October 22, 2014– The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) has awarded Composite Panel Systems with an Award for Composites Excellence (ACE) in the Infinite Possibility for Market Growth category at the 2014 Composites and Advanced Materials Expo (CAMX) in Orlando, Fla. Composite Panel Systems received the ACE Award for their EPITOME | Quality Foundation Walls a high performance, engineered replacement for poured concrete walls.
“Every year, I’m so impressed by the talent and creativity that our ACE Awards winners possess,” said Tom Dobbins, president of ACMA. “I love to see how the members of our industry continue to push the boundaries and grow the industry through these amazing projects.”
The Infinite Possibility for Market Growth Award honors the composites product that demonstrates the potential to significantly increase the use of composites in existing markets or generate the greatest impact to open new and emerging markets for composites.
EPITOME | Quality Foundation Walls are a cutting edge alternative to concrete foundation walls. They are an innovative, structurally superior, highly insulated, fire and water resistive panel that incorporates nominally sized studs, 16 inches on center, a vapor barrier, double lapped top plate and a continuous R-16.5 insulation value in a single construct.
Being an engineered solution the 7 inch thick panelized EPITOME foundation walls can typically be installed in as little as 3 hours and offer homeowners more usable damp free and mold resistant livable square footage in the lower level.
