Owens Corning updates product packaging

Owens Corning, Toledo, Ohio, has updated its product packaging for flat-packed, plastic-wrapped shingles and shingle components. The redesigned packaging is intended to make it easier for installers to access product details and instructions.

Installers now can use smart devices to access installation instructions available via an interactive website listed on each package. Each package also features a QR code at the top and bottom of the poly-wrap package. Interactive access allows installation instructions to remain intact and unwrinkled after packaging is opened. Instructions are available in English and Spanish in the U.S. and in English, Spanish and French in Canada.

Other modifications include more prominent callouts for attributes associated with different products such as algae resistance, warranty protection and Class 4 impact resistance. Packaging features the American flag icon denoting shingle products made in the U.S.

Owens Corning is maintaining its PINK™ color scheme on shingle packaging with color bars denoting specific product lines, such as a black bar for TruDefinition® Duration® shingles and a red bar for the TruDefinition Oakridge® product line. The spines of packaging remain the same for easy locating in a supply house.
