September 11, 2011 – Westmore, Vermont –– KIMTEK CORPORATION was honored to be given the task of building a permanent display case for a piece of 9-11 history. A 105 pound I-Beam which was part of one of the World Trade Center towers had been donated to Barton Ambulance in Barton, VT. The case was built of aluminum diamond plate, tubing, stainless steel and plexiglass. It gives the viewer a five sided view of the entire I-Beam while protecting it from the elements and human touch given the contaminates that are still on the I-Beam. The display case was built to allow for hand transport to different venues for display so 4 stainless steel handles were added for ease of carrying the case.
Once it was completed, the I-Beam was displayed at a “Blue Mass” for local ems-fire-police responders held at St. Paul’s Church in Barton on the morning of September 11, 2011. It was then transported to a special VT state wide “Blue Mass” held at St. Augustine’s Church in Montpelier that same day.
The 9-11 I-Beam display will eventually be placed on permanent display in the foyer of the Barton Ambulance squad in Barton Vermont for all to see.
