  Top Products for You to Use in Your Next Project

Whether you’re an architect, engineer, project manager, or contractor, it’s important to consider the best possible products for you to use in your upcoming projects. Here are some suggestions for you to think about the next time you are designing or engineering your next building.


Guardian Deco HT Glass
If you want a glass that is already painted, then check out the Guardian Deco HT Glass. Guardian Glass’s back-painted glass is ideal for decorative purposes with its high-opacity, uniform finish. The uses of this glass range from being used as a white board to backsplashes. Check out this glass and other glass products by Guardian at www.guardianglass.com. By the way, Guardian Glass products were used in the University of Alaska, Fairbanks’s Dining Facility featured on the cover of the July-August 2017 issue of Design Cost Data. See the high performance, low-E triple glazed Guardian SunGuard SuperNeutral 68 glass down in all its glory down below:

Faour Glass Technologies
Consider Faour Glass if you want a clean, minimalist look applied to your building. Why be clunky when Faour’s Slimpact® Frameless Doors System can make your buildings much more modern. Even more so, these doors are engineered to provide you safety with its hurricane protection in case of disaster. View these glass doors at www.faourglass.com.


ERCO Lighting
LED lighting is no longer the lighting of the future – it’s the lighting of today. ERCO offers lighting specifically for our digital era – ranging from digital light generation to light control. From an architectural and engineering standpoint, ERCO’s LED lighting tools give you complete control on your lighting design from both indoors and outdoors – all remotely. Check out what ERCO has to offer at www.erco.com.

Cooper/Metalus Cruze LED Series
Another LED option to consider is the Cruze LED Series. This lighting offers energy saving, comfort, and contemporary styling using Eaton’s Linear LED platform. It’s ideal if you are designing for hospitals, schools, offices, residences, hotels, and commercial spaces. See the lighting options at www.cooperindustries.com. You can see the LED lighting used at South Central Elementary School.


McElroy Metal Roofing
With roofing, you can’t go wrong with metal. Not only does metal roofing have aesthetic quality, it is also durable when facing high wind uplift conditions. McElroy offers metals with many colors, textures, and finishes. They also offer Insulated Metal Panels (IMP). See the offerings at www.mcelroymetal.com. See how beautiful metal roofing looks on Flora Elementary School.


Fiandre Tile
Developed by Fiandre laboratories, Fiadre marble tile is what you can consider if you want both aesthetic perfection and performance – the best of both worlds. The shades of these tiles are pure, and feature light to intense veins. The pure shades of the tiles contrast the wood flooring seen in the Brown Daub Volvo of Lehigh Valley Renovation below. See the complete selection at www.granitifiandre.com/porcelain-tile/marble-lab.
