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.

Coeur d’Alene Wood Names Coastal Forest Products as Their Northeastern Distribution Partner

Coeur d’Alene Wood Names Coastal Forest Products as Their Northeastern Distribution Partner
Coastal expands siding and trim offering with an exciting alternative to reclaimed wood!

Bedford, NH, November 8, 2016– Coeur d’Alene’s Xcelerated wood products mimic the look of reclaimed wood without all of the drawbacks associated with reclaimed wood.  

  • Source of supply has always been a major issue with reclaimed wood but with Xcelerated, made with readily available Alaskan Yellow Cedar, there is always a reliable supply!
  • Reclaimed wood comes with an unknown history regarding previous coatings and possible volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which may have leached deeper into the wood.  Not an issue with Xcelerated, which is VOC free with no off-gassing from any previously applied chemicals.
  • Because of the nature of how reclaimed wood is used, there is a large portion that is unusable and therefore is cut off and ultimately wasted.  In some cases, that waste can be as much as 70%, as opposed to Xcelerated, which is brand new lumber and therefore very little is cut off and wasted!
  • In addition to the safety hazards of using wood with a potentially toxic substance trapped inside, reclaimed wood also presents an injury hazard with hidden and undetectable metal fragments, left over from its previous use. Even with safety glasses, when a saw blade hits a hidden metal fragment, the saw blade sends that fragment flying at high speed.  Compare that with Xcelerated wood, which is brand new and has nothing hidden inside…. except the potential for beauty!

“When we were presented with the ability to distribute Coeur d’Alene’s Xcelerated product, we welcomed the opportunity to be able to offer such an innovative and sought after product line” stated Pike Severance, CFO at Coastal Forest Products

LDCA Names Coastal FP’s Evan MacDermott 2016 Lumber Person of the Year

The following article was published by the Lumber Dealers Association of Connecticut on October 31, 2016:

 

macdermott-300x225Wood is not just the building material on which Lumber Person of the Year Evan MacDermott makes his living; it seems to be the recurring theme of his life. He began his career working with wood in a much more natural state. After graduating from the University of New Hampshire (UNH) in 1984 with a degree in forestry science, he accepted a job as a forester for the Massachusetts Metropolitan District Commission (now a part of the Department of Conservation and Recreation) in Boston. His job was to reduce the fire load from gypsy moth deforestation, which had spiked the previous year. Evan migrated to the lumber industry shortly thereafter (“It beats working for the state.”) and has remained a lumberman ever since. It’s no wonder that as a participant in the YMCA’s Indian Guides program, he earned the name “Great Wood Spirit.”

Evan has been with Coastal Forest Products for 17 years, but there have been many stops along his journey through the lumber industry. He was brought in by Gil Adams of Warren Trask, and accepted a job driving a forklift and unloading trucks and freight cars at the terminal in Waterbury, Connecticut. It was in Warren Trask’s warehouses where he got a re-education of sorts, learning about redwood, cedar, pine, fir and spruce not as trees in a forest but as building materials to be sorted into orders and inventory units. read more…
