The R-TEC CI System™ for ventilated rain screen constructions is an engineered solution to enable today’s design professional to meet the ASHRAE 90.1 definition for continuous insulation. The versatility of the R-TEC CI Bracket (patent pending) affords the flexibility to specify a wide range of exterior insulating materials from mineral wool and lower density foam up to the higher density foams. Additionally, the R-TEC CI Bracket is designed to facilitate the use of all types of exterior cladding whether that be metal panels, fiber cement facades or terra cotta tiles.
The corrugated fiber cement boards are used for both roofing and siding. These panels are completely weatherproof, have a high level corrosion resistance, and come in different corrugations and colors. As far as sustainability, these panels are maintenance free and have a life expectancy of at least 50 years.
Approved by the City of Los Angeles in the early 1990’s, these high-density fiber cement drainpipes are used under the sidewalk at the curb. They come in a variety of sizes to adapt to many different projects.
GlasticShield™ is a thin and lightweight composite panel that has been recognized by Underwriters Laboratory to meet their UL-752 Level 3 specificiations for bullet resisting plastics. GlasticShield™ has been rated to stop 240 grain (15.6g) .44 magnum lead semi-wadcutter gas check, minimum velocity 1350 fps (411 mps) ammunition in a variety of conditions and shot patterns at short range. GlasticShield™ is designed to provide protection from bullets and other projectiles. GlasticShield™ can be used in a variety of applications where personal and property protection is required or desired.
Foundry Service and Supplies offers two different counter-top materials: fiber cement and paper-based counters. The fiber cement counter-tops come in multiple through-colored sheets. These counters resist static discharge and offer excellent fire hazard classification. The paper-based counter-tops come in many through-colors and thicknesses. Many of the counters are FSC-Certified, GREENGUARD Certified, and/or are made from up to 100% post-consumer recycled content.
