Barrier Presents at FIRE 2009 Conference in Chicago

Last week, Barrier Technology's National Sales Manager, Jim Dukart, participated in a Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Products Panel Session at the FIRE 2009 Conference in Chicago, IL.

Dukart was one of five panelists on the WUI group, and one of only two companies that is currently selling product in California based on fire code changes in the Golden State enacted in 2008. Barrier sells it Blazeguard Fire-Rated Sheathing as an ignition-resistant sheathing for exterior walls as well as ignition-resistant under-eave and/or soffit material for California wildfire zone construction. Barrier currently has distribution and product on the ground in both Northern and Southern California, and have seen growing interest on the part of architects, builders and code officials throughout the state.

Blazeguard is listed as an ignition resistant, exterior wall siding and sheathing and under-eave product on the California State Fire Marshals' WUI Products List:

In addition to the WUI Panel, Dukart displayed Blazeguard product information and samples in the conference's exhibit hall and attended two full days of conference sessions, ranging in content from insurance company perspectives on fire-retardant building materials and practices to emerging "green" technologies in the fire-retardant market.

The conference was produced by Principia Partners and its full program sponsor was Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
