Approved by DirecTV® Dish® Network and WildBlue™.

Major Builders are now incorporating Commdeck ( into their construction process. Builders and Developers discovered that 50% of new home owners are subscribing to satellite service within one year of closing on their new home even in areas where cable service is available. A further push to use these systems came from management companies working for builders. Builders and Home Owners Associations (HOA) continued to discover property damage and aesthetic issues resulting from current dish and antenna installation methods. Commdeck and Commtile (designed for tile roofs) have since become the products of choice to resolve these issues and have now allowed builders and HOAs’ to successfully prewire and plan for satellite in every home. Developers can organize and control the dish and antenna locations while protecting their customer's investment and eliminating unsightly coaxial cables on the exterior of buildings. Commdeck and Commtile are delivering these benefits to the building industry in a way never before available.

DirecTV, Echostar and Wild Blue Industries have also recognized the value of these systems and have approved the mounting of their equipment on the Commdeck systems. Commdeck and Commtile are weathertight, leak proof, and formed from 18 and 16 gauge steel that serve as both an enclosure for the coaxial cables and a mount. Designed to withstand windloads in excess of 100MPH, both systems are powdercoated to surpass industry specifications. A simple installation process, Commdeck and Commtile install and look like common roof vents. These seamless mounting platforms are inexpensive and dishes can be easily installed and removed at any time. Steve Capozzi President of RSTC Enterprises/Commdeck said, “Now, Builders, Developers, Home Owners Associations and Home Owners can control the installation of dishes, appearance of the property and protect their investment from lag bolt damage with one simple affordable system.

Along with builders and developers, Commdeck targets quality custom installers, low voltage contractors and the integrator markets through their normal marketing. Both products are ideal for pre-wire installations and come with a complete hardware package and installation instructions.

Ron Dickerson, Vice President of RSTC Enterprises/Commdeck said “Our company continues to grow and we are very please to have our products approved and installed by many of the top 50 builders including, Centex Homes, K Hovnanian, Lennar, Pasquinelli and Rottlund, along with many others. We are now seeing our mounting systems become a standard throughout the country. Commdeck products will last the life of a home and roof warranties, including workmanship, remain in tact. It only makes sense for builders and installers to offer this product line as an attractive and sensible addition to a home. For installers, Commdeck offers an easy add-on opportunity to every installation. One of our marketing initiatives is to provide installers with additional products that will benefit their customers and add dollars to their sales with every installation.”

Katie Stuemke, Operations Administrator for K Hovnanian Homes, a publicly held development company with over 3,000 employees across the country said “Commdeck is installed on our single family homes in the prewiring phase as the homes are being built. We did some research and had our property management personal do more research and we found that Commdeck was the solution to our satellite installation issues. These issues included not voiding the roofing warrantees, water intrusion problems and grounding issues that we were dealing with. Commdeck is the only answer we’ve found that will solve all of these problems.”

In addition to Commdeck and Commtile, RSTC is marketing several other unique mounting kits. Retrodeck™, is used to remount a dish or antenna when re-roofing homes or for new installations and is easy to install and remove without damage. No cutting of shingles is necessary. Deckadaptor™ is the Antenna mounting kit designed to support a standard 1 1/4-1 1/2” Off-Air antenna mast when mounting to a Commdeck, Commtile or Retrodeck system. The antenna mast slides into the Deckadapter for easy application, providing a damage free installation and removal, eliminating the need for a tri-pod.

Their newest mounting system is Decklock™, another dish or antenna mounting solution for decks. Its unique design allows a dish or antenna to securely clamp to the rim joist on any type of wood or composite decking material with no damage due to lag bolts. All of the Commdeck products will be on display at the upcoming International Homebuilders Show in Orlando, February 7-10 in booth S11573.
