A Class A Fire Rated GLOBAL Encasement, Inc. System was installed providing the building owners with a safe, highly impact and seismic resistant, durable, long lasting system. The products used included award winning PrepLESS PrimerTM and AsbestoSafe® TopCoat.
Abatement was performed in one weekend and owners reported that the job paid for itself in saved maintenance costs over a twelve month period.
