Custom Building Products (http://www.custombuildingproducts.com/) enhances its overall product offering with the launch of a complete line of high-quality profile and transition finishing strips and edge trim. Available in a variety of popular styles, designs and finishes, CUSTOM’s new Profiles and Transitions create smooth transitions between rooms, bridge gaps between different types of flooring or tile materials and protect the edges of ceramic tile and natural stone for an even, professional finish.

The line includes four families of beautiful, durable trim and edge pieces, suitable for floors, steps and walls: Square-edged Profiles, Decorative Profiles, Step Profiles and Transition and Compensator Profiles. These are available in a variety of durable, popular materials including anodized, chrome-plated or coated aluminum, stainless steel, solid brass and PVC. Finishes and colors are designer-inspired to complement today’s most popular looks. Stronger than typical alternatives, CUSTOM’s profiles and transitions resist dings, dents, bending and twisting. Square-edged profiles are ideal for protecting tile edges and are among the most commonly used transitions because they complement a wide range of installations. ProFloor™ is an “L channel,” designed for installations where tile meets carpet, or where tile ends, in order to protect tile from damage and create a beautiful, clean finish. It is also ideal for use on walls, countertops, steps, expansion joints and decorative edging. ProCurve™ is CUSTOM’s flexible square-edged profile designed to bend, twist and curve for wavy, curved or irregular edges.  Decorative Profiles are designed for finishing corners and bridging potentially hazardous and unsightly gaps. ProRound™ is a durable and cost-effective alternative to bullnose tile, creating an attractive corner finish for floors, walls and countertops. ProDecor™ Q is a square profile designed to protect edges and outside corners from damage, and it is an excellent choice as an end-cover for outer edges of tile and stone surfaces. It can be used to create an aesthetically-pleasing decorative accent along the edges of floors, walls and counters. Matching corner pieces are available with ProDecor Q and ProRound transitions. ProDecor™ T is an attractive and functional solution to conceal inconsistent joints, or to bridge gaps between floor treatments of the same height, such as tile, stone, laminate, parquet and wood. Stair installations present specific challenges and CUSTOM’s ProBasic Step Profiles protect stair edges with an attractive, slip-free stair nose. ProBasic is very effective in commercial, high-traffic areas.

The ProNivo™ transition and compensator profile family protects tile edges while providing smooth, attractive transitions between floor coverings of varying heights through reducers and carpet tuck channels.

LATICRETE  announced today the expansion of its LATICRETE HYDRO BAN line of products, including a pre-sloped linear shower pan, preformed benches and shelves, and new drain finishes. The HYDRO BAN Shower System provides the installer a high quality rapid shower installation with unique design possibilities. According to LATICRETE Product Manager, Jay Conrod, “At Surfaces, we’ll be debuting four new SKUs of our pre-sloped linear shower pans as well as new sizes of pre-formed benches and shelves. All of these products are constructed of lightweight high-density polystyrene and are 100% waterproof. Once set in place, they function as substrates onto which tile can immediately be adhered.”

Conrod went on to state that new drain finishes will be unveiled as well. “These include brushed, polished, oil-rubbed bronze and tile-in-grate versions. A 42-inch linear drain will be added to the sizes offered,” he said. All these new “Made-in-America” products pass ANSI 818.10 standards and offer the LATICRETE Lifetime Warranty/Single Source Responsibility which ensures total confidence for re-sellers, installers and end-users.
