Evo-Lite Ultra Lightweight Condenser Pad

The AHR Expo is a great opportunity for Evolve to check the pulse and the direction of where the market is heading.

With the 2013 AHR Expo only weeks away, Evolve Composites is busy preparing for this largest and most highly recognized HVAC event in the world. The AHR Expo,which will take place in Dallas, TX January 28-30, gives manufacturers across the country the opportunity to showcase their latest innovations and services. With over 30,000 engineers, contractors, manufacturers, distributors and other HVAC professionals expected to attend, Evolve is poised to take center stage with their expanding lineup of HVAC product innovations.

“The AHR Expo establishes the industry standard for product development,” explained Evolve’s Rick Mabry, Director of Sales –HVAC, Pool and Plumbing. “The AHR Expo is a great opportunity for Evolve to check the pulse and the direction of where the market is heading. We will evaluate the accomplishments of the past season and reset the bar for our customers and the market for the season ahead. With our robust lineup of products being welcomed into distribution daily, we are truly honored and excited to participate in the show and demonstrate once again our ability to lead technological and customer centric change.”

“The introduction of the Evo-Lite ultra lightweight condenser pad has received nothing but positive feedback from contractors and distributors,” Mabry explained. “Once contractors get this pad in their hands they are in complete disbelief at how light and durable it is. This pad is the game changer for them, delivering the durability and confidence that true concrete delivers and the user friendliness they need. This ultra lightweight concrete pad delivers an HVAC pad with the strength and look of concrete without any sacrifice of performance or ability.” Evo-Lite is constructed using Evolve’s proprietary blend of lightweight concrete and a high density foam core, which delivers excellent strength and weight bearing properties. Evo-Lite also features full concrete corners and thicker critical wall and surface structures. The Evo-Lite foam core is designed to repel pest such as termites, adding further distinction and value points to end users, including the end consumer.

Evo-Set PVC fittings and the Polyslab Plastic Equipment Pad will also be highlighted at the upcoming AHR Expo in January. With Evolve’s growing footprint of PVC sales spreading, the addition of PVC fittings to their product lineup offers a vast variety to equip any builder with the right tools to get the job done.

The Polyslab’s unique design leads the way in the plastic pad market place and is staged to steal the spotlight at the AHR Expo. The Polyslab delivers a multitude of benefits, starting with its unique nesting ability which allows for 31 pads to stack on a pallet, saving contractors and distributors valuable floor space. This positions Evolve Composites as an innovator in solutions that consider all partners in the chain: warehousing distributor and installing contractors. This is in addition to the overall product performance features, capability and value it delivers.

Also new to the Evolve Composites' lineup this season was the PolyconX Polyslab pad connector. The PolyconX is specifically engineered to enhance the capabilities and flexibility of the ever-popular Polyslab plastic pad. The PolyconX allows the end user to join multiple Polyslab bases together securely, forming an even larger base footprint. This gives distributors and contractors tremendous flexibility and sku rationalization opportunity. The PolyconX will allow a single person to create much larger HVAC pads specifically for the vast packaged unit market, but can be used for any application. “It is a product that is in demand and we are the first to introduce such an innovative solution to the package unit and large footprint unitary product markets of HVAC. We will be exhibiting its impressive capabilities at the show in January as well,” Mabry said.

Rounding out the 2012 Evolve Composites HVAC Equipment Pad specific line up are:

** Evo-Crete – the full FRCC concrete based pad. With maximum toughness and durability, Evo-Crete delivers heavy duty performance while maintaining its aesthetically pleasing appearance and user friendly weight qualities that equal up to 1/3 the weight of traditional aggregate based concrete pads.

** Evo-Slab – the high performance pad with the heavier weight qualities of the Evo-Crete, but at an even greater reduced weight attributed to its high density foam core. This innovative core design allows for the Evo-Slab to be drilled into while still providing maximum strength and thickness at the critical corner areas and sidewalls while utilizing the same pest repelling attributes as the Evo-Lite.

** Both the Evo-Crete and Evo-Slab have signed and certified engineering documents available for contractors and distributors in markets where strong wind codes are in place, particularly the state of Florida.

“We continue to strive for added value and innovative solutions with pad products we introduce,” Mabry said. “These products are not just pads; these are the answers to what the HVAC professional has been asking for. We provide pads that meet their needs and are user friendly, innovative and performance driven at a great price with no sacrifice of quality,” said Mabry. “It isn’t just a pad, but the true ‘base’ for one of the largest and most critical investments made on most homes today, the home comfort system. We believe when all things are equal in this competitive unitary landscape, Evolve HVAC equipment pad products offer the distributor and the contractor clear differentiation and value points they can demonstrate and provide to their customers.”

Evolve will be showcasing all of these pad products and other items of innovation at the 2013 AHR Expo in Dallas, Texas January 28-30 at Booth 3988.
