The company has developed a new system for auto-feed fastening of washers to steel studs where screws are required. The system incorporates a nosepiece that attaches to an existing Tyrex auto-feed screwgun, allowing the user to set a washer into the nosepiece while subsequently driving a collated screw through the washer and into the substrate. The company has added both galvanized steel and plastic washers to their fastener line. The WM125A is a 1¼-inch galvanized steel washer that is used in plaster, stucco, one coat and hard coat. For applications such as commercial building wraps, EIFS installation, PB, PM and stucco, the company offers the WP175A 1¾-inch plastic washer. Both washers fit with a variety of TyRex screws, depending on the substrate to be fastened into.
