There are multiple reasons to work with the MiniContainment system. On this page we list a few of our recent projects.
With use of MiniContainment, fire retardant panels are removed for a client in the central region of the Netherlands. Usually, this kind of removal jobs are postponed until tenants are moving out. During this project however, the residents were sitting in the kitchen nicely like it was any other day. Two fire retardant panels were removed simultaneously; one ground floor and one on the first floor. If it were for a traditional enclosure, probably a significant part of the home had to be cleared, being of tremendous inconvenience for the residents.
Ducts and pipes leading through the roof of a home are often isolated with a highly dangerous asbestos rope. Usually the rope is hidden behind a packing seal, but during refurbishment works like carpeting this seal is often removed, exposing the rope. To prevent any chance on contamination, the client had the asbestos ropes removed with the use of MiniContainment.
The MiniContainment method has proved to be very efficient and effective in this matter. MiniContainment is safe and effective even for the highest risk jobs.
MiniContainment is used regularly during renovation projects, i.e. from housing corporations. The corporations are endeavouring to make their neighbourhoods more sustainable. During this work, window sills have to be removed before new window frames, with multiple glass layers for isolation purposes, can be installed. For this type of removal job, MiniContainment fits perfectly.
Tenants are no longer required to empty their living rooms, the workers only need 1.5 meters of free space. This is more convenient, especially when an asbestos containing material is located in the bed room. Beds and closets no longer have to be removed or broken down.
A neighbourhood located in the central area of the Netherlands was subject of a large refurbishment project. During the project, the boilers were replaced. Before this could be done, the fire retardant panel (AIB board) had to be removed first. Normally, this would be a tricky performance, since the DCU could not be placed at the tight attic. MiniContainment saved the day and the tenants were excluded from exhausting work of cleaning out the attic. On the photo you can see the MiniContainment being attached to the ceiling.
When a kitchen has to be taken out, an asbestos containing duct can be exposed. With MiniContainment this is cleaned out safely and efficiently. The advantage, for both the contractor and the tenants: the kitchen was kept clear and could be used as a transit route for the workers.
On several locations in the Netherlands are facades and panels removed. This is usually is part of the process to improve the isolation. When the panels are mounted on the inside, they have to be removed within an enclosure. Our MiniContainment system proves itself to be ideal for the job.
During a refurbishment is can occur that a sill must be removed. Building up a full enclosure in the bathroom and the hallway is not an easy task. MiniContainment is ideal for using in confined spaces.
