Dietrich Metal Framing Announces UltraSTEEL

On September 22nd, Dietrich Metal Framing, a Worthington Industries company announced that it is introducing to the North American market, Dietrich UltraSTEEL(TM) metal framing products using patented technology of Hadley Industries PLC.

A licensing agreement grants Dietrich Metal Framing the exclusive rights to manufacture and sell metal framing using the UltraSTEEL(TM) technology in North America.

"We believe this to be one of the most innovative technology offerings in the metal framing industry," said Ed Ponko, President of Dietrich Metal Framing. "Dietrich UltraSTEEL(TM) Framing provides benefits throughout the construction chain."

"Hadley Industries is extremely excited to be working with Dietrich Metal Framing," stated Phillip Hadley, Managing Director. "Combining the talents of Hadley's technical staff with Dietrich's technical and marketing abilities should make UltraSTEEL(TM) the most successful metal framing product in North America."

UltraSTEEL(TM) is an internationally patented method of altering the characteristics of the base strip steel providing higher strength material. Additional benefits include superior fire performance and enhanced acoustical performance. All of these benefits have been verified by independent sources and the product has received certification by Underwriters Laboratories. In focus groups, building owners and architects were impressed with the significant acoustical and fire benefits of UltraSTEEL(TM). Contractors readily recognized that the product would improve the speed and quality of the building process by allowing for faster and better fastening of both the framing products and wallboard.

Dietrich UltraSTEEL(TM) framing products are already available in Florida and will systematically be rolled out across North America as other Dietrich manufacturing facilities convert to the UltraSTEEL(TM) process.
