Simplifii Design co-founder makes the news.

Simplifii Design is proud to announce that Sam Notaro, co-founder of Simplifii Design has been honored with an article in the Riverhead News Review. In the article, Sam speaks about the process of bringing a product from an idea on a piece of paper to a shelf at a building supply store. With the help of his father and co-founder Frank Notaro, they have turned their passion for construction and invention into a business. The father-son duo have brought two new products,  Simpliframe and Simpliseam to market over the last few years. Simplifii Design products can now be found in lumber yards spanning the Northeast. 

Simpliseam is catching on!

Simpliseam is an add-on for a spackling blade that gives it a curved edge, designed to reduce the need for sanding while spackling a seam in gypsum board. The idea was originally conceived by Frank’s friend and business partner Robert Kacperski, who wanted to create a curved spackling knife. From there the three men spent months honing what later became an add-on tool to have just the right curvature to reduce or eliminate sanding while spackling seams. The simple but effective idea caught on like wild-fire at the 2016 JLC LIVE Residential Construction Show, where they sold all 500 samples in just a few hours. All this excitement caught the attention of Larry Wegman formerly of Northeast Wholesale Fastener and Building Materials. Simplifii Design is happy to annouce that Northeast Wholesale Fastener and Building Materials  is now the exclusive supplier of Simpliframe and Simpliseam in the North East.

Speaking about Simplifii Design as a company,

“It started slow, but now it’s getting exciting,” Frank said.

“It’s a struggle, but it’s just perseverance … and luck,” Sam said.

With our new distribution partners at Northeast Wholesale Fastener and Building Materials Simpliframe and Simpliseam will now be available at a store near you soon!

Inventive Remodelers

Simpliframe was featured in an in depth editorial interview in this month’s edition of Professional Remodeler Magazine. In the interview, Frank Notaro and Sam Notaro (the Father and Son team behind Simpliframe) tell their story from inspiration to final product. Some of the highlights include why the Notaros chose a local manufacturer for their first product, and some of what it takes to become an inventor.

It’s a great read for anyone who has ever been interested in taking an idea for a product to market. It also gives you a bit more background on the inventors behind Simpliframe. Simpliframe is proud of the Notaros hard work and ingenuity.

It took over 100 revisions to turn Simpliframe from a solid block of plastic to a modular interlocking framing system

 

With over 100 design revisions, Simpliframe modular interlocking framing system has been developed over the last three years to stand up to the toughest environments and design requirements. They are cleaner and quicker than dimensional lumber and snap together in seconds. We are proud that Simpliframes are 100% American Made.

Check out the article here on page 36-37.

We’re happy to announce that Simpliframe is an Editor’s Pick in the May edition of Professional Remodeler Magazine. Simpliframe was chosen among other “cool new tools and ingenious products.”

Quick Way to Box Columns

By JLC Staff

The Simpliframe modular fastening system is sold in kits containing small plastic parts that snap together into rectangular frames, which in turn provide the skeleton for a mechanical chase or box-in for a Lally column. Much faster than messing around with lumber or strapping—and resulting in a smaller profile—these will yield big savings in labor. The basic kit with enough parts for several frames large enough to box a basement column sells for around $25. simpliframe.com

Simpliframe would like to thank everyone that visited us at our booth! If you bought some at the show, take some pictures and send them to us for a free gift!

A “sofit” is a common misspelling of the word soffit. A soffit is a bracket usually used for running pipes and cables through tight spaces or within walls. Most soffits are custom fabricated out of wood by carpenters in a time-consuming process. The word soffit (not sofit) comes from the french word sofitte and vulgar latin suffiticus or “to fasten underneath”. Simpliframe is something completely new (you wont find the original name in latin). It is revolutionizing the painstaking process of fabricating and installing soffits. On average it takes a professional carpenter 1 hour to make a wooden soffit. It would take the average DIYer 2-3 times longer than that.

That is why you don’t need a “Sofit”. Simpliframe replaces traditional soffits and installs in just seconds. Just clip the pieces together and install with only 2 easy screws. No backbreaking work required. The Simpliframe will simplify your next home improvement project. It’s also great for builders as it saves money on the labor usually consumed by making custom soffits. Installing Simpliframe could not be easier just watch this short video:

Once you use Simpliframe you’ll never want to make another “sofit”. Not only is it easy to use and install, but it is inexpensive and fits almost anywhere. Simpliframe is a modular system build to replace a traditional “sofit” and has parts to fit behind crown moldings, under desks, in walls and in many more places. At the same time Simpliframe is robust enough to hold even large HVAC ducts and scales out as needed to fit larger conduits. The Simpliframe means no more “Sofits” take a look at our shop to see all the custom shapes we offer. They are guaranteed to save you time, money and make your life easier when compared with fabricating and installing wooden “sofits”.

The Day of the “Sofit” has Passed

Our installation guides make it even easier. Plus you don’t need any tools besides a screwdriver to install it (unlike a custom “sofit” or soffit). If you interested in reselling Simpliframe in your hardware store or are a builder and would like to use it on your next project, call us at (888)511-7522 to get a free sample of Simpliframe. The product speaks for itself, it’s a real-time saver. If your not sure just watch this short install tutorial. You will never use a soffit or “sofit” again.

Simpliframe was featured in the products column of the August 2014 edition of The Journal of Light Construction magazine. It is an honor to be featured in such a prestigious magazine. We are shipping out our latest batch of products to excited customers and we would like to continue development of our future products. The article showcased the ease of using Simpliframe as a drop in replacement for wooden soffits. The benefit to builders is considerable. Skilled labor is pricey and your crews can be more cost effective using an easy to install solution like Simpliframe.

We are looking into releasing additional Simpliframe brackets to fit a wider variety of needs.

If you are looking for an easy to install soffit, you’re in luck. Easy soffit installation is made possible with simpliframes. Instead of traditional wood framing, you should use the simpliframe system. Save time and money using simpliframes. Check out installation videos at www.simpliframe.com.

Easy Soffit Installation With Simpliframe

Simpliframe is the alternative to wood framing for soffits, chases, or raceways. It will allow you to do it yourself, in less time and with less headaches.

Simpliframe only has three steps. First, you start by screwing the corner bracket into a wall stud or floor joist. Next you connect Part B and Part C to close off the frame. Repeat these steps every 16″ to 32″ (typically every stud or every other stud). The final step is to cover the simpliframe with gypsum board or trim.

Simpliframe is an alternative to wood framing. It will save you time because you don’t need to cut wood to size or hold it above your head and have a partner screw it to the wall and ceiling for you.  It gives you more usable space inside the soffit such as to fit cables or pipes. It reduces the mess in your house with no saw dust. Simpliframe allows DIY’ers and professionals alike to quickly and easily create a soffit in a house without the mess or time of traditional wood framing.

Using the optional Part E or “pipe bracket”, you can install the supply water for your new sink or bathroom. It is designed to snap onto 5/8″ and 3/4″ PEX tubing, 3/4″ copper pipe, or 1/2″ PVC electrical conduit. Perhaps you need to run electrical cables to a new fixture or room and you don’t want to open up a wall to start drilling through studs, create an easy soffit installation using simpliframes in minutes as compared to hours with wood framing.
