Atas Adds Roofinox Stainless Steel Roofing Products to Product Catalog

ATAS International Inc. has expanded its three-year partnership with Roofinox America with the addition of the company’s stainless steel roofing products to the 2016 ATAS complete product line catalog.  
 
The Roofinox product line consists of Roofinox Classic brush-rolled stainless steel, Roofinox Pearl bead-blasted stainless steel, Roofinox Plus ribbed stainless steel, Roofinox Chroma mirror-rolled stainless steel and Roofinox Tin-plated (Terne), the only tin-plated stainless steel roofing product specifically developed and manufactured for roll forming and fabricating. Designed to offer long-term sustainability and corrosion-resistance for wall-cladding, flashing, rainware, interior design and virtually all forms of roofing applications, each Roofinox product is also easy to seam, while offering superior aesthetics and reducing machine and tool wear.
 
“We are always looking to support our customers ranging from builders to appliance and toy manufacturers with the highest quality products available in the marketplace today,” says Gary Miller, ATAS’ OEM manager. “Roofinox supports this goal in two distinct areas. Their Tin-plated (Terne) is not only ideal for roll forming and fabricating, its popularity has grown with architects that enjoy the grey patina look these products achieve over time. We have found Roofinox stainless steel products to be more ductile and offer less spring back than similar products, in addition to providing excellent corrosion protection.”
 
“ATAS is a great partner,” says Dave Rowe, vice president at Roofinox America. “They know the market well and are striving to expand their customer base with products for architects and contractors. We are thrilled to be featured in the latest ATAS product line catalog and made available to their growing list of national clients.”
 
Originally developed to withstand the harsh climatic conditions found in Central Europe, the complete Roofinox stainless steel product line is ideal for applications ranging from rural, urban and light industrial areas to historic and commercial sites and extreme coastal environments. Available in coil or sheet, materials can be ordered by themselves so customers can do their own forming or products can be prefabricated by distributors like ATAS.  
 

Roofinox Displays Its Line of Stainless Steel Roofing Products to Contractors and Architects

Roofinox displays its line of stainless steel roofing products to contractors and architects attending the Moon in June Machinery Show in Lynchburg, Va. The annual exposition is specifically developed to showcase the latest advancements in roofing machinery and materials by N.B. Handy Company, HVAC equipment and supplies.

“We appreciate Roofinox’s participation in this year’s event,” says Paul Seufer, general manager of the N.B. Handy Machinery Group. “Our goal is to spotlight sheet metal fabrication machinery and materials available in the marketplace. This includes the interactive display of services in an environment where customers can experience processes and benefits first-hand. Roofinox’s stainless steel roofing products offer forming characteristics that run through our equipment.”

“It is a privilege to work alongside N.B. Handy,” says Dave Rowe, vice president at Roofinox America. “This event provides a wonderful opportunity for building professionals to interact with experts, ask questions and actually witness how our products work with their equipment under in-field conditions.”

Roofinox provides a range of tin-plated (Terne) products designed to offer sustainability and corrosion-resistance for wall-cladding, flashing, rainware, interior design and virtually all forms of roofing applications. Roofinox Tin-plated (Terne) is specifically developed and manufactured for roll forming and fabricating.

Developed to withstand climatic conditions found in Central Europe, the Roofinox Stainless Steel product line is ideal for applications ranging from rural, urban and light industrial areas to historic and commercial sites and coastal environments. With ongoing exposure to the elements, Roofinox Tin-plated (Terne’s) surface will develop an elegant matt grey patina finish over time.

A substitute for lead-coated copper, zinc/tin-zinc coated copper, Terne-coated materials, galvalume and lead, Roofinox Tin-plated (Terne) is available in coil or sheet. Materials can be ordered by themselves so customers can do their own forming or prefabricated by a Roofinox distributor.

Samco Machinery introduces the Hands-Free Multi-Product Roll Forming Line, a high-performance line engineered for the specific needs of customers producing multiple profiles.

Samco Machinery’s latest innovative rollforming line is designed to produce products for “Just-in-Time” production. This machine has the ability to perform at variable speeds up to 60 feet per minute, depending on the punching pattern and part lengths. Very much a “hands-free” machine, the entire process is automated from the moment coil leaves the uncoiler until finished product exits the cut-off.

Features include:

  • 10K double-ended uncoiler with hydraulic mandrel expansion.
  • Universal Bottom Driven Roll Former with side-by-side tooling for “Just-in-Time” production.
  • Auto Pre-Punch/Notch Press Selection System with guiding system and AMS controller as required by “Just-in-Time” production.
  • Closed Loop Length Control Systems to maintain sufficient coil stock in the line.
  • Stop-and-Go Cut-Off Hydraulic Press mounted on the roll former base includes three sets of cut-off dies with auto-die change system.
  • Sweep unit with adjustable sweep with roller straightener dedicated for specific profile(s).
  • Just 2 feet of prevailing scrap on leading and trailing ends of coil.

Brock Associates Partners with Roofinox to Sell Roofing and Rollforming Products

“When Follansbee closed its doors, removing its TCS II from availability a few years ago, it left a serious hole in the market for architectural stainless steel,” says Allan Brock, president of Brock Associates of Pittsburgh, Pa. “Architects still need TCS-II and many are still specifying it for their designs. So we decided to satisfy this market by bringing Roofinox into our product line.”

Brock Associates is now sourcing material for its commercial roofing and siding/ACM applications from Roofinox America, the U.S. arm of Roofinox International, Europe’s supplier of quality stainless steel specifically designed for roofing and rollforming.

Allan Brock says: “Over recent years, we have seen the market for metal in roofing, siding and paintable flashing, increasing, especially in the high-end applications, in our market area of Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, New Jersey and Virginia. When we saw an opportunity to re-introduce stainless into the market with Roofinox, we went for it, and we have not been disappointed.”

“We are extremely pleased about Brock’s decision to go with Roofinox,” notes Dave Rowe, vice president of Sales, Roofinox America. “Roofinox Tin Plated stainless offers a great replacement for the old TSC II, along with a rich architectural appearance.

He continues: “The good news, is it is 20 percent more malleable than any other stainless products on the market making it easier than ever to roll-form. The strength and malleability of our product coupled with our unique surface textures provides our clients with a desirable product.”

Roofinox America has been providing Roofinox Classic, Roofinox Plus .0157 and Roofinox tin-plated (Terne-coated) material to American fabricators, roofing contractors and metal roofing distributors for more than two years.
