Patented technology for wind resistance
Owens Corning-patented SureNail® Technology is the first and only reinforced nailing zone on the face of the shingle. Embedded into every Duration® Series shingle, the tough, engineered woven fabric strip creates a highly durable fastener zone with outstanding gripping power. SureNail delivers 130-mph wind limited warranty performance with fewer nails, two times the common bond area of standard shingles and an easy-to-see target area for "no-guess" nailing.

COLOR Snap™ by AceClamp®
AceClamp has made installing snow-retention systems on standing-seam metal roofs easier and quicker than ever. COLOR Snap simply snaps into retaining clips that have been pre-installed on AceClamp's unique clamps. The setup for the snow-retention system begins with installation of AceClamp's fully assembled, nonpenetrating fasteners on the standing-seam metal roof ribs. The extruded COLOR Snap bar is then set below the fasteners and slid up until it snaps into place. The bolts on the clips that hold the bar in place are tightened to complete the installation. Finally, a color-matching, 2-inch-wide metal strip is inserted into the bar's front-facing groove, blending the entire rail system into the color scheme of the roof. Unique to this system are the ice clips that also accept a 2-inch-wide color strip that snaps into the rail with no screws or hardware needed. For more information, visit www.aceclamp.com or call (860) 351-0686.
