VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Luxor Industrial Corporation (Pink Sheets:LXRRF) (TSX-V:LRL) is pleased to announce its patented IBS2000® engineered bridging has received recognition in a recent issue of This Old House Magazine.
For "Stiffening Bouncy Floors" the magazine states "These days, many new floors are framed with I-joists, a type of engineered lumber that's a fraction of the weight of conventional lumber and capable of spanning greater distances. Still, if asked to span too great a distance, I-joists will bounce. As a rule, the same kinds of methods that take the bounce out of solid-lumber floors work for I-joists...many pros have praised Luxor's IBS2000®, an interlocking bridge system sized to fit between the flanges of I-joists for quick added stiffness."
Luxor's IBS2000® structurally lock floor joists together forcing the floor to act as a system thereby adding strength and rigidity while virtually eliminating bounce and vibration. IBS2000® is used with both I-joists and lumber joists in new construction and is used to retrofit bouncy I-joist and lumber floors in existing construction. . Recently, a homeowner using IBS2000® to retrofit a floor, commented "Well, I've received and installed the entire system. The floor on the 17' span side of my house is now stiffer than the floor on the 10' span side…Not a squeak in it anywhere. I will post my satisfaction on youtube or wherever you think it would help you the most, and will highly recommend your product to anyone I meet who has a similar issue."
The Company has received an order for 915 units of IBS2000® for use with I-joists in a custom home in Etobicoke, Ontario. Based on previous applications, the builder wishes to use IBS2000® throughout the home for spans ten feet and longer. The sale was to Rona Inc. the leading distributor and retailer in its market in Canada, operating a network of over 500 stores.
