ARMSTRONG’S QUIKSTIX™ PROVIDES REMODELERS WITH SUPERIOR FRAMING SOLUTION
LANCASTER, Pa. (September 10, 2008) — Armstrong Building Products introduces QuikStix™ framing system for walls, ceilings and soffits – a line of steel framing products, for residential or light commercial applications, that is simpler and easier to install than traditional framing methods.
QuikStix is quick and easy to install, dramatically lessening time spent involved in the installation process. QuikStix’s ‘Turn n Click’ feature aids dimensional stability by minimizing measuring, simplifying framing tee layout and making the application of drywall to framing easier than ever. Ideal for basement settings, QuikStix complements Armstrong’s line of ceiling products and is designed to allow any professional installer or skilled DIYer to frame a wall, ceiling or soffit in a residential or light commercial installation.
Unlike typical wood framing methods, the steel components used in QuikStix do not support mold or mildew, are not combustible and will not warp or twist. QuikStix is perfect for any green-building enthusiast, as it is not only made from 30 percent recycled steel, but will also last as long as the structure in which it is installed, creating a more sustainable and eco-friendly home.
QuikStix is available exclusively at select Lowe’s locations throughout the United States. For more information, visit www.armstrong.com.
