The Passive Fire Protection You’ve Wanted All Along!

Cavity-SHIELD Fiberglass Batts

Ask us about installing NEW Cavity-SHIELD multifamily, concealed-space, noncombustible fiberglass batts!

Cavity-SHIELD fiberglass is National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) 13 compliant, noncombustible and cost-effective insulation. It is designed for use in concealed spaces between floors within wood-framed multifamily housing.

  • Simple installation: Batts are friction-fit into cavities, without the need for special equipment, reducing the time and resources required for installers to complete the job.
  • Cost-effective alternative: Cavity-SHIELD is another option for construction professionals looking for passive fire protection and a cost-effective alternative to blow-in or sprinklers in the interstitial space.
  • Sound control: Expect noise between floors to reduce significantly.

Hiring Great People Is More Than a Gut Feeling

Tips for hiring to avoid costly mistakes.

As a leader, there’s little that’s more important than hiring great people for your team. Consider this:

  • Finding people is HARD: U.S. unemployment rate is 3.7%, a nearly 50-year low.
  • Finding GOOD people is harder: $37 billion is spent annually to keep unproductive employees who don’t even understand their job.
  • KEEPING good people is hardest: With competition for talent high, the average construction turnover rate is 21.4% (for people age 24 and younger, the turnover rate is 64%).
  • Poor hiring is EXPENSIVE: Bad hires require additional supervision, create conflict and make the leader’s job harder. The average cost of a turnover is 16-20% of the person’s base salary.

Like so many of you, we’re continuously challenged to find and retain great team members.

Kinzler Construction Services Chief Talent Officer Brian Schwartze recently shared 12 hiring tips with our hiring managers. In the video below, hear three of those tips to give yourself the best chance of finding the right person.


Whataburger Restaurant Tyler, TX

Whataburger restaurant located in Tyler, TX.

Kinzler Construction Services insulates new restaurant in Tyler.

When you’re enjoying the great food inside Tyler’s newest Whataburger restaurant, you can also enjoy the building’s comfort thanks to a quality insulation install from Kinzler!

This project required some problem-solving from our expert team because the 2×6 roof trusses did not allow space to install the specified R38 insulation using a traditional staple-in method. Instead, our installers did a “wire-up” install, using nails and 16ga galvanized steel wire to hang the batt insulation into place.

As always, the project was inspected for quality and the customer was very happy with the speed and quality of the installation!
