LGM & Associates Releases the Latest Commercial Flooring Report

Product and installation failure, as well as, environmental conditions compromising flooring materials are common occurrences. Despite the fact that the vast majority of floor covering materials get installed without incident, the small percentage that fail can have a devastating effect on a project. The costs of product and installation failure can reach into the millions of dollars on one job. Not the kind of problem you want to have.

As far as the product being able to perform – that’s something that can be controlled, but rarely is. Specifying flooring, regardless of what type, is generally the job of the designer or architect and a manufacturer’s sales representative. The decision is most often based on aesthetics and not necessarily how well the product will actually perform.

Mats Inc Introduces New Logo Matting: Graffiti

INSTALL Alliance Partner Wagner Meters Introduces Rapid RH L6 SystemMats Inc.’s Graffiti matting effectively and beautifully reduces debris and particulates from entering buildings and improves indoor air quality in settings where style, durability and low maintenance are equally important.

Available in 17 neutral and bold colorways, Graffiti is made from 100% polypropylene fibers and combines the moisture wicking and cleaning benefits of walk-off matting with the luxurious appearance of plush carpeting. Mats can be produced in nearly any shape and size from standard rectangles to more elaborate forms to accommodate areas such as revolving doors, reception desks and especially large entrances and lobbies. The material can be used to produce mats that feature logos or custom designs for branding opportunities.

Logos and designs are cut using water jet technology to create crisp, clean lines. Experienced artisans meticulously assemble and securely fasten each component to deliver superior quality loose-lay matting that is ideal for Class A buildings, healthcare facilities, hospitality settings, multifamily residences, restaurants, retail and more. “Graffiti was created with urban environments in mind and for the opportunity to inspire artful entrances,” said Annie Ingraham, Product Manager at Mats Inc. “It’s a practical matting collection for easy custom design.”

Keene’s Driwall Rainscreen 013-1 Drainage Mat Mitigates Residential Moisture Damage in Orlando

INSTALL Alliance Partner Breslin Strategies' Presents the Top Attribute of High Performing TeamsA subdivision of town homes is now undergoing a major remediation project caused by stucco and siding failures. Many town homes have been damaged by moisture intrusion caused by poor details and a lack of drainage. After legal battles and upset homeowners, the Home Owner’s Association (HOA) is taking action by replacing all cladding and adding Keene’s Driwall Rainscreen 013-1 for additional protection. The HOA has chosen Keene due to name recognition as the premium provider of rainscreen.

Keene’s thinner Driwall Rainscreen 013-1 has many features and benefits that make it a stand out in the market today. The product is lightweight, easy to handle, and installs simply. Additionally, Driwall Rainscreen 013-1 absorbs and releases no moisture, preventing the promotion of mold, mildew, and bacteria. Keene’s building envelope products are the perfect solution for moisture control.

Driwall Rainscreen 013-1 is Keene’s newest, thinner drainage mat for exterior wall systems. The entangled net product eliminates incidental moisture problems in most exterior veneer applications, including stucco, manufactured stone and plank siding.
