Strong Man Building Products

New Products for Masonry Contractors

Strong Man's string reinforced polyethylene sheeting eliminates costly delays in sand-blasting and brickwork, by shielding personnel and property inside scaffolds and work areas from inclement weather. The string reinforced poly sheeting utilizes high-tensile strength and flexibility, functioning as a protective weather barrier for personnel and masonry equipment inside an enclosure. It is also cost-effective, remaining functionally intact, even during extreme temperatures. Employing wider, thicker scrim, Strong Man's string reinforced poly allows personnel to work in a clear, high-visibility weather enclosure. The wider scrim lets greater amounts of light pass through the sheeting and remains intact when cut. For more information, visit www.StrongMan.com or call (800) 950-6999.

The brick face dimensions remain at 2 5/8" high by 9 5/8" long and still has a lay-up factor of 4.8 brick per square foot.
