New Digital Architect Binder Provides Easy Access to CertainTeed® Product Information

(Valley Forge, Pa.) – In order to provide easy online access to product information, CertainTeed Corporation has developed a new digital architect binder — a one-stop destination created to simplify the specification process for select exterior products. Visitors to the site will find the entire CertainTeed vinyl and fiber cement siding, trim, weather resistant barrier, decking, fence and railing product lines, as well as a link to CertainTeed’s Building Solutions® continuing education courses approved for credit with the American Institute of Architects. The new sitelet, www.certainteed.com/architectbinder, was developed specifically for architects, designers, specifiers and other industry professionals involved in researching material and product options at each stage of the design process.

“Our intent is to make the information most desired by architects and the design community easy to access,” says Matt Gibson, manager, contractor programs at CertainTeed. “With product and sustainability data changing rapidly, our digital architect binder enables design professionals to instantly research and download the most current product information necessary to move forward with the specifying process.”

The digital architect binder includes printable Word and PDF versions of sought after documents including specification sheets, portfolios, drawings, warranty information, brochures, installation manuals and other technical data.
