Construction Marketplace Tuesday, January 21, 2020 8 Boral Roofing Showcasing Innovative Options Boral Roofing brings its beautiful, high- performance roofing solutions back to the Las Vegas Convention Center as the residential building industry's iconic annual event, International Builders' Show, takes over Las Vegas. A national leader in durable and energy-efficient new and retrofit roofing systems, Boral Roofing is showcasing all four core segments of its roof solutions product line – clay, concrete, stone-coat- ed steel and composite – onsite on the show floor. Visitors to the Boral booth will learn about current color trends as well as the influence of architectural movements and the roofing options accompanying them. Boral is heavily promoting its all- new CEU course, New Clay Roofing Trends: Emerging Directions & Future Applications. Designed for architects, the course explores the marketplace for clay roof tile, emerging utilizations of clay roofing in the new era of contemporary architectural influence, as well as cre- ative applications in the forward contem- porary design segment. The newly launched Vista Collection, a concrete tile roof collection offered within the state of Texas, is also on dis- play. The result of research conducted on architectural, lifestyle and color trends in the region, the newly intro- duced hues are featured in the region's most popular Boral roof- ing tile profiles: Saxony ® Country Slate and Shake. Booth attendees can also delve into innovative and weather resistant solu- tions. Boral is displaying its new tile design for concrete Saxony Slate applied with foam, which is notable for its ability to help prevent damage caused by severe wind conditions. Boral is also showcasing the Class A fire rating of its popular concrete tile. Boral's lightweight Stone- Coated Steel solutions on dis- play are ideal in both new home construction and roofing retrofits. Boral Steel is a roof- ing option which helps protect from hail impacts. New Cool Roof Rating Council colors in both steel and concrete are also in-booth. Composite roofing options are also available for vis- itors to view, touch and learn about.

SubLoc PRO SCRAIL, the Squeakless Subflooring Solution SubLoc ® PRO SCRAIL ® fasteners developed by the BECK Group are proven to help prevent subfloor squeaks by stopping micro-movement of the underlying wood flooring materials. SubLoc PRO SCRAIL have superior squeak free performance when installed according to guidelines with and without glue. The BECK Group recently conduct- ed testing to ensure the "squeak free" claim through an impartial third party following new guidelines surrounding sound ratings. The results indicated that sound levels are less than 3dBA, which is proven to be inaudible by most human hearing. Available in a variety of collation types, SubLoc PRO SCRAIL are versa- tile and compatible with several BECK America tools, such as F60 CN15W- PS90 SCR, F58AC RHN20-90B SCR and F58AC CHN33-90B SCR. Their holding power is only improved through BECK's diamond coat technology, which utilizes a polymeric bonding agent, con- tains various expansion elements, increases holding power by more than 20 percent and reduces drive energy by more than 10 percent on average. They truly combine the best of both worlds by offering the high-speed instal- lation that a nail would provide, and the dynamic holding power and adjustability of a screw. However, unlike both nails and screws, SubLoc PRO have shank and head geometry that provide a clamping force to help pull the material tight to joists and trusses. With head pull through values more than 10 per- cent higher, and withdrawal values that are more than 40 percent higher than ring shank nails, SubLoc PRO SCRAIL are the premier fasteners for building professionals. BECK America recently announced that IAPMO's Uniform Evaluation Service has issued Evaluation Report 344 (ER-344) to parent company, The BECK Fastener Group ® , for the innova- tive construction fastener, SubLoc PRO SCRAIL, as a substitute for 8D and now 10D fasteners in seismic areas. Typical building codes specify only the most basic fasteners. If a builder wants to use more advanced methods and materials, they must show proof that the alternative product performs the same, or better, than the one specified in the code. The evaluation report from IAPMO's Uniform Evaluation Service is the ultimate in independent assurance that SubLoc PRO SCRAIL is in full com- pliance with applicable code criteria. The organization has a reputation as being the foremost source of uniform codes and standards used by building officials across the nation. BECK America is the Master Distributor for products manufactured by The BECK Group, a leader in pneumatic tool and fastener development. For over 115 years, the BECK Group has been a company focused on creating innovative, high quality products that generate time savings for the professionals who use their products.
