MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec. 3, 2015 /CNW/ - CGC Inc. CGC the Canadian leader in building products solutions, is pleased to announce the introduction of its newest product portfolio: CGC Structural Solutions. The CGC Structural Panel Concrete Subfloor and the CGC Structural Panel Concrete Roof Deck are the first products in the portfolio.
"CGC Structural Solutions were designed with the structural engineer and the contractor in mind. The products within the portfolio facilitate simpler building processes in various construction applications," said Jeff Glancie, Marketing Manager, CGC Industrial and Specialty Substrates. "The products' noncombustible formulation, dry application process and ease of handling on the job site are just a few of the product benefits."
From mezzanines and mid-rises, to platforms and roof decks, CGC Structural Panels provide the versatility of wood sheathing and are the only noncombustible structural cementitious panels listed by Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL). In addition, the expanded distribution network increases the availability of the CGC Structural Solutions portfolio, ultimately making it easier to get the product
to the jobsite.
The new CGC Structural Solutions portfolio, and the rebranding of CGC Structo-Crete® Structural Concrete Panel, better position the products to meet industry demands for noncombustible structural panels. When compared to poured concrete decks, structural engineers will find that CGC Structural Panels can significantly reduce design loads, thus reducing overall building costs.
Both of the initial products in the portfolio offer the following benefits:
- Creation of one- and two-hour fire-rated assemblies
- Strong, durable and dimensionally stable
- No buckling or warping like wood sheathing
- Quick, easy and dry installation
- Fits in a standard elevator
