Construction Specialties Launches Re-designed Wall Panel Collection for New PossibilitiesTuesday, January 12, 2016
Construction Specialties (C/S), a leading manufacturer of specialty building products, has significantly redefined its Acrovyn® Wall Panelline using designer and installer feedback to align with market trends. The updated product line, which launches January 12, 2016, provides architects, designers and facility owners the opportunity to reset their wall panel standards with an extensive range of new design options that can be installed in half the time currently required.
Wrapped square-edge panels, beveled-edge panels, new trims for unfinished-edge panels and graphic printing enhance the ability to create bold interiors. The new collection also offers dimensional flexibility for custom shapes and unique configurations, made possible with the Sure Snap™ System, an easy, time-saving installation system. Historically, the installation of demountable wall panel systems, used mostly in healthcare, education and office buildings, was challenged by cumbersome clips and brackets. The Sure Snap System’s hardware and accessories reduce installation time by at least 50% and offer easy panel removal for routine maintenance and interior updates. Panels with wrapped edges can be spliced in the field, avoiding the necessity for trims and exact panel dimensions.
“We re-designed the Acrovyn Wall Panel line because we recognized a need to provide solutions that weren’t available in the market. With rapidly changing trends, it is important to create products that solve frequent problems related to design and installation. As a result, we now have a simplified panel system we can confidently offer our customers knowing it will significantly add value by reducing installation time and expanding the aesthetic options,” said Amy DeVore, Business Development Manager for the C/S’ Interior Wall Protection Division.
“The installation of Acrovyn’s new wall panels was a breeze and saved us a great sum of money on labor,” said Ron Hine, President and Owner of Interior Construction Specialists Inc., who incorporated the panels into a 96 square foot design for a feature wall in a conference room. “C/S did a superb job on the designs of the installation and the wall looks great. I would recommend the panels to designers, architects and facility managers who are looking for a streamlined installation process and the quality for which C/S is known.”
Acrovyn Wall Panels, a 3/8” substrate laminated with PVC-free rigid sheet, can be specified in standard sizes and a variety of thicknesses, from three-quarters inch to two inches. Classic or daring, any design can be accomplished with 68 Acrovyn solid colors, 24 Chameleon simulated patterns and Acrovyn by Design® high-resolution imagery. With Acrovyn by Design, customers can incorporate photography, branding and more across a series of panels. All finish types provide the same protection and durability that the industry expects from C/S’ award-winning Acrovyn Wall Protection. Embedded with a moisture-resistant barrier, the wall panels are UL (Underwriters Laboratories) Classified B/2.
