Title: APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR REMOVING STRUCTURAL PARTS OF A BUILDING WITHOUT CONTAMINATING ADJACENT AREAS
Abstract:
The invention is directed to a pollution abatement apparatus for use during a polluted window frame (13) or other polluted structure's removal in order to prevent toxic material from entering the inhabited areas of the building. The apparatus (33) includes a rigid unitary member (34) adapted to fit against the polluted structure within the interior of the building to surround the polluted structure in an air-tight manner (42) as the polluted structure is being removed from outsided the building. The rigid unitary member is capable of being height adjusted (62-64) and clamped between the floor and the ceiling after 'rough' and 'fine' height adjustments have been made.
