New Products

Door Display Saves Space
EMES Display Emes Marketing Inc. of Toronto has introduced its new K-La shower door display. The company considers it the ultimate in space savings because it holds 14 shower doors in a space no wider than 3½ feet.

The company says the displays are lightweight, easy-to-assemble, inexpensive and low-maintenance. Shower doors roll from side to side in the display, using their own top rollers. Multiple displays can stand side by side or back to back. 

Pilkington Pyrostop™ Earns Bullet-Resistant Rating
Technical Glass Products of Federal Way, Wash., recently announced that Pilkington Pyrostop glass with 3M SCLARL 400 film now offers the advantages of security as well as fire protection. Pyrostop has received a Level III bullet-resistant rating, indicating it can stop a .44 Magnum bullet.
Pyrostop is considered a glass fire wall, according to the company, and makes an excellent alternative to a solid wall, allowing the use of unrestricted amounts of glass. It is fire-rated for up to two hours, passing the hose-stream test.

Timberlake Introduces Two New Brands
Timberlake-RUSHMORE_CHERRY_CHOCOLATE Timberlake Cabinet Co. of Winchester, Va., recently introduced its Portfolio and Portfolio Select brands of cabinetry. The lines offer finely crafted cabinetry in solid oak, cherry, maple, hickory and contemporary white thermofoil. With a variety of upgrade options, including open shelving, decorative valances, appliance panels and detailed moulding build-ups, these almost semi-custom cabinets create a distinct, personalized look in any home, according to the company. Raised- and recessed-panel cabinets with expensive-looking touches, such as hidden hinges and hidden glides are standard on all styles. Solid hardwood drawers with full-access glides come standard on Portfolio Select cabinets.

Product Speeds Subfloor Installation
Georgia-Pacific Corp. (G-P) of Atlanta recently announced that its G-P Plus® Plywood Sturd-I-Floor® now features the new APA—The Engineered Wood Association designed Quick-Fit™ tongue and groove (T&G).
G-P is one of the first plywood manufacturers to incorporate the Quick-Fit T&G design into its plywood Sturd-I-Floor product line. 

With the new design, the wider groove opening allows the individual panels to fit together much faster than before, improving labor productivity, according to the company.

In addition, the company says the design has passed all the uniform, concentrated and impact-load tests to verify building code compliance for strength and deflection. Great cross-band inclusion in the tongue design helps the product resist damage during transport.
