DriAG Systems Inc. Receives 3rd Party Validation for Proprietary Products for Construction Industry
For Immediate Release – Annandale, VA – March 20, 2018 – Talia M. Zerkle, President and Founder of DriAG Systems Inc announced today that DriAG has received independent evaluation reports from Tri Environmental Inc, a full service independent engineering lab based in Austin, TX. The report covers DriAG’s proprietary product line and evaluates them for compliance with the 2018 International Building Code (IBC) and International Residential Code (IRC). This level of compliance enables engineers, architects, building inspectors and others to incorporate DriAG’s innovative solutions, supporting the growth of interest to increase profitability while not compromising on quality.
“We are excited,” noted Ms. Zerkle, “as this report highlights the culmination of decades of our family’s leadership in the concrete, foundation and irrigation system industries. Between my dad’s engineering prowess, perseverance and an in-depth appreciation for the contractors who would use the products, DriAG now has a product line that combines the best of concepts and applications, bringing to the market a package of common sense solutions that are not only environmentally sound – but also capable of major savings for construction and site contracting companies.”
Unveiling the report at a meeting of engineers and contractors in Cheshire, CT, Chuck Moyher, DriAG’s Executive Vice President Engineering & Research/Development discussed the multiple applications associated with his cuspated geotextile design configuration incorporating a drainage pipe and a textile material known commercially as TYPAR®. Moyher added, “DriAG has in fact positioned an all-inclusive system solution for what others in the industry always knew was needed but chose to sell in separate parts. We’ve taken those parts and combined innovation with an understanding of the challenges contractors face in the field every day. Our proprietary products are the result of a vision that is now accepted as compliant with International Building Code 2018 and International Residential Code 2018, giving DriAG’s solutions acceptability throughout the United States.”
Moyher added, “With the results of the Tri/Environmental testing report, we can promote the efficiency of our proprietary solutions as reducing the amount of energy needed in drainage, radon and air flow systems. The financial impact of these savings, in some cases as high as 50% when compared to conventional methods alone, is generating inquiries and requests for quotes – as contractors are very encouraged by the ability to increase their profit margins, while making their pricing to the market that much more competitive as they deliver a much greater energy efficient structure.”
