Carpenter Steve Goforth puts the finishing touches on a plastic laminated wall recently installed next to United Airlines ticketing counter in Terminal 1.
Construction crews are putting the finishing touches on a shiny new wall recently installed next to United Airlines ticket counter in Terminal 1. The work is part of the final phase of renovations at all the airline’s ticket counters. Carpenter Steve Goforth added a little elbow grease rubbing down the wall to give it an extra shine. The wall is made of plastic laminate. Plastic laminate, or p-lam as it is referred to by construction workers, is easy to clean and if the panels are damaged in any way, they can be individually replaced. Once the walls are complete, doors will be added for employee access to their ticketing counters. The project is slated to be completed in two weeks.
