Paslode Receives Two MVP Awards from Building Products Magazine

That’s right, Paslode’s Cordless Roofing Nailer System and Engineered Lumber Nails were among 30 winners of this year’s Most Valuable Product Awards from Building Products magazine, which was announced on July 25.

These innovative Paslode products had to go before a judging panel made up of tough-to-please professional contractors who were looking for entries that are most valuable to the contractor by reducing installation time, callbacks and labor costs, solving a problem or boosting profits.

Certainly our Cordless Roofing Nailer System meets the criteria: With the convenience of cordless there are no hoses or compressor to set up or pack up, it saves time and labor costs and eliminates jobsite clutter. And many contractors have told us that even for small roof repairs, what was a three-man job is now a one man job, which is sure to save you money and boost profits!

Our new, Made-in-the-USA Engineered Lumber Nail solves a big problem we see on jobsites every day. That problem is the inability to drive nails flush into the newest, hardest engineer lumbers, such as LVL, LSL and PSL. Contractors spend a lot of time pulling bent nails or using a hammer to drive the nails flush. Many increase the pressure on their compressors, which increases fuel costs and the wear and tear on tools and equipment.

The Engineered Lumber Nail was specifically designed to solve this problem by driving flush into the hardest woods first time, every time. In so doing, there is no need to hammer nails down, pull out bent nails or up the pressure on your compressor – sure ways to save labor, nail and maintenance costs. And a sure way to boost profits.
