"Protection of Vital Machinery: . Several hundreds of small incendiary bombs weighing about 2 lbs. each can be carried by aircraft and releleased over a small area. These bombs, when dropped from a height of 1000 feet, will pierce the ordinary type of roof, and would ignite on the floor of the top story. / The danger of these bombs cannot be over-estimated, particularly in factories containing inflammable or explosive materials. The ideal protection is afforded by the use of Durasteel Panels bplted to a Tubular Steel Structure forming a Protective Roof. Durasteel is a Composite Sheeting of Compressed Asbestos, faced with Steel Sheets, giving great strength. Design and Prices submitted on application to our Scaffolding Department.".
