When the inventor of the Conqra Apache first came up with the concept, he never in his wildest dreams thought that it would have been used within the asbestos encapsulation process.
Funnelling water from a minor leak
This image shows a Conqra Apache adhered to the underside of the Humpty fall breaker catchment sheet system Conqra Enviro uses when removing asbestos roofing in a live working environment. This innovative solution was sparked when a minor leak was detected in the plastic shrink-wrapping over a long wet weekend.
Tape a Conqra Apache to it to funnel it into a plastic waste bin to capture the runoff.
Encapsulating asbestos with the help of Apache
Typically when someone in the building industry sees a plastic sheet under a building they automatically think it’s been placed as a moisture barrier! Well, think again, as in this situation the Apache sleeve is being used in tandem with a 250-micron plastic sheeting as a form of encapsulation under a classroom where there are historically broken asbestos fragments from when it was constructed. The fragments have been embedded into the soil and due to the confined space of how low the building is to the ground, it was decided that encapsulation was the most cost-effective solution. The Apache’s were the ultimate solution for sealing around the timber piles and the groundsheet.
The third-party assessor was blown away by the innovative solution and quality seal.
