Fypon Products a Hit at Builders' Show
Fypon's warm, welcoming home set-up was a popular spot at the 2018 International Builders' Show in Orlando. A front porch with two rocking chairs welcomed builders, contractors, architects and dealers into the space to view Fypon's newest additions - Shaker Shutters and the Craftsman Cove and Step Crossheads. If the porch set-up didn't do it, the polyurethane woodgrain beams were a popular draw. Although, not many people realized they weren't wood at first.
"I think the most popular action was booth visitors knocking on the woodgrain beams to see if they were real wood or Fypon," said Mary Nesper, Product Manager, Fypon. "Giving our customers the chance to see not only the beams, but shutters, crossheads and column wraps, beats them seeing them in a catalog any day."
Another centerpiece were the mantels made using Fypon beams and end caps. The woodgrain pieces were all stained to match. The Craftsman Cove Crosshead surrounded a Therma-Tru door to complete a front door look, and the Craftsman Stepped Crosshead was shown over a window to show the diversity of the product. A fun use of the woodgrain boards was a barn door shown on the back of the booth, a unique use of the products.
