It is nice to see that free speech is alive and well. It is also interesting to note that Lowe's free speech is not being considered with those who are protesting!

TimberTech brings stainless steel to TopLoc fasteners

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Wilmington, Ohio-based TimberTech expanded its fastening options by rolling out a stainless steel TopLoc fastener. 

Most coastal regions require stainless steel fasteners to reduce the likelihood of corrosion that leads to rot and failure, according to the company. Stainless steel is able to withstand more inclement weather because it is less brittle than carbon steel.

“TopLoc’s tri-lobular design reduces compression within the board and the undercut head with three annular rings helps eliminate undesired mushrooming, spinout and end-splitting,” said Toby Bostwick, senior product manager. “Now, we have a product that combines these great attributes with a fastener that will create a long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing decking system.”

Air King rolls out new model of snap-in exhaust fans

BY HBSDEALER Staff

West Chester, Pa.-based Air King added the do-it-yourself, snap-in BFQ80 exhaust fan to its line of ventilation fans. 

The BFQ80 is an 80 CFM, 2.0 sone exhaust fan offering an Energy Star-qualified solution for residential ventilation needs, the company said.

“What makes the BFQ Series unique is the simple, one-person installation system,” said Jeff Kenkelen, president, Air King. “Most ‘traditional’ fans utilize either a hanger bar or mounting tab system, while the BFQ is installed using a convenient mounting bracket.”

The BFQ Series can easily be installed by one person using a convenient mounting bracket that is screwed to the joist and then the high-impact molded plastic housing snaps into place. The mounting system eliminates the need for two people (above and below the ceiling). It also reduces both the time for installation and the frustration of struggling with the hanger bars or tabs while trying to hold the fan in place and attaching it to the joist.
