Albi Products Used: Albi Clad TF, Albi DriClad

This project was the new construction of an animal feed processing plant. Albi Clad TF was applied to the structural columns and braces in order to achieve a 1 hour rating. TF was chosen because of its clean aesthetic appearance providing a smooth, durable and easily cleaned surface.

For the roof beams and deck, Albi DriClad was an ideal solution. Aside from having a much cleaner look than SFRM, DriClad eliminated the need for masking off the surrounding areas, thus allowing all other work to continue during installation. As a result the production schedule was shortened.
