Rust Free Performance Roof Fasteners

HEX WASHER HEAD WITH WASHER, ZINC

APPLICATIONS
  • Panel to secondary framing
  • Panel to panel side laps
  • Accessory to roof
  • Steel roofing and sheeting to metal frame structure
PRODUCT FEATURES
  • Specialized point design to improve drilling performance with less effort.
  • Long-point design maximizes pullout performance and allows for extra drilling capacity.
  • EPDM rubber washer for increased washer life.
  • 300-series stainless steel cap for rust-free performance.
  • Eliminates rust and streaking.
  • Preferred fastener for all roofing applications.
INSTALLATION GUIDELINES
  • A standard screw gun with a depth sensitive nosepiece should be used to install Long-life Drillers. For optimal fastener performance, the screw gun should be a minimum of 6 amps and have an rpm range of 0-2500.
  • Adjust the screw gun nosepiece to properly seat the fastener.
  • New magnetic sockets must be correctly set before use. Remove chip build-up as needed.
  • The fastener is fully seated when the head is flush with the work surface.
  • Overdriving may result in torsional failure of the fastener or stripout of the substrate.
  • The fastener must penetrate beyond the metal structure a minimum of 3 pitches of thread.
