The Newest CS Product Launch: Acrovyn by Design Tapestry

A collection of fabrics with the words " tapestry " in front.

Here at APEM, we are over the moon excited for Construction Specialties newest product launch; the Acrovyn by Design Tapestry Collection! Tapestry fuses beautifully designed textiles with the durability, cleanability, and impact protection of CS Acrovyn. Tapestry’s elegant palette of textures and colors resemble those found in nature and comes in four different fabrics and sixteen different colors, giving Designers 64 unique options!

Just like CS standard Acrovyn sheet, Tapestry is available in 4′ x 8′, .040 sheet, and can be installed with either aluminum trims, clear, or color match caulk. In addition, Tapestry can also be used on any of our different panel options. We believe this new product will be a great fit for nurses stations, feature walls, and even elevator banks and headwalls. We cant wait to meet with you to go over this exciting new product line!

Your most common Tapestry questions answered:

*What are the two configurations that the Tapestry Collection is available in?
Wall panels & direct applied sheet

*What is the warranty for the Tapestry Material? The standard CS 5 year limited warranty applies

*What are the fire ratings of the Tapestry sheet material?
The fire rating varies by pattern with the Dunes & Groves patterns being UL Class A and the Coastal and Thatched patterns being a UL Class B

UniQuad® – Translucent Window System

In addition to supplying products such as translucent skylights, canopies,
walkways, and translucent walls, Kingspan Light + Air is now offering a brand
new product, the UniQuad Translucent Window. This system offers the same quality and performance KLA is known for but gives Designers and Contractors another option when punched openings are present, thermal performance is required, and lead time are of the utmost importance.
Kingspan Light + Air has been able to design the UniQuad Window system with the same extraordinary performance of their award winning UniQuad unitized wall panel system; however, they have been able to pre-engineer this system to allow for extremely fast submittal leads time and quick product delivery.

Due to the pre-engineered nature of this system, please keep in mind that the system is bound to predetermined punched opening heights. Nevertheless, window lengths can span uninterrupted for as long as your project demands. All of the punched opening sections are factory assembled, further assisting to the products getting installed faster than any other comparable product on the market. All of this is accomplished without sacrificing any of the impressive UValue, SHGC, and Light Transmittance performance KLA is known for. We are extremely excited and pleased to be able to offer this system to the Architect and Contractor community immediately!

We sat down with our newst hire, Allan, to ask him a few questions:

What drew you to the Design & Construction Industry?

I always loved working with my hands and building stuff ever since I was a kid. The first project I built was a woodshed with my father. We did everything from pour the concrete, frame it, and put shingles on. It is what got me interested in the construction field and fueled my decision to earn my degree in Construction Engineering Management.

Before working at APEM, what was the most interesting or unusual job
you’ve ever had?

The most interesting job was when I was in the active duty Navy and deployed in support of a joint task force to help bolster the country of Jordan’s security and to suppress the influence of ISIS in the region. It was very rewarding to me to not only work with different branches of military, different nations militaries, as well as working with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) such as the Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders.

What do you like to do when you are not working?

I like to spend time with family and enjoy working on the house. I also like hanging out in my shop building things. I want to build a kitchen table, I think that will be next on my list.

What are three items you’d take with you to a deserted island?

A knife, canteen, and a hammer. Everything else you can find or build.

What are three things still left on your bucket list?

Scuba dive the Great Barrier Reef, see the Northern Lights, and take the family to Zion National Park
