Flex-Ability Concepts Now Offers EuroStone Sustainable Acoustic Tiles Through Distribution Network
Oklahoma City, OK - A chance encounter at a trade show and a mutual company respect have led to a distribution agreement between Flex-Ability Concepts and EuroStone. Flex-Ability Concepts now is selling EuroStone ceiling tiles through its distributor network.
“I met Jaime Barrera and Carlos Rivadeneyra Amescua with EuroStone at the 2017 INTEX Construction Expo, and we realized we have very similar ideas about company visions and how to sell and market products,” said Robert Widmer, marketing manager with Flex-Ability Concepts. “Jaime and his team have a great product to bring to the market, and our distributors are eagerly helping to expand that reach.”
EuroStone is an acoustical ceiling tile made from inorganic volcanic stone with no fiber fillers. The sustainable tile’s content gives it a natural alkalinity that does not allow for mold or bacteria growth. If a pipe bursts in a building or a roof leaks, the water will not affect EuroStone’s stability or performance.
“Architects regularly design structures to prevent sick building syndrome, especially in hospitals, schools and high-humidity areas,” Barrera noted. “With EuroStone, architects and builders have a solution to help create a healthy built environment."
The tiles do not sag or stain, even in high humidity environments, like around pools or in coastal areas. EuroStone ceiling tiles are warranted to remain dimensionally stable up to 120 F (49 C) and 100 percent relative humidity when installed in a compatible Chicago Metallic ceiling suspension system. The tiles are fire resistant with Flame 0 and Smoke 0 UL Certifications.
There are 20 models and four standard colors available, and customization is always an option. “We can incorporate logos and special designs upon request so schools or corporations can highlight their brand in their design,” Barrera said. “We also can color match for a true customized look to enhance school pride in an aquatic center, for instance.”
The tiles are standard at 24 x 24 inches at 7/8-inch thick. They can be used in any type of building and are commonly seen in schools, airports, hospitals and public offices. The product comes with a 40-year warranty. EuroStone’s unique blend of perlite and an inorganic binder results in a life expectancy that far exceeds other tiles offered in the industry.
EuroStone Ceilings was conceived in England more than 20 years ago. Now owned by a 100-percent Mexican company, EuroStone has evolved to be more durable and more sustainable. EuroStone is described as the only true sustainable ceiling product that meets green building rating program criteria, such as LEED, because EuroStone is made of non-hazardous, non-fibrous materials and is 100-percent recyclable. EuroStone also is formaldehyde- and asbestos-free. Available in 20 styles and four colors with customization options, the sustainable product comes with a 40-year warranty.
“Other manufacturers make sustainable claims about their products, but because they contain a percentage of recycled paper, cellulose or rag, these tiles are not sustainable and could grow mold or bacteria,” Barrera added.
EuroStone can be seen on facilities across the country, such as the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, N.Y.; Brownsville/South Padre Island International Airport, Brownsville, Texas; and Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children, Honolulu.
