Weyerhaeuser Distribution has expanded its offering of Homasote 440 SoundBarrier panels to its distribution centers in Denver, Co.;  Dallas and Houston, Tx.; and Tacoma, Wa.

The company has had growing success with distributing the sound-deadening boards in recent years through its distribution centers in Boise, Id., and Fresno, Stockton, Fontana and Santa Clarita, Ca.

“We’ve been experiencing strong results of distributing these products in high-density housing markets throughout California and feel there’s a good fit for expanding that distribution into Texas, Washington, and Colorado,” says David Helmers, vice president of Weyerhaeuser Distribution. “The capabilities of 440 SoundBarrier to control sound in floors, walls and ceilings can be a remarkable asset to any builder, but especially to those working in the multi-family housing market.”

Independently lab tested and time-proven in millions of square feet of residential and commercial structures, 440 SoundBarrier is a special-density, structural board made from 100 percent environmental Homasote cellulose fiber containing 98% recycled product. The homogeneous composition is manufactured with uniformly distributed protection against termites, rot, and fungi along with resistance to mold, mildew, and moisture. The Made in America boards also insulate, with twice the R-value of wood.
