USG Corp. has launched USG Structural Solutions; the USG Structural Panel Concrete Roof Deck is among the first products in the portfolio. USG Structural Solutions was designed with the structural engineer and contractor in mind. The products in the portfolio feature a noncombustible formulation (certified by Underwriters Laboratories Inc.), dry application process and ease of handling on the job site. The roof deck creates one- and two-hour fire-rated assemblies. It is strong, durable and dimensionally stable and fits in a standard elevator.

USG Corp. has unveiled its USG Securock Brand Concrete Roof Deck Panel, a durable structural panel that can be combined with other noncombustible materials to create a one- and two-hour fire-rated roof/ceiling assembly. Designed with great uplift ratings and to carry gravity and lateral loads, USG Securock Concrete Roof Deck Panels are mechanically fastened to cold-formed steel joists or framing members, and roof membranes or insulation attach directly over the panels. The panel meets the criteria of ASTM E136-04 for use in all types of noncombustible construction.

New USG Packaging Is Less Complicated

Beginning in early 2015, you may notice a change to USG’s packaging. USG’s products aren’t changing due to the new packaging. They still deliver the absolute highest level of quality, backed by USG’s unparalleled service and support. Thanks in part to OSHA mandates for warning statements on packaging, the new USG packaging is less complicated and easier to identify for your specific needs.

New USG packaging highlights include:

    Clarity: A uniform layout and presentation of key information makes it easier for you to find the right product for their needs.
    Consistency: Our new packaging is aligned within and across product lines, making it easy to identify USG products in retail, in warehouses and on job sites.
    Confidence: Easy-to-understand safety information and instructions protects against mishaps.
    Compliance:All new packaging meets or exceeds government regulations for GHS (Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals) labeling.
    According to the regulations, after June 1, 2015, we can no longer ship products affected by GHS that feature the old packing. And on December 1, 2015, retailers and distributors can no longer sell products affected by GHS that feature old packaging.

Together, we can transform this mandated change into an opportunity to create a better experience for customers.
