You are probably familiar Post-it and have used Post-it® Notes whether at home or at the office. They have taken things to a new level and introduced a product that we believe is going to really be great for us in the construction industry. This new product is called Post-it® Extreme XL Notes.
Post-it® Extreme XL Notes
Communication, efficiency, and quality are the main focuses of A Finer Touch Construction. We continue to seek out the best products and tools for our team, as well as our trade partners. During our visit to the NAHB International Builder Show in Orlando in 2018, we visited the Post-it® Brand booth to see some of their new products.
Construction sites, especially here in Arizona, present very challenging conditions. Between the dust, monsoon storms, and 100+ degree heat, having products that can withstand these elements is crucial. Just as critical on the job site is great communication. Poor communication can lead to major problems and expensive fixes. This is where Post-it® Extreme XL Notes come in.
Post-it® Extreme XL Notes are an innovative product designed to facilitate communication in tough conditions, helping you stop the re-work and get the job done. With ultra-strong Dura-Hold™ Paper and Adhesive, Post-it® Extreme XL Notes stick securely to a variety of tough surfaces including treated, untreated, and painted lumber; galvanized and stainless steel; aluminum; painted metal; house wrap; concrete; tile; brick; curved surfaces such as pipes; and more. Additionally, Post-it® Extreme XL Notes are durable, writable, and water-resistant meaning they can withstand extreme conditions such as water, moisture, and hot (120ºF) and cold (0ºF) temperatures. Additionally, they are larger than the standard Post-it® Notes at 4 ½” x 6 ¾”.
These characteristics are some of the reasons why we were excited to learn about this product and why we have begun to incorporate them on our job sites to improve our communication with both our team members and our subcontractors. We are able to leave important messages and instructions on the Post-it® Extreme XL Notes and stick them directly on the surface that needs attention and know they are going to hold up to the elements. Our team uses the Post-it® Extreme XL Notes to call out machinery in need of fuel and to instruct the crew of next steps! These notes will certainly continue to be put to the test with our extreme summer upon us and we will get to see first-hand how they work in the 100+ degree heat and monsoon storms.
