Cedar Impressions® Individual 5-inch Sawmill Shingles
An unparalleled polymer alternative to traditional cedar shingle siding featuring industry-first CedarLife™ color-through technology with TrueTexture™ molded textures and patterns, which simulate the exact look of natural cedar shingles sawn in a lumber mill.
SilentFX® QuickCut Noise-Reducing Drywall
A superior choice when compared to typical resilient channel or double layer wallboard applications, allowing acoustical control through a much less complicated installation process. It scores and snaps like regular drywall and achieves more reliable lab to field STC results when compared to traditional methods, where errors often occur when clips and channels are compromised at the jobsite.
A grand tour of a highly sustainable HQ
In conjunction with Saint-Gobain, CertainTeed is also hosting an event off-site at its new 320,000 square feet campus in Malvern on Wednesday, May 18. The building, aiming to be the first building in Pennsylvania to earn double LEED Platinum designation, also serves as a learning lab utilizing CertainTeed and Saint-Gobain company products. Attendees will learn about product selection and inspiration for occupant acoustic, thermal, and visual comfort; get a close look at the integrated design process of fire-rated glazing products; and discuss open office and ongoing occupant change management initiatives. Registration is required at convention.aia.org.
