DEWALT has released a Coil Roofing Nailer, Model No. DW45RN, which weighs 5.2 pounds and is less than 10 inches in height to aid in hard-to-reach nailing under dormers and overhangs. Parallel valve technology offers dampened recoil for a smooth feel and rapid cycle speeds. The canister design features a window to easily identify when to reload. The dual sequence loading system can hold nails in place while closing canister doors, and the integrated latch and hinge tray is easily adjusted for different nail lengths. With low maintenance intervals and service cycles, it is optimal for installing standard asphalt shingles.

OMG Roofing Products has introduced the PaceCart 3, a robust application system for applying OlyBond500 Adhesives packaged with patented Bag-in-Box technology. The PaceCart 3 includes an ergonomically designed, easy-to-use dispensing manifold for applying two-part low-rise adhesives. The manifold does not require greasing, so it simplifies start-up and shut-down procedures. PaceCart 3 also features two pumps designed for use with high-viscosity liquids. A color-coded adhesive tray helps prevent cross contamination of Part 1 and Part 2 adhesive components, and an easy-to-read voltage meter helps identify power input. PaceCart 3 has been outfitted with a shelf designed to hold a portable generator for improved mobility on large projects (generator not included).

All-Terrain Cranes Feature Range of Boom Lengths and Lifting Capacities

The ALL Family of Companies has strengthened its all-terrain crane fleet with the addition of five Liebherr ATs.

The ALL Family of Companies has strengthened its all-terrain crane fleet with the addition of five Liebherr ATs, all featuring an innovative crane support system. The Liebherr ATs, with a wide range of boom lengths and lifting capacities, will be diverted to locations where demand is heaviest, but will generally serve customers in Cleveland, the Carolinas, branches serving the northern part of the U.S., and ALL locations in Canada.

The Liebherr ATs, scheduled for delivery in spring and summer of 2016, include:

  • Two 70-USt LTM 1060-3.1: one will be shared among the Central Rent-A-Crane (Indiana) branches, Central Contractors Service branches (Illinois), and ALL Canada Crane locations, and the second will go into the general company fleet.
  • One 65-USt LTM 1055-3.2, going to ALL Carolina Crane.
  • One 240-USt LTM 1200-5.1, going to ALL Carolina Crane.
  • One 265-USt LTM 1220-5.2, going to the main yard in Cleveland.

These ATs are a part of a line of Liebherrs that include the VarioBase variable supporting base system. VarioBase allows the operator to customize the crane’s outrigger extensions to best take advantage of the available working space, which in turn helps enhance lifting capacity and flexibility on the job site while creating greater efficiency. In tight spaces or on narrow sites, it can be challenging to extend all the outriggers as far as necessary for proper and safe lifting. With VarioBase, each support can be extended to whatever custom length is needed to fit the site. Then the load moment limiter within the crane’s LICCON control system ensures that the unit can operate and hoist loads safely. According to Liebherr, VarioBase calculates the precise lifting capacity for any support base and then monitors the crane’s stability, which helps increase the safe working range, as well as the lifting capacity. The work planner in the LICCON system also allows jobs to be planned and simulated in advance if desired.

TuffWrap Installations Inc. is now exclusively installing SmartSeam for interior protection during reroofing projects. SmartSeam is a suspended cover solution that provides dust and debris containment without the risk of impeding the fire sprinkler system. The product features a heat-reactive seam: Heat from a fire melts the seam, allowing the suspended cover panels to open, which clears the way for sprinklers to function as designed. SmartSeam is antimicrobial, antistatic and flame-retardant, as well as classified under UL 723s for installation below fire sprinklers.
