HPL WALL SYSTEM OFFERS DECORATIVE TWIST TO EXTERIOR APPLICATIONS
• Made by saturating multiple layers of kraft paper with phenolic resin fused together under intense heat and pressure, Fabral High Pressure Laminate (HPL) wall panels offer a stylish, integral-surface solution for exterior applications. The panels are virtually impervious to weathering and harsh environmental conditions, and offer UV resistance and color stability, according to the maker.
The closed, nonporous surface limits dirt accumulation, and it holds bolts, screws, and other fixings solidly. HPL compact panels consist of thermosetting resins, homogeneously reinforced with up to 65% wood-based fibers, sourced from FSC-certified forests.

• LIGHTWEIGHT VAPORPERMEABLE MEMBRANE IS BUILT FOR VIRTUALLY ALL WALL APPLICATIONS
From masonry cavity walls to metal cladding systems to curtain walls and parapets, the IKO AquaBarrier VP self-adhering vapor-permeable membrane is designed for use on a variety of wall assemblies. The membrane can be applied to most common substrates, including gypsum, OSB, CMU, and plywood. The lightweight composition of AquaBarrier VP simplifies installation, with no mechanical attachments or primer required for standard application. It is constructed of a polyolefin synthetic polymer fiber membrane with low water retention capacity, which offers resistance to mold and mildew.

BRIGHT-WHITE ROOF COATING OFFERS THREE PERFORMANCE OPTIONS
A new collection of roof coatings is 100% elastomeric acrylic with a brilliant-white finish that reflects the sun’s rays, which can lower heat buildup and reduce costs. The collection includes three lines: Duro-Shield 20 offers 35 mils of coverage when dry and a 20-year limited warranty; Duro-Shield 10 features 24 mils of coverage when dry and a 10-year limited warranty; Duro-Shield 5 offers 20 mils of coverage when dry and a five-year limited warranty.

• INDUSTRIAL LIGHTING SYSTEM CONVERTS BLUE LIGHT TO GREEN, YELLOW
Companies that produce milk, beer, pharmaceuticals, and semiconductors have been wary to adopt LED technology because the blue-light wavelength causes photochemical degradation and photo-oxidation damage to the products being made. These industries have had to use colored packing and UV coating solutions, which can increase power consumption and energy costs, to protect against the harmful blue light. New lighting technology from Hubbell Lighting looks to solve the problem. The SpectraLoc LED blue-spectrum high-bay fixture converts harmful blue light under 500 nanometers to benign green and yellow light. The light applies what is called the Stokes Shift effect, where wavelengths of light below 500 nanometers are absorbed by a unique optic found in SpectraLoc and are then retransmitted at longer, nondestructive wavelengths. SpectraLoc can exceed 19,000 lumens while only consuming 112-175 watts, averaging 108 to 110 lumens per watt.

• WOOD BRACKETS GIVE 110-YEAR-OLD HOTEL A HIGHER LEVEL OF DISTINCTION
During a recent restoration, Hotel Breakers, a 110-year-old hotel located adjacent to Sandusky, Ohio’s Cedar Point amusement park, was outfitted with almost 500 Nu-Wood brackets.
One of the goals during the hotel’s 2014–15 refurbishment was to create a low-maintenance exterior. Because so many brackets were required, and due to the high elevation at which many would be installed, future maintenance would be costly and difficult. Braun & Steidl Architects specified 496 custom-made brackets in three sizes from Nu-Wood. The polyurethane brackets will not rot, crack, absorb water, or swell, and are moisture-, mold-, insect-, and impact-resistant—all while retaining the desired aesthetic of real wood. The brackets were made in a range of sizes, from three to five feet tall, in order to be clearly visible from the ground.

LARGE-SCALE ROOF SHINGLES SPEED INSTALLATION, REDUCE WASTE
At 42 inches wide and 14 inches high, the HP42” shingle from Atlas Roofing is the largest shingle manufactured in the U.S., according to the maker. Its size, along with features like a 1½-inch nailing area and a seven-course, zero-waste shingle offset, combine to speed installation and reduce waste. Based on an average 40-square job, the HP42” approach requires 320 fewer shingles to install and up to 6,000 fewer nails and penetrations. This equates to approximately $40 in savings on a 130-mph wind limited warranty installation, along with a savings of two to four hours of labor time. The HP42” format is available for the Atlas StormMaster Shake and Pinnacle Pristine shingle lines.
