Coastal Forest Products Brings PINKwood fire-rated i-joists to it’s northeast dealer network
Introducing PinkWood FRI joists with PinkWood Shield web protection

Bedford, NH, November 16, 2016PinkWood, Ltd of Calgary AB Canada has appointed Coastal Forest Products to distribute their innovative fire-resistant i-joist product, FRI-joist to the Northeast. Utilizing its patented WEBshield technology, PinkWood’s FRI series joists slows the effects of fire by protecting the i-joist web to meet and exceed the current IRC 302.13 code standards.

“As a major distributor of Engineered Wood Products, meeting IRC standards has been a top priority and with the addition of PinkWood’s FRI series i- joists, we have closed the gap and now have a complete solution”, stated Bill Sweeney, Coastal – Engineered Wood Products

By adding PinkWood FRI joists, Coastal’s dealer network can now comfortably provide an I-joist solution that will meet current IRC standards while keeping the construction cost on budget, as compared to the costs associated with installing sprinkler systems or in adding a drywall barrier between floors.

“We are extremely excited about the opportunity to work with Coastal Forest Products. Their reputation and market position in the Engineered Wood industry will serve to strength our newly formed relationship. They truly are a first class operation”, stated John Davis, PinkWood VP
