Benefits

There are many benefits to the UltraLight SHEETROCK Panels. As mentioned, they save time, labor and are lighter weight. These panels have a better strength-to-weight ratio than the traditional panels, as well. This benefit increases productivity with contractors trying to meet deadlines.

These types of panels are also allowing people to have a “green” home because of the recycled materials used. They are environmentally friendly and allowing the home to be made with better quality, although it’s often overlooked by consumers trying to add “green” features to the home.

What are SHEETROCK panels?

These panels are a product of USG Corporation and are available in over 500 retail locations. They are simply panels used in building homes. Since they are lighter weight, these panels are easier  and quicker to install.

These panels have even been awarded the Chicago Innovation Award, This Old House magazine’s “best new product” and Fast Company magazine’s list of “coolest products of 2010.”

USG’s scientists have made these lightweight panels using new patented technologies. They created the panels to only weight 15 to 24 pounds per panel which is much lighter than the competition. Not only is installation faster, but also transporting the panels has become easier.

The public’s reaction

Customers are thrilled with the new panels. Since customers had been asking for lighter-weight boards, this was the answer to this problem. Due to their reaction, the company has expanded its availability. People love that contractors are experiencing less fatigue and it’s helping them meet project demands. It’s reducing wear and tear on equipment, as well.

The public also loves that the panels offer environmental and health attributes. The panels are conversing raw materials up to 15% and are reducing 20% in transportation energy.
