Commercial Modular Sales Volumes exceed 21,000,000 sq. ft.

The concept of using Barrier's Pyrotite™ technology as part of a fire-rated commercial modular roof deck assembly in partnership with Mule-Hide Products began back in 2002 and 2003. Upon successful completion of fire testing, Class A and Class C Roof Deck Assemblies were listed with UL (Underwriters Laboratories). In 2004, Barrier began to manufacture and private label the FR Deck Panel for Mule-Hide with ABC Supply Company as the primary distribution source.

In Year 1, sales exceeded 1.5 million sq. ft. In Year 2, sales grew 87% to almost 2.8 million square feet. The following year sales grew another 36%, exceeding 3.8 million sq. ft. In 2007, the FR Deck Panel began to evolve into the "product of choice" for a growing number of modular manufacturers. Sales grew another 58% to exceed 6 million sq. ft. The economy and the battered construction industry did impact sales in 2008 - but we still sold about 5.6 million sq. ft. Total sales volume into the commercial modular sector from inception in 2004 through May 2009, have exceeded 21,000,000 square feet.

The FR Deck Panel has secured a large market share among the commercial modular manufacturers. That, coupled with recent break-throughs in Canada and large government projects, presents strong potential for increased sales as the economy begins to slowly recover.
