This system cuts the installation time and costs involved with specifying shingles or shakes as a roofing product. Independently conducted time trials show that on a large roof, the time saved by using JB ShingleFix would be around 50 percent.
JB ShingleFix allows a Paslode staple gun to be used for fixing shingles, combined with a unique, specially developed staple for maximum security and efficiency.
Christian Brash, chairman, says: “We’re thrilled to have developed this cost effective new fixing method, as it opens up this only truly renewable and sustainable roofing material to a much wider market than the traditional fixing methods allows. As a result the products are now an entirely viable choice for larger scale construction projects.”
Comments John Swindells from W. Swindells & Son (Roofing): “A significant proportion of the cost of a shingle roof lies within the labour intensive fixing method. Being able to complete the job in half the time, is a huge leap forward and promises major improvements in efficiency for contractors. We used JB ShingleFix on our project at BAE systems Samlesbury Aerodrome; the 2500m² building was designed in an elongated curve, which created several technical challenges. We found JB ShingleFix to be simple and efficient to use and it made such a large project possible.”
