Valley hemmer from
Swenson Shear
The Valley Hemmer provides users the ability to easily hem concealed-fastener panels at any angle as a part of the Snap Table Product Line. The unique rolling system of the Valley Hemmer allows for the hemming of eaves and valleys in one quick motion with no further crimping required. The innovative tool eliminates scratching, denting and bulging of the panel often associated with the use of hand-held bending tools. The hemming process is sped up and simplified while the overall hem quality is dramatically improved from traditional hemming techniques. The Valley Hemmer is now standard at the end of the ST7000 and ST8000 Snap Table models and is available as a standalone unit.

Fire-resistant sheathing from
LP Building Products
LP FlameBlock sheathing carries a Class A Flame Spread Rating and is ICC-certified (ESR-1365) for common roof and wall designs in multifamily and commercial buildings. It is ideal for use in applications where building codes require a flame spread rating or burn-through resistance rating — or where builders desire superior fire resistance in addition to all the benefits they typically expect from LP OSB sheathing, such as structural strength and impact resistance. LP FlameBlock sheathing contains no hazardous chemicals, making it environmentally friendly as well. LP FlameBlock sheathing is significantly lighter and easier to work with than exterior gypsum sheathing, and unlike pressure-impregnated, chemically treated fire resistant treated plywood, the structural integrity of LP OSB sheathing is not compromised during the treatment process. What’s more, LP FlameBlock sheathing is designed to withstand exposure to weather during ordinary construction delays.

Impact wrench from
The SSW18 18V 1/2-inch impact wrench from the PowerMasterSeries of 18-V lithium-ion cordless power tools provides a maximum torque of 1,947 inch-pounds. The SSW18 features three electronic speed ranges from 0 rpm to 1,600 rpm, 0 rpm to 2,150 rpm and 0 rpm to 2,650 rpm. The lightweight tool’s pistol-grip design and readily accessible trigger button make reaching the tightest spaces easy and less tiresome. Using guided air flow ducting, the company’s proven air-cooled charging technology cools the battery pack to a level temperature during charging. This increases productivity by shortening the charging process by 30 percent and sustains battery life by keeping the individual cells cooler during the charging process.
