PNP Craftsmen Skimcoaters attend TRUFIG flushmount training in NYC
Thursday, November 18, 2010
PNP Craftsmen's skimcoaters spent some time yesterday with electricians, carpenters and project management in an on site demonstration of the new to NYC TRUFIG flushmount system. Most designers and architects will be familiar with skimmed over speakers or flushmount taped in light fixtures, with this new TRUFIG system virtually all other devices can have the same look. A level 5 skimcoat wall finish is required. The system seems very well designed with the both the installing trades and the final look well considered. Metal boxes and other features take into account unique requirements of New York City and other major cities where plastic boxes are not allowed. The resulting clean look of a TRUFIG wall needs to be seen to be appreciated. Here is a gallery of some of the installs.
The training was informative, using the system does change how the job sequenced in some cases and while it is probably best that the system be designed in from the start, it was not in this case and it did not seem to be much of an issue to accommodate it.
We are confident that architects, interior designers and our clients will love the look. We look forward to posting pictures of the finished installation when they are available.
