First shipment marks LP Building Solutions’ first entry into fencing and third new product launch in 2019
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 7, 2019) – LP Building Solutions, a proven leader in innovative, high performance building solutions, announced today it has shipped its first order of its new engineered wood fence solution LP Elements® Performance Fencing, just one week after announcing product availability. Jamieson Fence Supply, a Dallas-based national fencing wholesaler, is the first customer of LP Elements fencing.
“The first shipment of LP Elements fencing represents a significant milestone in the fencing industry,” LP Product Technology Director Ashwin Himat said. “It is the first and only engineered wood fence product for the market, and now it is in the market. A longtime leader in building solutions, we’re committed to making LP Elements a game-changing new product for installers and homeowners.”
Himat added the new fencing product is an important part of the company’s strategy to grow its high-performance product portfolio and transform LP into a leading building solutions provider.
Jamieson Fence Supply anticipates its professional fence and access control contractor customers will appreciate the new material category offering.
“Like LP, Jamieson Fence Supply is solutions-minded,” Jamieson Fence Supply Area Vice President-Sales Justin McMichael said. “We value the advancements LP is contributing to our industry with LP Elements Performance Fencing. We are proud to be the first to take it to market and ultimately help put LP Elements to work for the end customer.”
One of the industry’s most rigorously tested fencing products, LP Elements’ 6-foot long by 6-inch wide picket features a dog ear design that is engineered and tested to withstand hail and impacts, high-velocity winds exceeding 200 mph, Exposure D, humid temperatures and more. It is protected to the core with LP’s proprietary zinc borate-based process to resist against termites.
The durable engineered wood of LP Elements fencing features consistent quality that does not bend, warp or twist like softwood. Offering the natural beauty of cedar and redwood with lower maintenance costs and hassle, LP Elements fencing eliminates the need to re-stain.
