Black mold can occur in any area prone to moisture putting residents at risk of persistent headaches, fatigue, memory loss, chest pains and more. While many people might not see the effects of black mold for years, the administration of a VA Hospital had to spend excessive time and money preventing the possibility. The VA hospital's compressors produce condensation that builds up in the tanks and splashes on adjacent walls. In addition, the water filtration systems can leak causing the need for drywall in those rooms to be re-placed frequently.The customer required a seamless water-resistant barrier on the walls up to three feet high in some areas to prevent splashes from rotting the drywall while containing potential floods in these areas.
In certain parts of England the treated potable water is stored in underground reservoirs prior to being distributed to homes and businesses. These underground tanks are typically constructed of concrete or brick/block with a concrete reinforced roof. The land above these reservoirs is used for purposes such as farming which includes the use of fertilizers and chemicals. Constructed 30 to 40 years ago, the concrete roofs of the reservoirs have become porous potentially allowing dirty rain water and farming chemicals to penetrate the concrete and enter the drinking water. The customer was looking for an effective long term solution of sealing the reservoirs that did not require rebuilding or taking them out of service.
Consumers are expecting more luxuries out of their vehicles than ever before. One of the most important things expected from vehicles is a quiet ride. To accommodate consumers, most vehicles are equipped with sound-deadening insulation.Unfortunately, the insulation is inadequate, allowing road noise into the vehicle. This is both annoying to the passengers and lessens sound quality from the stereo system.Traditional aftermarket sound deadening options include foam or foam-like squares that break down overtime and require messy adhesive to apply. These options also require sections to be pieced together,which is often rough and leaves gaps for noise to pass through.Vehicle owners looking for a solution to this noise problem are turning to LINE-X.
A catering company invested in a specialized rig to use during sporting events - a 53 foot commercial kitchen on wheels! While the kitchen is state of the art, the floor was not. Over time, the original vinyl tile floor began to loosen. The loose tiles got in the way of the crews feet as they moved throughout the kitchen creating a safety hazard. Additionally, the areas in the floor with missing tiles were unsightly and hard to clean. As a result, the health inspector was very critical of the floor’s condition. The catering company risked failing a health inspection if the floor was not fixed. The catering company chose to remove the entire vinyl floor. Instead of replacing it with a new vinyl floor, they chose to use a tougher, more durable option.
King’s Daughters Medical Center in Kentucky had problems with the safety and sanitation of their shower stalls. The showers were tiled, a slip hazard in this wet environment. The grout was unsanitary, holding onto moisture and creating an environment where mold, bacteria and other germs could grow. The tile was easily damaged from hospital equipment. Once damaged, moisture seeped behind the tile causing the drywall to deteriorate allowing mold and bacteria to grow in the wall. The hospital required a solution for the shower stalls that would provide: 1) A seamless floor-wall-ceiling membrane. 2) A slip resistant surface texture on the floors. 3) A smooth and easily cleanable walls and environment that would inhibit fungus and bacteria growth a durable. 4) A long lasting solution an aesthetically pleasing, uniform, and with color.
Sheep pens are regularly exposed to urine and feces that must be allowed to drain to keep the pen sanitary. Additionally, the floor of the sheep pen must be even and level.Traditional pen flooring consists of precisely spaced wood or metal slats that allow waste material to fall through, but these floors are difficult to clean and can allow straw bedding to fall through as well.To keep with the look of his house and the neighborhood, the owner of a small flock of sheep constructed a pen to look like a shed. The floor was made of standard plywood with several 1” drainage holes. The owner needed protection that would prolong the life of the pen floor by protecting it from the sheep urine and feces.
