In the heart of Los Angeles, Lincoln High School faced a silent but hazardous challenge – the looming danger of delaminating and flaking lead-based paint over Robertson decking in the boys' and girls' gym.

As concerns mounted, hope emerged through an innovative solution that not only tackled the threat head-on but also embraced green, environmentally advanced principles.

The Challenge:

Imagine a school with peeling lead-based paint posing a potential risk to students and staff.

The urgency to abate this threat was real, and the responsibility fell on finding a solution that not only rectified the immediate problem but also aligned with environmentally conscious practices.

Enter the challenge: to eradicate the toxic Lead Based Paint issue without creating new environmental hazards.

The Global Solution:

Enter GEI (Global ENCASEMENT, Inc.), a name synonymous with cutting-edge solutions and eco-friendly innovations.

Their popular LeadLock™ System emerged as the hero in this tale, providing a comprehensive and effective approach to managing in-place the lead-based painted surfaces at Lincoln High.

Benefits Desired:

The school's checklist of benefits was clear – a green and environmentally advanced solution, a Class A fire rating, no hazardous waste generation before, during, or after application, low VOC’s, no odors, minimum surface preparation, and a long-term solution.

The task was not just to meet these expectations but to exceed them.


GEI's LeadLock™ System delivered on its promise.

The system design, featuring PrepLESS Primer™ to secure loose, flaking paint, and LeadLock™ TopCoat, not only met but surpassed all the school's desired benefits.

From being a potential hazard, the painted surfaces were now transformed into a safe, long term and environmentally conscious shelter for students and staff alike.


The transformation at Lincoln High School stands as a testament to the power of innovative solutions and GEI’s 30 year commitment to environmental responsibility.

In the face of a challenge that could have jeopardized the safety of many, GEI’s LeadLock™ System emerged as a signal of progress, turning toxic threats into a triumph of eco-friendly safety at the heart of Los Angeles.

Here are the highlights:

Revolutionizing Safety: Lincoln High School overcame the threat of lead-based paint with GLOBAL Encasement, Inc.'s groundbreaking LeadLock™ System.

Eco-Friendly Triumph: The solution not only tackled the toxic challenge but embraced green, environmentally advanced principles.

“When you concentrate much on the faults, you shall be at fault. When you always focus on the solutions, you shall always be a solution. Don’t just find faults; be a solution digger! You shall definitely meet some faults in your journey to digging for a solution, but mind your true purpose: solution! Don’t just find faults; be the solution to the problems you see!”
