ClarkDietrich Ready to Highlight Breadth of Products and Expertise at BUILD24

Submitted by Jenny Hull on

The ClarkDietrich team is headed to the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin resort in Florida for the BUILD24 Convention and Expo March 24-27, where we will give wall and ceiling contractors a look at the full spectrum of our time- and money-saving products. Organized by the Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry (AWCI), BUILD24 is the largest trade show specifically catered to the wall and ceiling industry, featuring the latest and greatest products, services and solutions to help companies thrive.

This year, ClarkDietrich will be showing up with a brand-new booth experience (#501) that showcases the various framing and finishing systems, services and digital tools that are helping building professionals solve all sorts of design challenges, from head-of-wall deflection and firestopping to expert drywall finishing. Some of the highlights include:

  • Leadership in sustainability—The environmental well-being of our planet is a top priority. As a leading manufacturer of products for the built environment, ClarkDietrich is committed to continually increasing the sustainable attributes of our products.

At BUILD24, the team will debut our latest Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) that provide transparent information about our products’ manufacturing and supply chain. We’ll also give customers an overview of our SustainabilityPRO platform—an easy-to-use digital tool that allows users to quickly access the product-specific information and certifications needed to calculate contributions to LEED®, LBC, WELL and many other green building rating systems.

  • The latest product innovations for head-of-wall framing—A well-designed framing system can accommodate forces imposed on the structure by gravity, wind uplift and seismic activity. Often, this also includes fire and smoke protection. If deflection is required in a fire-rated wall assembly, then the head-of-wall deflection joint must be protected.

Our innovative BlazeFrame® products, most of which feature an intumescent strip affixed to steel profiles, have helped framing contractors incorporate firestopping and joint deflection into various head-of-wall applications. For larger deflection gaps, BlazeFrame RipTRAK™ offers an alternate listing by eliminating castle cuts and sealant.

  • Expert-level drywall finishing solutions (no expertise required)

Whether you’re looking for traditional metal drywall corner bead or the latest in composite finishing solutions, ClarkDietrich’s got you covered. From our Pro-90 vinyl cornerbead to the family of Strait-Flex® composite products, we’ll showcase our full line of drywall finishing solutions aimed at helping drywall crews of any skill level deliver the kind of superior results (in less time) that wow owners and help prevent costly callbacks.

  • Product solutions for high-performance building envelopes

The science of air and moisture management in the building envelope is always evolving, and ClarkDietrich is a trusted partner for innovative solutions. ProChannel Ci is a new cladding attachment that solves thermal, air and moisture complexities and makes its public debut at BUILD24. We’ll also highlight the new E-Screen, a versatile entangled mesh rainscreen mat for a variety of systems.

Of course, we couldn’t forget to include StructaWire, our welded-wire lath for better, faster stucco embedment (and the foundation of our Easy Embedment System™), which has a strong track record of success in the stucco market.
