Formerly known as FlatWrap HP, the new and improved FlatWrap UV is specially designed for use with architectural designs that incorporate open joint claddings. When used in conjunction with a rainscreen, it provides superior bulk water drainage, vapor permeability and durability. The product features a high performance tri-laminate design with superior UV resistance versus typical weather resistant barriers. In addition, the product has a vapor permeability of 35 perms, and has been proven to increase tear and wind load resistance for jobs over 40 feet. Available in 500 square feet rolls, the product can help significantly reduce both material and labor costs. The product does not require seams to be taped and its black color makes it virtually invisible in an open wall assembly, enhancing aesthetic appeal. For more information, visit benjaminobdyke.com.
The Xtra Capacity boom lifts are designed to work in more applications that require higher capacities. All XC booms combine the benefits of a dual-envelope design to provide an unrestricted range of motion with a platform capacity of 660 pounds and a restricted operating envelope capacity of 1,000 pounds. To support additional weight on the platform, booms are engineered with an updated boom structure that boasts increased performance, range of motion and envelope control, as well as a robust jib capable of easily handling the standard maximum capacity. Genie XC booms reduce the number of lift cycles, as well as the amount of equipment, operators will need to get tools and materials to work areas at height—doing more with a single unit saves time and increases productivity.

Formulated Joint Compound
Continental Building Products
The Rapid Deco Level 5 System helps ensure a Level 5 finish in less time than traditional methods. Comprising the company’s factory-applied skim-coated Bison Board drywall and complementary joint compound, the product takes the guesswork out of on-site applications by incorporating skim coating as part of temperature-controlled, industrial production. The joint compound is specially formulated to match the skim coat. Because the system requires very little time to refine the surface with joint compound after installation, it offers significant savings in comparison to Level 5 projects for which the skim coat is hand- or spray-applied in the field.
