Barrier goes "SIP"-ing in New Orleans

Barrier was proud to be a Silver Sponsor of the 2008 Structural Insulated Panel Association (SIPA) Annual Meeting and Conference this past week in New Orleans.

Barrier offered information on Blazeguard as a fire-rated coating on the inside-facing panel of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) for use in energy-efficient and labor-saving commercial and residential construction. In particular, Barrier is targeting commercial, industrial and institutional SIPs construction, such as use in the roof of an Ohio prison dormitory. Blazeguard's 20-minute thermal barrier and Class A flame spread rating make it an ideal fire treatment for this type of construction, obviating the need for gypsum wallboard on the inside face of SIP walls and roofs.

The 2008 SIPA Annual Meeting and Conference featured seminars on the energy efficiency and eco-friendliness of SIPs as well as the continued growth of the SIPs industry.

Information on Blazeguard was well-received at the show, with Barrier quoting Blazeguard-on-SIPs for restaurant construction in Georgia, residential building in Mississippi and a government building in Pennsylvania. Numerous architects, designers and panel manufacturers in attendance collected case-study information on Blazeguard-on-SIPs for use in future projects.

Barrier Sales Manager James Dukart has also joined the SIPA Supplier's Committee as well as SIPA's newly-formed Commercial Marketing Sub-Committee.
