High-Performance Screw Fasteners Designed for Stone Coated Steel Roofing Tile

Boral Roofing LLC launches its official line of high-performance Screw Fasteners for use with Stone Coated Steel Roofing Tile. The comprehensive line of screw options is designed for durability and ease of installation. Weather resistant and designed for use in any climate, the best-in-class fasteners have all been performance tested.

According to the manufacturer, All Boral Steel screws are covered with L3 Dura Protec, a corrosion-resistant coating, and panel screw heads are colored to blend with roofing panels and trim. All Boral Steel screws have a finely detailed 0.25-inch Hex Washer Head (HWH), as well as a combination of a sharp T-17 self-tapping point along with H-Low high and low threads to ensure they drive quickly through the multiple layers of steel panels and into the wood decking and battens for fast, easy installation. By using screws to secure the stone coated steel roof panels and accessories, repairs and retrofits with solar, skylights and other roof upgrades in the future are made easier, according to the company.

“This line of screws is the culmination of in-depth company research into various fastener materials and technologies and represents the best options available for use with Stone Coated Steel Roofing,” said Pete Croft, brand manager of steel roofing for Boral Roofing.

Boral Steel’s high-grade carbon screws are corrosion tested to 1,000 hours of Salt Spray (ASTM B117). Boral Steel also offers Stainless Steel Panel screws, which have been tested to 1,500 hours of Salt Spray. These come with black coating on the head and shaft to easily identify them.Every box of panel screws contains a nut driver to ensure easy installation. Each nut driver includes a pre-set magnet.

Boral Roofing Introduces Boral Steel Line

Boral Roofing LLC, announced the introduction of Boral Steel, its rebranded stone-coated steel product line emphasizing durability and performance. According to the company, the launch of Boral Steel adds another key roofing material category to Boral Roofing, a manufacturer of sustainable clay and concrete roof tile systems and retrofit metal roofing solutions as well. 

“The introduction of Boral Steel is significant as it expands Boral Roofing’s product line with a suite of stone-coated steel offerings that are lightweight and ideal for both retrofit and new construction,” said Pete Croft, brand manager – Steel with Boral Roofing. “Boral Roofing is now well-suited to serve the remodel marketplace in addition to the ground-up development sector.”

The launch of Boral Steel is one key culmination of the high-profile 2017 Headwaters acquisition during which Boral Roofing acquired steel roofing market leaders Gerard and Metro (among other roofing entities) and consolidated the companies’ highest-performing and most popular steel roofing system options. With the official launch of Boral Steel, Boral Roofing now offers stone-coated steel roofing systems in five unique profiles including: PINE-CREST Shake, a roofing product engineered to mimic the look of hand-split wood shake while offering the durability that only stone coated steel provides; BARREL-VAULT Tile, resembling the authentic look of Spanish Tile; GRANITE-RIDGE Shingle, a low-profile shingle panel; PACIFIC Tile, offering a Mediterranean tile aesthetic; and COTTAGE Shingle, a double-course high-profile shingle with raised and lower sections that create a classic cottage look.

“With these profile options, customers are able to complement numerous architectural styles while ensuring maximum curb appeal, durability and weather resiliency.” Croft said. “All of Boral Steel’s products are Class 4 rated for Hail Impact Resistance, offer a Class A Fire Rating (when using designated accompanying underlay materials), and are Hurricane Performance Rated with Miami Dade County HVHZ Approval – the most stringent hurricane resistance standard in the country.”

“In addition to energy efficiency, which these systems rate well in, resiliency and storm resistance are top-of-mind among roofing customers,” added Croft. “All of these stone coated steel profiles perform exceptionally well against hail, fire, wind and ice damming, and these attributes are key selling points for this product line.”

Boral Steel is now available to customers across the United States.
