Ed Peterson V.P. Sales & Marketing Introducing the latest UltraLox Interlocking™ machine

The LOX8 machine has a very small footprint and along with a single 8’ pallet rack of product, which will convert to 3,500 lineal feet of finished railing, ONLY requires 200 square feet. The UltraLox™ LOX8 targets contractors/builders who build 50 or more decks per year

THE ULTRALOX DIFFERENCE

UltraLox™ has changed the rules of Aluminum Railing. LBM suppliers can add product value and increase profit margins by leveraging the UltraLox Interlocking Machine to control how aluminum, powder-coated railing is produced, stocked and delivered. This is a transformative approach to producing railings, providing UltraLox customer’s (dealers) with the ability to dramatically reduce inventory costs, warehouse requirements, freight costs and damage issues.

In return, dealers have the ability to achieve levels of efficiency, customer service and profitability above and beyond standard practice.

WHAT THE INSTALLERS ARE SAYING
