Clean Board * a-fabco, inc. manufacturers and stacks the boards face to face and lead to lead, which keeps the oxidized lead from rubbing off. Your installer will appreciate this extra production step which keeps the drywall clean and makes his job easier. The document “All Lead Drywall is Not The Same” details why a-fabco lead drywall is superior.
Identification * Each board is stamped with the lead thickness on the face making it easy to verify when installing. Edge color coding allows specific board thicknesses to be identified even in a flat pile.
Bonding * Our process bonds the lead to the drywall with a special water dispersed contact cement which means no VOC’s or noxious formaldehyde fumes that tend to accumulate in drywall storage and installation areas.
These unique a-fabco features are coupled with FED. SPEC. QQ-L-201F lead, fresh drywall, one 2″ wide lead batten strip and 50EA lead screw cover discs per panel** to form one quality unit ready for installation.
Schedule of Commercial Lead Thickness and Weight * This table will give you an overview of lead sheet thickness with mathematical conversions.
**Lead screw cover discs may not be required according to following report. See NCRP Report #147.
