Tolko T-ply Offers New Features and Industry-Leading Warranties


Expanded Tolko T-ply Portfolio Offers New Product Features and Industry-Leading Warranties

[VERNON, BRITISH COLUMBIA] July 4, 2013 – Tolko Industries, Ltd. has introduced a robust line of its proprietary T-Ply products unmatched in the softwood plywood products industry.

Tolko asked customers how we could improve the plywood products they’ve known and trusted for years and identified unmet needs in the residential market. Hardy Wentzel, Tolko vice president of sales and marketing, said: “Our customers care about the quality and performance of flooring, underlayment and specialty industrial panels. Tolko has developed an expanded line of differentiated, high quality products engineered to meet their needs. No other softwood plywood manufacturers in Canada currently offer a premium floor panel or provide explicit warranty against delamination. Tolko has partnered with dealers, builders and other end-users for more than 50 years, and we are confident they will welcome this expanded array of T-Ply products.”

The T-Ply portfolio includes plywood sheathing, tongue-and-groove plywood subflooring and plywood underlayment, ranging from everyday values to performance-plus products, with its Tolko Ultra T&G Subfloor and Tolko ULAY Premium Underlayment products the best that money can buy. The products are backed by industry-leading 25- and 50-year transferable warranties.

Engineered specifically for home builders in the entry level, move-up and custom markets, the Tolko T-Ply product lineup includes good, better and best flooring panels with new product features, as well as good and better roof and wall sheathing, backed by enhanced packaging and explicit warranties. In addition to its ULAY premium underlayment product, the company has added a select-grade underlayment product, T-Ply Pro, to meet underlayment market demand from do-it-yourselfers. New product features were thoughtfully designed and manufactured to increase builders’ productivity and profitability in today’s highly competitive market.

Tolko T-Ply products are available now through Tolko dealers and distributors across Canada.

CanWel Building Materials Group, with headquarters in Vancouver, B.C., is the exclusive distributor in Canada of Tolko T-Ply Ultra T&G Subfloor, Tolko T-Ply Pro Underlayment and Tolko ULAY Premium Underlayment.
