CertainTeed Corporation, Valley Forge, PA, announced that two of its products, ToughGard2 Textile Duct Liner and SoftTouch premium duct wrap will be used in the construction of the new Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago.
Trump Tower is scheduled to open in 2009. The structure will occupy 2.6 million gross sq.ft., and stand 1,362 feet tall. It will be the second tallest building in Chicago, and one of the five tallest in the U.S.
The building’s design plans call for 472 super-luxury condominiums, 286 five-star luxury hotel condominium guest rooms, as well as retail, parking, health club and spa space.
According to CertainTeed, the two products will work simultaneously to provide a double dose of protection from air leakage, crosstalk and condensation.
