A Fire-Rated AsbestoSafe® System was chosen for the metal walls and the Transite roof panels. The rusted metal wall panels were treated with R.I.P.™ Rust-Inhibiting Primer followed with AsbestoSafe® TopCoat. The Transite roof panels were in good condition, no primer was needed. The airless spray of AsbestoSafe® TopCoat did not disturb the Transite fibers, thereby eliminating the need for containment, other than overspray protection.
GLOBAL Encasement’s simple, secure solutions met and exceeded all of the building owner’s requirements.
