We have reviewed with interest the technical information you have developed and provided regarding the VersaDry Framing Track system.
As you are aware, the continuing problems associated with moisture I wetness, i.e. mold intrusion in drywall construction for new projects continues to be an industry problem especially in healthcare.
By all accounts, it seems that your VersaDry system will provide an economical and "schedule friendly" solution, please keep us abreast of your progress in bringing this product to market.

I had our Quality Control Department review the VersaDry framing track system and we heartily recommend you pursue acquiring testing laboratory approvals. If you can bring your product to market, Array will specify it in all eight (8) regional offices.
Your VersaDry framing track system differentiates itself from other partition track systems in preventing mold on gypsum wall board (GWB), and it is efficient in storing and facilitates brevity in construction schedules.
Mold is becoming an increasingly significant concern of healthcare providers, designers and contractors and I believe your product can tap into the zeitgeist of mold prevention and become very successful.
Please keep me informed of your progress in bringing this product to market.
Having spent some time reviewing the VersaDry framing track system that you have designed and developed, we believe that this is a good product with several potential benefits for the construction industry.
It appears to offer value both in reducing waste and speeding construction by avoiding costly remediation and also providing a better performing, longer-lasting wall.
This is the type of product that our clients in the healthcare and research realms would appreciate. They all are enormously concerned about mold growth in these environments. If this product were readily available, Ballinger would definitely consider specifying the product, even at a premium price. Please keep us informed of your progress in bringing this product to market.

We have reviewed the VersaDry framing track system you have designed and developed, and believe it is a good product with many potential benefits for construction projects.
It will simplify and accelerate wall installation, particularly in research and health care environments with moisture and cleanliness issues, and provide a superior finish condition. This configuration provides separation of vulnerable gypsum wallboard from potential wetness, uniform support for flooring to wall transition materials, and consistent flatness and appearance.
Our clients would be most appreciative of this product, and TK&A would definitely consider specifying this system, even at a premium material cost, because of the installation and long-term maintenance cost savings.

Our technical department has been looking for a solution to the problem of moisture and infection control at the base of gypsum board walls, and the VersaDry framing track system, designed and developed by you, seems like it will be a product that will accomplish this.
We are looking forward to including this system in our specifications for future healthcare work when it becomes available in the construction marketplace.

Principal and Director
We have spent a considerable time reviewing the VersaDry framing track system that you have designed and developed. It is a superior product that will guarantee high quality, problem free construction during the initial build and for years of use.
If this product were readily available, even at a premium price, we would include it in all of our specifications for both speculative and institutional projects. I am convinced that it will eliminate waste and damage to projects during construction and help eliminate mold growth and costly remediation.
VersaDry track will speed the construction schedule and provide long-term satisfaction to building users.
Please keep me informed of your progress in bringing this product to the market so that we can begin specifying it on our projects.
