New UltraTouch+ Sound Control System

The makers of UltraTouch recycled denim insulation have just introduced a new product, UltraTouch+ Sound Control System, which has increased sound isolation. Combining high density denim batt insulation and high density denim sound dampening strips, UltraTouch+ is an acoustic solution in a bag. UltraTouch+ is made from high-quality natural fibers which contain inherent qualities that provide extremely effective sound isolation, while still providing energy efficient thermal performance. UltraTouch+ contains no chemical irritants and requires no warning labels when compared to traditional fiberglass insulation. There are no VOC concerns when using UltraTouch+, as it is safe for you and the environment. In addition to providing superior performance, UltraTouch+ is also easy to install. The high density batt insulation is perforated for easy sizing and the high density sound dampening strips attach to the stud faces with either staples or adhesive. As cooler weather approaches, contact us for your insulation needs.

CaraGreen Now A Distributor for ECOfusion Flooring

ECOfusion bamboo and eucalyptus flooring is the latest addition to CaraGreen’s sustainable product portfolio. ECOfusion blends rapidly renewable natural materials and “fuses” them into innovative, beautiful, and durable flooring. All of their products are free of added urea formaldehyde and are rapidly renewable, meaning they contribute to numerous LEED credits.

ECOfusion has the widest range of colors in bamboo flooring that we've seen. And, they have the only color infused bamboo flooring on the market. ECOfusion uses thru-color technology to dye bamboo strands using pure plant-based pigments. The technology dramatically increases the life cycle of the floor as dents and scratches do not require repair as color appears throughout the wear layer.

ECOfusion’s engineered bamboo strand woven flooring is 100% bamboo unlike other products that use wood as a substrate. ECOfusion’s proprietary cross-grain bamboo core features strand woven bamboo on the top and bottom, which provides optimal performance and stability in all climates. 

ECOfusion has a wide range of flooring options including bamboo, eucalyptus, solid, engineered, color infused, stained, and carbonized. Their products are suited for both commercial and residential applications.
