Rodenhouse Fasteners to attach Energy Shield Pro Insulation from Atlas

SCRIPT: "Hi I'm Jason Wigboldy, General Manager of Rodenhouse Inc. And Today I want to talk to you about fastening systems to attach Energy Shield Continuous Insulation from Atlas. To attach Energy Shield Insulation to steel studs we have various fastening options to consider. Our 2" dia. Thermal-Grip® ci prong washer can be used with Grip-Deck® ceramic coated self-drilling screws to easily attach into all gauges of steel. The dual prong feature on the bottom of the washer enables pre-spotting on the surface of the insulation for easy "on-the-wall" screw assembly. In this video you see our Grip-Lok® Autofeed Fastening System being utilized to rapidly attach our Grip-Deck® self-drilling screws into steel studs. For Brick Veneer or Stone veneer cavity wall applications you can utilize the Pos-i-Tie® veneer anchoring system with the 2" diameter Thermal-Grip® brick tie washer to prevent insulation blow-off and also to prevent air and moisture penetration of the wall. For adhered masonry such as stucco or stone veneer we provide our Grip-Plate® lath and plaster washers to attach lath outboard of the Energy Shield Insulation. The Grip-Plate® lath and plaster washers are 1 1/4" diameter and help spread the load to be able to support heavier cladding outboard of the insulation. For attaching Energy Shield Insulation to a concrete block or masonry substrate, utilize our Plasti-Grip® PMF Anchor. PMF stands for Plastic Masonry Fastener. These are easy to use by pre-drilling through the insulation and into the block or concrete substrate, placing the concrete anchor into the hole, and tapping it flush with a hammer. No adhesives, pins, or screws required. For Interior applications, the white foil-facer can be left exposed for a clean finish. Thank you for watching I hope you enjoyed."
