CH#027 - The Phelan Building



The Phelan Building
San Francisco, CA





The Challenge:

To lock down and abate Lead-Based Paint on the exterior metal trim with a minimum of surface disturbance.


Benefits Desired:

  • Class A Fire-Rated
  • Easy to Apply
  • Minimize Hazardous Waste Generation



A GLOBAL Encasement System was chosen as the solution for this task. This historic 1910 building is located on Market Street in San Francisco, where there is a great deal of pedestrian traffic.
The ease of material application with little preparation resulted in a minimum of disturbance of the Lead-Based Paint. R.I.P.™ Rust-Inhibiting Primer was used to spot prime any rust. PrepLESS Primer was then applied to lock down all peeling and flaking paint. Custom tinted LeadLock Topcoat completed the System.
