2021 has arrived with some new issues. We are being asked quite often about the steel shortage (purchase restrictions) that are beginning to handicap the construction industry. One item we have seen a shortage of on the west coast is the proprietary RC channels. These proprietary RC channels are the most specified version of RC channel. The shortage of this specific channel has started to affect the construction of new muti-family housing.
The shortage has allowed the RC-1 Boost to replace the once only option for RC channel. The RC-1 Boost has higher performance and has several manufacturer options. The RC-1 Boost allows the construction to proceed with better acoustics, Fire ratings, and flexibility to choose your manufacturer.
