SKOKIE, IL— AZEK Building Products, a leader in the development of premium, low maintenance exterior building products, is proud to announce its competition, #AZEKRailChallenge, at the 2017 International Builders’ Show to prove that its Impression Rail installs faster than any other aluminum rail system on the market. On Wednesday, January 11th at 10 a.m., show attendees will be able to watch contractors compete head-to-head to demonstrate how Impression Rail stands out in the market with an ease of install that is up to 30 percent faster than most aluminum rail systems. The competition will be hosted by HGTV and DIY Network host and carpenter Jeff Devlin, who will also be appearing at the AZEK booth on Thursday, January 12th at 9 a.m.
On Wednesday, January 11th, three contractors will be timed to see who can install an AZEK Impression Rail section the fastest. Viewers will see the Impression Rail’s first-rate, quick installation and industry leading aesthetics firsthand during the competition. The popular railing offers an alternative to wrought iron with lower maintenance material.
“For IBS this year, we wanted to put show attendees to the test to see who can install our Impression Rail the fastest while also allowing guests to see just how quickly they could complete a job onsite with our top-of-the-line railing,” said AZEK Building Products CMO Julia Fitzgerald. “Managing time and labor is critical to our contractor’s profitability, so we designed this rail system with that in mind.”
Impression Rail’s low-maintenance, high-quality powder coated aluminum profiles are engineered for strength, security and aesthetics. Its lightweight profile and best-in-class, one person installation method saves time and labor on the jobsite while eliminating the need for welding equipment, specialty saw blades or other special tools that metal railing often requires. The Impression Rail Install Jig is available for purchase separately and speeds up fastener placement while ensuring the best fit and finish for each project.
To watch the contest in person, come to AZEK Building Products’ Booth #W6371 at the IBS Show in Orlando, FL on Wednesday, January 11th at 10 a.m. For updates on the competition, follow #AZEKRailChallenge on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
