Protect the Exterior of Your Retail Structure

Sustainable, Aesthetically Pleasing Solutions from Interior Supply

The new structure that you are designing, remodeling, or building needs to keep air in and the elements out. It needs to withstand the seasons, along with rapid changes in weather and temperature. The products and materials you choose should be easy to install, low-maintenance, and last for a long time. You also want to choose products that are aesthetically pleasing for the outside of your building, giving it an impressive, yet functional, facade.

The exterior look of your store, especially if is a free-standing building, can work to reinforce the brand and create a unique look that is recognizable to the passer-by.

We offer insulation solutions from companies like DryvitHenry, and Owens Corning that can help the exterior of your office building meet requirements from local building codes, specifications from the owner, and earn LEED credits.

Create a Striking Retail Space

Acoustical Performance

Inside the building, you need to create a comfortable shopping experience that is not too loud, has the proper lighting, and has an aesthetically pleasing, professional look that reinforces the store’s brand. The right environment keeps employees happy, increases productivity, and creates a good experience for the customer, which helps improve the bottom line.

It all starts with acoustics and keeping noise levels reduced. Acoustical ceiling tiles and acoustical wall panels can help dramatically reduce noise, in both open and closed environments, and also helps attain specific levels of privacy. Customers do not want to be in the changing room and feel as if everyone else in the store can hear what they are saying. Speech Privacy can be measured by Privacy Index (PI) and the levels are:

  • Confidential (95-100%)
  • Non-Intrusive/Normal (80-95%)
  • Marginal/Poor (60-80%)
  • No Privacy (0-60%)

Ceilings and Lighting

Lighting is also a critical factor in the store, and choosing the right ceiling system can contribute to better lighting. But the right ceiling system can also help resist mold and mildew, which helps maintain the indoor air quality. Many acoustical ceilings are also made from high-recycled-content, which can contribute LEED credits to your building.

From a visual perspective, you can create an impressive look and feel that helps enhance the brand in both open and closed spaces with metal ceilings, wood ceilings, and canopies.

Wall Systems

The walls of the store also contribute to the environment, and the materials from which they are made need to be durable and last. You can frame your walls with cold formed steel studs, metal studs, or a complete drywall framing system. When it comes to finishing the walls, we offer a wide selection of gypsum boards for just about any application. We also offer wall systems that can bring a nice finish to the interior of the space, dressing rooms, and offices.
