Huber Engineered Woods Introduces New Tools
In advance of the world’s largest annual construction show—the International Builders’ Show (IBS), January 9-11, 2018—Huber Engineered Woods introduces two new tools to make jobsite application easier and more efficient.
As part of the AdvanTech® flooring suite of solutions, the company introduces a 28” long-barrel, non-stick, spray-foam applicator gun for AdvanTech subfloor adhesive application. The new applicator gun extends reach for adhesive application without having to step out onto joists or bend down for close application.
“Traditional cartridge adhesive can be slow and hard to squeeze in winter conditions,” said David Wescott, accessories product director for Huber Engineered Woods. “Foam-to-gel AdvanTech subfloor adhesive brings new levels of speed and ease to the jobsite with quick application, even on wet and frozen wood. With the longer applicator gun, builders can keep subflooring installation moving even easier, year-round.”
ZIP System® sheathing and tape line of products now includes a new ZIP System tape roller with a tape marker for rolling accuracy. The roller features a unique marking mechanism, leaving a Z-shaped indent in the tape where pressure has been applied. The marking mechanism provides a clear indication of where tape has been rolled and allows for a quick quality assurance check by general contractors, project leads, waterproofing consultants and installers.
The new ZIP System tape roller is light weight and includes a wide, split roller head. The handle is specially designed to allow easy rolling in hard-to-reach areas like inside corners or around windows and doors.
IBS attendees can try both new tools from Huber Engineered Woods at the company’s booth, #W2883.
