Architectural Record magazine, of which I’m a big fan, has picked PROSOCO R-GUARD® FastFlash as one of the best new products of 2010.
What a thrill for yours truly!
Here’s my press release crowing about the recognition.
Architectural Record names FastFlash a “best new product” for 2010
PROSOCO R-GUARD® FastFlash liquid-applied flashing membrane has been chosen as a “best new product” of 2010 by an independent panel of product experts in Architectural Record magazine’s 38th annual Product Reports edition.
FastFlash is a “gun-grade” adhesive and detailing compound for waterproofing rough openings in structural walls. Suitable for all climates, FastFlash bonds directly to damp or dry building materials, and cures under a variety of weather conditions.
In their written opinion, the jury stated that they “liked the flexibility of R-GUARD FastFlash, which can stop water penetration of transition points, door and window assemblies, and paneling joints.”
The jury cited the product’s ability to withstand severe weather, including high-intensity coastal, Mid-Western and mountain storms as a selection factor. They also noted that FastFlash can be exposed to weather for up to six months, in case of construction delays.
The nine-member jury, all based in New York City, consisted of architectural firm principals; design consultants; product designers; and a resource librarian. Four of the panel members were LEED Accredited Professionals.
They chose FastFlash as one of five top products out of about 35 entries in the “Thermal & Moisture Protection category. The group reviewed about 500 entries overall in 11 categories, according to Architectural Record Products Editor Rita Catinella Orrell.
