SureFast®
Tube washer and fastener system for flat roofing

Overview

SureFast® fastening system comprises a range of specialist tube washers, fasteners, pressure plates and termination bar for mechanically fastening insulation or membrane to flat roofs. It has been specifically designed to prevent the cold-bridging effect of mechanical fastenings on flat roofing applications.

Designed to be different

Eliminate thermal bridging

 

The tube washer practically eliminates thermal transmittance meaning insulation U-value calculations are greatly simplified as only minimal correction factors or penalties need to be considered. This not only saves time at the design stage but prevents any increase in material costs incurred by thicker insulation requirements.

Protects waterproofing membrane

 

Telescopic design means the tube and fastener are not locked together, preventing the fastener from being pushed through the membrane or a thin deck by foot traffic or materials placed on the roof surface.

Drillpoint size and thread ration

 

Engineered to ensure maximum thread grip and deliver the highest level of pull-out performance.engineered to ensure maximum thread grip and deliver the highest level of pull-out performance.

Secure against unwinding forces

 

Unique design ensures that the cyclic nature of wind uplift on flat roofing systems does not cause the fastener to unwind.

Durability

 

The tube is manufactured from high-quality polypropylene, allowing it to withstand harsh roof-top environments.

Superior tube design

 

A barbed tube option is available to achieve higher design values, which can mean fewer fasteners are required. The pointed tube tip aids penetration through the membrane and insulation for quick and easy installation.

ETA approved

 

ETA approval and CE marked products.

Comprehensive size range

 

Able to securely fasten insulation thicknesses of up to 500mm.
