LP Announces Entrance into G.C.C. Region with LP® SolidStart® LSL Stile and Rail Door Stabilizers

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (28 July, 2015) – LP Building Products has announced its intention to expand into the Gulf Cooperation Council (G.C.C.) region. For the first time, the building products company will be offering LP® SolidStart® Laminated Strand Lumber (LSL) stile and rail door stabilizers to wholesalers, remanufacturers and door producers in the Middle East. 

“With the expansion into this new market we will be able to provide SolidStart LSL in six new countries, allowing us to form new relationships in the Middle East,” said Al Huber, International Sales Manager for LP Building Products. “We are eager to fulfill the high demand in a vastly growing region.”

The G.C.C. region is one of the world’s largest and fastest growing construction markets, with broad local technical expertise and strong demand for high performance solutions from world-class companies with well-established value propositions. With this high-rise construction comes a huge demand for fire-rated technical doors.

LP SolidStart LSL is an advanced product and a lower cost alternative to hardwood timber. The product also provides an economical alternative for the technical door market in high demand applications like fire, sound, climatic, security and ballistic.

The only CE certified LSL on the market today, LP SolidStart LSL also comes with both PEFC® and SFI® full CoC (Chain of Custody) forest certification to ensure responsible use of the world’s forests. Where stability counts, LP SolidStart LSL’s dimensional stability and impressive screw holding and split-resistant characteristics makes it the ideal choice as a high performance alternative for stiles and rails in the technical door market.
