C o n s t r u c t i o n M a r k e t p l a c e 9 W e d n e s d a y, J a n u a r y 2 0 , 2 0 1 6 SANITARY PRODUCTS FROM SENOPLAST One of Senoplast's largest markets is its sanitary product. Senoplast offers a wide range of sheet thicknesses for every appli- cation, from bathroom accessories to tub surrounds, bathtubs, showers and vanity sinks. Contrary to traditional materials for baths and showers, such as cast acrylic and ceramics, the use of co-extruded Senosan ® composite sheets of ABS and PMMA allows for the demands of the R&D profession and consumer expecta- tions as well as the economic production costs, and still retains Senoplast's high quality manufacturing. Senoplast's multi-layer composite sheets of ABS and PMMA have a brilliant sanitary acrylic sur- face, and the reinforcement layer of the sheet brings additional sta- bility to the end product. All of Senoplast's 3000 series product is produced with antibac ® to ensure a hygienic surface. The characteristics of its material all exceed the tolerances for chemical, breakage and scratch resist- ance, while providing long durability. This product offers the utmost in excellent design possibilities in estab- lished colors of your choosing. Have a special color? Senoplast's outstanding color lab staff does an excellent job of matching your color request and the production team then follows suit with ensuring all pigments are in perfect harmony to achieve your color in the final sheet.

EXPANDED SPOTLIGHTS DOORGLASS SELECTION CATCHING CURBSIDE ATTENTION ODL ® , Inc., a leading building products supplier of decorative and clear doorglass and entry treatments, is featuring its expanded line of Spotlights™ doorglass at the 2016 International Builders' Show in Las Vegas. Spotlights doorglass is suit- able for any flush door purchased from a distributor or door shop. The newest features of the expanded Spotlights doorglass collection include Low E Clear Glass, Circuit Silkscreen design and a new FiberMate Modern frame. New sizes are also available in the collection. These additions are certain to attract interest from attendees. "ODL is always considering and anticipating the needs of architects, builders and remodelers," says Roger Finch, Senior Distributor Channel Marketing Manager of ODL. "We are constantly innovating our current offer- ings while appealing to individual archi- tectural styles. The latest Spotlights col- lection accomplishes that by combining the growing trend for renovations and sustainability with authentic design." The Spotlights collection was creat- ed to enhance the unique style of exist- ing homes, such as Georgian Revival, Mid-Century Ranch and Bungalow. As more homeowners opt to renovate their homes, Spotlights designs help them stay true to their roots, while enhancing curb appeal. The new FiberMate Modern frame will further distinguish the customer's home from neighboring homes, as it can be painted or stained to match any preferred finishing method. The four additional glass options provide a range of privacy levels. Chain link glass, cubed glass and frosted glass allow for heightened privacy, while clear glass provides complete trans- parency. Not only does Spotlights doorglass upgrade the style of existing homes, but its insulated glass and well-constructed frame units also make it an energy-effi- cient choice. In addition, architects, builders and remodelers can vary their choices in style and configuration, mak- ing pricing particularly flexible.
