Asbestos abatement work area partitions
The work area shall be segregated from the remainder of the work site by construction of temporary structural partitions as follows:
Partitions shall be constructed of conventional 2 x 3 (minimum) wood or metal stud framing, 16"CC maximum, to support barriers in all openings larger than 32 feet, except where any one dimension is 1 foot or less, or where openings are exits covered in subdivision (p) below.
A solid construction material (e.g. plywood) of at least d" thickness shall be applied to the work side of the framing. In secure interior areas where partitions are not subject to access from the public, an additional layer of 6-mil plastic sheeting may be substituted for the solid construction material.
The partitions shall be caulked/sealed at the floor, ceiling, walls, joints and fixtures to form an airtight seal.Courtesy of The City of New York
