Using Cornerstone's ResinDek® Saves Significant Money for Retailers' Distribution Centers

CINCINNATI, OH -- Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products, LLC product line ResinDek® not only works well for mezzanine flooring, it is saving significant money in expansions and remodeling of work platforms.

"We were able to pull in cost reductions in the footings, structural steel, and erection costs by using ResinDek® instead of concrete. We created savings of well over $600,000 on one project," commented Russell Bergeron, President of Tri-R-Erecting and General Contractor on this project.

"In today's economy, it is important to look for every opportunity to use resources wisely. Since our ResinDek® flooring products are engineered to withstand live dead pallet jack limits up to 8,000 lbs., we started to do the math of converting elevated platforms that were specified to use concrete over to ResinDek® panels. Once the traditional mindset was changed, we found that we could save some customers well over a million dollars in their work platform expansions and upgrades," stated Greg Doppler, President of Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products, LLC.

"The structural integrity of using ResinDek® panels instead of concrete has been analyzed and approved by independent engineering firms so we know we have a solid cost savings approach. And in the current economic climate, that could mean the difference between a go and no-go project for many users of elevated platforms," continued Greg Doppler.

Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products works with architects, contractors, facility managers, business partners, and other distribution center experts to specify the best ResinDek® product for the application.
