LRM Industries Introduces ValuDock(TM), a Simple, Green Dock Building Solution
ROCKLEDGE, Fla., -- LRM Industries International, Inc. headquartered in Rockledge, Florida, announces the introduction of ValuDock(TM) modular dock panels, the first product in family of innovative and environmentally friendly thermoplastic marine dock solutions. LRM will show ValuDock(TM) panels for first time from February 11th through the 15th at The Miami International Boat Show 2010.
The 2 ft. long by 4 ft. wide ValuDock(TM) panels replace treated wood or synthetic lumber board decking used today with a tough, durable panel, which has integrated structural support. ValuDock(TM) panels have a 5 in. deep rib structure underneath, eliminating the need for, and expense of, stringers commonly used by existing flat-panel decking products. Also, the panels can be easily removed for storage during winter months.
The installation of ValuDock(TM) panels is fast and simple. The panels drop onto existing framing joists and are attached with lag screws...that's it...you now have a beautiful dock that will not rot, splinter or warp. No maintenance is required for breakthrough longevity and attractiveness.
The surface of an ValuDock(TM) panel is grained and lightly ridged to provide anti-slip characteristics, and they are slotted to allow sunlight to pass through to the marine habitat below. This slotting and a slightly crowned surface keep an ValuDock(TM) dock free of standing water.
Initially offered standard in beige and light gray, with minimum quantity orders ValuDock(TM) panels may be custom-ordered in other pastel colors, which are easy on the bare feet in the hot sun. Accent your environment with an aqua, light green or white marine dock, which is uniform in color, attractive and the envy of the neighborhood!
Said Jim Callough, CEO of LRM Industries International, Inc., "Our ValuDock(TM) family of products will leverage our unique, patented TPF ThermoPlastic Flowforming(TM) technology. No technology in the world can produce large, feature-rich products like TPF can. This is also a 'green building' product. At LRM we use no VOC emitting materials in the manufacture of our products and we are closed-loop in terms of recyclability; we have no plastic waste and use consumer and industrial recycled content in our products."
At The Miami International Boat Show in booth #3009, LRM will exhibit the ValuDock(TM) modular dock panel as the first product in the new family of marine dock solutions.
LRM Industries International, Inc. was established to commercialize TPF ThermoPlastic Flowforming(TM) technology, a radically different and award-winning process technology for producing large, feature-rich, long-fiber reinforced thermoplastic composite parts in one fully automated molding operation. With the TPF ThermoPlastic Flowforming(TM) and STF Sheetless ThermoForming(TM) technologies, LRM enables innovative applications and designs in the use of plastics and thermoplastic composites to produce very large unitary structures where, to-date, it has been viewed as cost prohibitive or lacking in strength and structural integrity.
