Xcluder Unveils New Logo and Package Design

Supplier News

The new logo and package design better reflects the company’s growing range of pest control solutions.

| March 17, 2014

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. –  Xcluder has unveiled a new logo and package design to better reflect its growing range of pest control solutions.  Launched in 2007 as a steel wool-based exclusion material for pest control professionals, the Xcluder brand has expanded to include a more comprehensive set of pest control products: rodent-proof door sweeps, rodent-proof garage door and dock leveler seals, Xcluder Geo and the Xcluder Consumer DIY Kit.  Xcluder's patented combination of stainless steel and poly-fiber creates a permanent barrier against rats, mice and other pests. Xcluder's effectiveness is unmatched in the industry and it is the only exclusion material tested and proven effective by the USDA ‘s APHIS lab.  

Xcluder Door Sweeps and Seals, now available for residential and commercial applications, feature reinforced neoprene gaskets lined with Xcluder rodent-proof fill fabric.  Xcluder Pest Control Door Sweeps are ideal for restaurants, food-processing facilities, hotels, schools, grocery stores and residences, and feature a sturdy aluminum retainer, stainless steel sheet metal screws and slotted screw holes for easy adjustment.  The sweeps are easy to install and fit most common door sizes and types.  Xcluder Pest Control Door Seals and Dock Leveler Seals are designed to protect garage doors, overhead doors, roll-up doors and dock levelers, effectively sealing these common entry points and supporting integrated pest management best practices.  The seals are designed to fit standard T-style bottom retainers.

Xcluder Geo is a porous geotextile bound with non-corroding, coarse stainless steel fibers to create a permanent barrier against burrowing pests.  The material installs under landscaping and allows grass and small plants to grow through.  The Xcluder DIY Kit is now available to consumers nationwide and includes four pieces of Xcluder fill fabric, sheers, protective neoprene gloves and easy-to-follow installation instructions.     

“Xcluder's product line growth has expanded our target audience beyond pest control professionals to include food quality and safety managers, city planning officials, homeowners and property managers nationwide, and others,” said Paul Bonn, Business Manager, Xcluder.  “The new logo and package design better reflect today's Xcluder brand and our continued growth in the market.”

The modernized Xcluder brand logo will appear on Xcluder's complete range of pest barrier products beginning March 2014.
