Toolbox May 2015
The SNC63LDXP 15-degree, 23⁄8-inch to 2½-inch coil nailer is a highly specialized fastening system designed to only install continuous structural foam insulation panels. The driver blade on the tool extends about 1-inch beyond the safety element in order to drive the nail through the foam and directly into the OSB backer and ultimately, securely fastening into the framing members. A safety foot guide on the fastener ensures proper alignment and a large diameter base helps reduce damage to the foam surface when fasteners are driven. For more information, visit senco.com.

Stucco Wall Systems
BASF Wall Systems
Platinum continuous insulation systems are exterior wall claddings featuring platinum Neopor advanced insulation technology. Neopor is a patented rigid insulation board with graphite embedded into the polymer matrix. Graphite reflects infrared energy, thus decreasing the material’s thermal conductivity and increasing its R-value. It also exceeds many ASTM C578 Type II requirements including density, flexural and compressive strength. The wall systems utilize a specially selected, high density (1.45 pcf) Neopor board to optimize thermal performance and improve impact resistance. The boards are available in R-5, R-7.5 and R-10 thermal resistance for ease of design and to ensure energy code compliance. For additional information, visit wallsystems.basf.com.
Roundy Curved Plasterboard
The Roundy product is a curved drywall panel for walls and ceilings and can be curved down to a radius of 150 mm. Where there is an outside curve (convex), the adjoining wall on the other side can still be at a 90 degree angle (i.e., to accommodate a bath or shower).
The curves are manufactured to the architect’s design and radius so there is less waste.
