Spring Cleaning

The focus of the design community on mitigating waste has resulted in interest in less “sample heavy” design libraries.  We hear you!  We have color cards that capture the aesthetics and color palette for most of our products and offer these in lieu of bulky sample boxes when requested.  A library “refresh” is more of a “clean out” for a lot of firms, as materials change.  If you would like any color cards for Durat, Meld, BarkHouse, PaperStone, EcoFusion, or TorZo, please let us know and we can drop them off or email them to your firm.

Please email info@caragreen.com or call 919.929.3009 with any requests.

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.

Durat Garners Attention at NeoCon East

In October, CaraGreen exhibited Durat at NeoCon East in Baltimore. Two representatives from Durat, Heikki Karppinen and Katerina Baranovskaja, came from Finland for the show. We launched Durat’s new tabletop program in which you can get tops made from their signature sustainable solid surface material in numerous sizes of round, square, and rectangular shapes and in over 60 colors. The table program interested designers working in industries from hospitality to healthcare. Durat’s vibrant booth with its lime green bathtub and Raita striped bench stood out on the show floor. And, our custom made Durat “Jenga” set challenged and entertained visitors. Thanks to everyone that stopped by our booth!
