Construction Specialties Earns Two Awards for Innovation

CS has been honored with awards from two leading publications for its Acrovyn by Design® Wall Protection

Construction Specialties Inc. (CS), a leading manufacturer of high-performing architectural specialty products, has been honored with awards from two leading publications for its Acrovyn by Design® Wall Protection. Both awards were presented in conjunction with NeoCon 2015, the largest commercial interiors show in North America, taking place at The Merchandise Mart in Chicago since 1969.

Acrovyn by Design is a transformative product that blends art with protection

BUILDINGS magazine recognized Acrovyn by Design with a Merit Award (2nd) for innovative product design that enhances the efficiency and sustainability of commercial buildings. BUILDINGS’ 20th annual Product Innovations award – exclusively for NeoCon exhibitors – highlights the best that performance and aesthetics can offer to building owners and facility managers.
During Interior Design’s Giants Celebration event, the magazine presented Acrovyn by Design with its HiP Honoree Award in the Workplace Wall Coverings category. The 2nd Annual HiP at NeoCon Awards honor commercial industry pioneers and innovative products to recognize achievement in design solutions and product applications.
Acrovyn by Design is a transformative product that blends art with protection, giving architects, interior designers and graphic artists a new way to enhance spaces and, in turn, occupant experiences. CS’ innovation preserves art, photography, logos and other imagery using impact-resistant PVC-free material so walls remain beautiful and easy-to-clean for years to come.

“With Acrovyn by Design, everything from custom artwork to brand messaging can be displayed on walls simply with a high-resolution file, placement specifications and elevation details,” said Dave Bronovicki, CS National Sales Manager. “Gone are the days of creating large digital files the size of the actual project simply to retain quality. And, high performance materials mean that the art has staying power. The stunning results are, as these awards demonstrate, award winning.”
Acrovyn by Design was developed to protect interior wall surfaces and doors in high-traffic areas of commercial buildings, most commonly healthcare, education and corporate environments. The performance, installation and maintenance features are the same as regular Acrovyn, the leading wall protection solution for over 45 years. Available in 4’x8′ and 4’x10′ sheets, Acrovyn by Design can protect and enhance any wall space with high resolution graphics. From subtle visual textures and refined patterns to vivid, space-defining imagery, Acrovyn by Design offers limitless possibilities that can complement CS Acrovyn’s existing wall and door protection suite.

Almost any photograph, graphic, pattern, branding or messaging can be digitally embedded behind our durable PVC-free sheet.
