Grayson opens new Scottish service centre


To service its growing Scottish client base, Grayson (GB) Ltd has opened a new Scottish service centre.


T


his unprecedented step will ensure Grayson (GB) Ltd can offer all its Scottish clients the unparalleled levels of customer service the company is renowned for.


In recent months Grayson has seen the demand for


its products and services grow significantly, with the company wining several major contracts in the region. These gains have prompted a review of how the business will best service its construction base. “Servicing the construction sector often requires


‘boots on the ground’ to react to changing demands. With the new service centre positioned just off the M8 near Glasgow, we can now easily access the motorway network to reach all regions more rapidly.” Grayson highlights that it is working with


regeneration agencies and is committed to investing profits made in the region back into the regional economy, creating jobs and supporting local projects to regenerate the wider area.


EuroTec’s new screw generation


Hagen based EuroTec have announced two innovative additions to its extensive range of fixing technologies.


P


anelTwistec AG blue+ features a new Chrome VI free blue+ coating, which offers much higher corrosion resistance than traditional galvanising.


Surfaces treated with blue+, says EuroTec, are very resistance to mechanical stress. The new ‘AG’ tip draws the screw into the material thanks to its special geometry, reducing the screwing torque significantly. This means much higher screw in speed, explains EuroTec, and less splitting. The new range is available in both countersunk and flanged head versions. PanelTwistec AG blue+ may be used for fastening compression-proof rafter insulation. Also new to the EuroTec programme is the roofing


screw TopDuo blue+, which shares many of the features of PanelTwistec AG blue+. Its additional thread under the head, however, allows it be used to secure over rafter insulation with non-pressure resistant insulating material.


68 Fastener + Fixing Magazine • Issue 71 September 2011 all weather GaLa-screw is completely made of high grade rustproof


stainless steel giving the fastener long durability and weather resistance. The slim screw tip with wood cutting thread and integrated notched slot allows for precise positionning and rapid drive-in with


reduced cleavage and cracking. The possibility of screwing-in without predrilling results in time and cost saving operations. The counter thread beneath the head creates a permanent vice effect for extremely high holding forces. The proven BiROX®


drive ensures optimum torque transfer when


driving in. The stainless steel fastener combines the advantages of a countersunk head screw


with those of a surface covering head. The small panhead gathers protruding chips from the upper drill area burrying these evenly. Thus, the all weather GaLa construction screw is almost invisibly flush - the optimum solution for esthetically demanding qualitiy screw fixings with value conservation and without rust stains oder discolourings like chemical reactions of tannic acids. The BiERBACH®


all weather GaLA-screw is available in dimensions of diameter iERBACH® explains that the development of the new all-weather GaLa-


construction screw was rigorously guided by the practical requirements of professionals and DIYers for garden and landscape building (GaLa) as well for agriculture and forestry demands. Applications start with cladding boards on
