58 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK SENCO BRANDS, INC. 4270 Ivy Pointe Blvd. Cincinnati, OH 45245 TEL 1-800-543-4596 EMAIL WEB NEW SUBFLOOR SCREWS & NAILS CUT INSTALLATION TIME & DO NOT REQUIRE PROPRIETARY TOOLS Flooring contractors are always looking for ways to complete tedious, time-consuming subfloor installs more quickly, with better quality and fewer homeowner callbacks. SENCO has recently introduced two innovative fastening solutions to help. New WhisperGrip Subfloor Nails SENCO’s WhisperGrip subfloor nails feature a patented ring design that was originally developed in collaboration with the manufactured housing industry to better grip subfloor and sheathing material, maximize holding power, reduce squeaks, and eliminate costly callbacks. The lower rings are designed to fully engage and grip the joist or studs. The upper rings ensure that nails remain countersunk even if the joist or stud is missed. WhisperGrip nails come with SENCOTE coating, which acts as a lubricant during the drive for maximum speed and efficiency, then becomes an adhesive once driven for superior hold. WhisperGrip nails are available in 2”, 2-3/8” and 2-1/2” lengths and can be used with any SENCO 15 degree coil framing nailer including the SCN49XP, SCN60XP and SCN65XP. They can also be used with competitive coil framing nailers. asymmetric double thread design that drives twice as fast as more traditional structural flooring screws while improving holding power. The 2/3 coarse thread allows the screw to pull the subfloor down tight, eliminating squeaks and costly callbacks. The 08F175YKX’s Rex drive design provides high torque transmission capability, engaging and disengaging quickly and easily, and improving drive performance and bit life. Bottom line, these screws can be driven as fast or faster than drywall screws, cutting installation time up to half. The screw’s robust steel construction and design also eliminates head breakage in hard subfloor material such as oriented strandboard or other engineered wood. These new subfloor screws are available in 1-3/4” and 2” lengths and are ideal for fastening subfloor to wood joists. Used in conjunction with SENCO’s DuraSpin® auto-feed screw fastening systems (we recommend the DS440AC 4,000 RPM model with an extension pole attachment), the new screws can reduce installation time and effort even more. The new screws are packaged in 1,000 count boxes as opposed to traditional tubs. New SENCO Subfloor Screw The new 08F175YKX subfloor screw features an BUSINESS FOCUS ARTICLE CONTINUED ON PAGE 156
