System Combines Flashing and Counterflashing

FlashCo's FlashCap System

FlashCo’s FlashCap System

FlashCap’s innovative design and easy one-minute installation provides contractors with a fast, high-quality option for flashings. The FlashCap System from FlashCo combines the flashing and counterflashing, completely sealing the penetration without compromising the integrity of the protrusion. With FlashCap, venting capacity is maximized while the pipe and flashing are allowed to naturally expand and contract.

The purpose of the prefabricated part is to save the contractor field fabrication and installation time and provide a quality part fabricated in a controlled factory environment. The FlashCap system eliminates the need for a hose clamp and caulking. Compared to the universal boots in the market, FlashCap does not need to be cut down to fit the penetration. The FlashCap system is made to size and is customizable for a snug and secure fit. When utilizing FlashCap the seal is complete and simply needs to be heat welded to be secure. The FlashCap is available in TPO, PVC and lead.

The mission of FlashCo is to save the roofing contractor time and money by providing quality products that are easy to install.

Part of the CertainTeed Integrity Roof System, the new product line includes CertainTeed Ridge Vent, CertainTeed Rolled Ridge Vent and CertainTeed Intake Vent.

CertainTeed Ridge Vent is available in 7, 9 and 12 inches with filtered and unfiltered options. Each ridge vent is made of high quality co-polymer to remain sturdy, nailable and flexible. Reinforced ribs provide greater stability and rigidity, imprinted slot guides ensure proper slot width, and nail holes and nail lines enable easy, mistake-free installation. The product line also includes a Class A fire-rated vent.

CertainTeed Rolled Ridge Vent, also available in filtered and unfiltered, is designed for use in roof pitches from 3/12 to 12/12. The product features a unique, virtually invisible profile that installs fast.

CertainTeed Intake Vent is easily installed on a shingled roof with or without overhangs, and can be used to supplement existing soffit or undereave vents. Internal baffles, drainage system and weather filter provide three levels of weather protection. The intake vent allows air to flow into the attic and helps prevent heat build-up and ice dams.

The new ventilation products feature proven, effective technology for shingle roofs in all climates and come with a lifetime limited warranty and five-year SureStart Protection.

The products are designed with an external baffle to deflect wind and weather over the vent, creating low pressure above the vent to pull air out of the attic. Each vent comes in a black finish to blend with a variety of shingle colors and create a clean, uncluttered roofline. All provide excellent weather protection and prevent premature deterioration of roofing materials by continuously moving air year-round to improve interior comfort.

Safe Fleet Brand announces availability of more than 30 different ladder rack models to fit the seven new RAM ProMaster configurations

Prime Design, a Safe Fleet Brand, announces availability of more than 30 different ladder rack models to fit the seven new RAM ProMaster configurations.

Prime Design ladder racks optimize ergonomics through leverage, positioning and smooth, hydraulic assistance. This combination eliminates operators from having to climb on a tire or bumper—actions that can lead to an accident and recordable injuries.

Prime Design’s seven full-time territory managers work with customers to determine the best ladder rack model to meet their unique job requirements.
