Building products manufacturer Boral brought innovative products for three of its brands to the 2018 International Builders' Show. We caught up with senior product manager Aaron Sims to look at what's new for Kleer, Versetta Stone, and TruExterior.
Many of Boral's 2018 new offerings feature creative additions to their standard products. Recently acquired in an acquisition of the Tapco Group, Kleer, for example has introduced a new trim corner with a hidden nailing flange and a collated system to make using its trim fasteners easier. TruExterior has added a drainage and ventilation plane on the back of its standard Craftsman Collection siding, "to allow the product to breath, and allow the sheathing behind it to breathe, to provide a better insulation for the exterior envelope," says Sims.
The company also introduced its first new stone product since the inception of the Versetta Stone brand, called Carved Block. The larger format, modern look comes in two colors: sea salt and midnight.
