MasterSpec® to Customize Specification for Unique Georgia-Pacific® Products

ATLANTA (April 25, 2017) – Georgia-Pacific is proud to announce that ARCOM, the leader in specifications, has created a customized specification section – 061600 Air and Water Resistive Sheathing Board – to accurately specify Georgia-Pacific’s unique DensElement™ Barrier System. Now architects, engineers and design professionals can specify Georgia-Pacific’s innovative system with the precision they’ve always relied upon in ARCOM’s software platforms. The creation of the customized section confirms the DensElement™ Barrier System is a viable consideration for any building project.

ARCOM and Georgia-Pacific worked together to create the specification, ensuring proper and exact details. “Our partnership with ARCOM continues to benefit specifiers who are looking for progressive products to solve their building challenges. Instead of forcing our innovative DensElement™ Barrier System into sections designed for traditional products, ARCOM worked with us to create a section appropriate to this new system we’ve developed,” said Brent Paugh, president for Georgia-Pacific Gypsum.

ARCOM and Georgia-Pacific are committed to helping all design professionals more easily and accurately select and specify products for their projects. In addition to the new customized section 061656 Air and Water Resistive Sheathing Board, Georgia-Pacific’s product catalog and data sheets are also easily accessible to specifiers.
