VISTA, Calif., Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Eco Building Products, Inc.,
(OTCBB: ECOB) announced today the Company's E Build & Truss division has just
come online with the manufacturing of a Class-A one hour fire rated, open web
floor truss assembly. With the Eco Red Shield compliance to Simpson Strong-Tie
recommendations for treated lumber protection for non-corrosive on Simpson
nail-plates, this new product represents a paradigm shift away from
light-gauge truss and I-Joist construction currently plagued with fire related

ECOB's new Truss manufacturing facility is now producing seven and a half
linear miles of Eco Red Shield coated fire rated floor and roof trusses for
the Hampton Inn currently under construction in San Diego. The difference
between ECOB and industry competitors, currently manufacturing floor truss
assemblies, is that ECOB is planning to distribute our fire rated trusses to
residential homes currently being constructed using combustible light-gauge
truss and I-Joist construction materials.

"I do believe that the product developed by ECOB is revolutionary and is going
to be a preventive measure in the future of building construction. I have
witnessed the Eco Red Shield products in action and I have to say it is pretty
amazing stuff. The ability of this product to prevent and delay ignition is
impressive. The Class "A" fire rated material produced by Eco Red Shield
actually helps extinguish the fire as it is trying to be ignited. I witnessed
this in a truss burn at our training facility. We tested one roof truss that
was treated with the Eco Red Shield product, and this truss would not ignite
or sustain combustion. While the other roof truss that was not treated
ignited quickly and burned in a small amount of time. I can only imagine good
outcomes when they use this product on open web floor trusses. Today's modern
materials decrease the time and increase the time temperature curve
firefighters have to get in to stop a fire from progressing. Eco Red Shield
coatings aid in decreasing the amount of fire involved, decrease the time
temperature curve and give firefighters more time. I think this product will
revolutionize fire safety in building products, and achieve ultimate goal of
ensuring the safety and protection of homeowners and first responders," stated
Battalion Chief of Training, Joe Ward – Oceanside Fire Department.

ECOB's professional relationships with the Fire Community on both Coasts, have
informed us that "minutes matter." With the fire hazards associated with
I-Joist and other light-gauge construction, first responders entering
residential structures exposed to sustained fire conditions are more
susceptible to structural collapse and subsequent first responder injury, or
even death. For more information on the fire related issues surrounding
I-Joist please view the following video published by WISN Channel 12 As the U.S. Fire Marshall's Office
and Fire Professionals across the country continue to seek reduced exposure to
fire related hazards associated with light-gauge roof truss and I-Joist
construction; the Fire Community from coast to coast has begun to embrace Eco
Red Shield and support the Company's move to raise the Industry standard in
the design and construction of safer homes.

"My vision is to bring the first cost-effective, Class-A one hour fire rated,
light-gauge roof and floor-truss assemblies to the residential construction
market from multiple ECOB coating facilities across the United States," says
Steve Conboy, President & CEO, Eco Building Products, Inc. "At ECOB, we are
always trying to find solutions to problems creating true defensive building
practices. We're seeing more and more houses now being built with solid
laminated veneer lumber (LVL) floors, because I-Joists do not meet the new
fire code requirements in crawl spaces and basements. The problem with LVL
floors is they are triple the price of an I-Joist floor leaving the builders
with the only option to build with solid sawn lumber, add fire sprinklers or
comply with section 501.3 of the International Residential Code. Additionally,
LVL's and I-Joist floor assemblies are cut and bored-through during
construction to allow access for mechanical, plumbing and electrical
components; all of which contribute to structural instability of the newly
constructed home," added Conboy.
