Since launching the first web app for steel framing projects in 2013, ClarkDietrich Building Systems has been at the forefront of technologies that better equip construction professionals with technical data and digital tools for the specification and purchase of steel framing systems. Today, the company continues this commitment to innovation with the launch of its newest version of the ClarkDietrich iTools app, which now features complete integration of ClarkDietrich’s industry-leading SubmittalPro system.
ClarkDietrich iTools was developed to help construction teams evaluate purchasing decisions and assist in product selection for steel framing projects. The user can access more than 500 data sheets at the push of a button, while the cost-saving calculators use project-specific data to provide an instant comparative pricing model for both materials and labor for many of ClarkDietrich steel framing products.
Through the iTools interface, users can also access the iProSTUD Interior Wall & Ceiling Lookup Tool, which gives contractors and architects the ability to calculate and filter wall assembly data by specific properties, including: wall design, wall assembly, limiting heights and ceiling spans, STC sound ratings and UL fire protection ratings. In addition, users can directly link to UL design reports and third-party STC sound tests.
Mike Murzyn, technical product and marketing manager at ClarkDietrich Building Systems, says iTools is the perfect complement for contractors, architects and specifiers who are on the go, but still want instant connectivity to data on specific components of their wall and ceiling systems. “The combination of our new dynamic, user-friendly interface with the integration of our SubmittalPro system has truly taken iTools to the next level. This tool is a comprehensive resource for anyone involved in the design, specification or installation of steel framing wall and ceiling systems.”
Through the use of iTools, building professionals can also navigate the various clips and connectors offered through ClarkDietrich’s Clip Express(SM) service, including the industry’s widest selection of clips and connectors.
“We’re bringing tools to our customers’ fingertips that will help increase their bottom line,” added Terry Westerman, vice president of marketing, ClarkDietrich. “We understand that efficiency on the jobsite is important and we strive to provide innovative tools that help accomplish this goal.”
ClarkDietrich iTools is widely recognized as the most comprehensive mobile tools for walls and ceilings professionals and was recently named one of the top apps in 2016 by Walls & Ceilings magazine.
