Duct products maker Carlisle HVAC has been given a Silver Gaia Award by the organizers of the Big 5 International Building and Construction Show.

The award was for the company’s RE-500, a robot-applied insulation encapsulation product.  It was chosen from more than 120 entries in the green building industry competition.

“Being a Gaia Award winner is a significant achievement for Carlisle HVAC,” said Billy Prewitt, the company’s marketing manager.  “It has always been our goal to provide the highest quality product while preserving our environment and its resources.”  

When RE-500 is used with ISAAC (Inspecting, Sealing and Advanced Cleaning Robotic System), the low-volatile organic compound coating is ideal for  projects such as hospitals and schools, officials said. Its finish will prevent debris accumulation that could lead to mold, they added.
