SFS is once again supporting Kalzip’s network of approved installers as a Silver sponsor of the 2018 Teamkal Conference and Awards, set to take place in October near Chester.

The roofing and cladding fastener manufacturer is a long-standing supporter of Teamkal, which is the network of approved contractors who are fully trained in the installation of Kalzip Aluminium Standing Seam. 

The collaboration has proven successful over the years, with SFS’ range of fastening solutions enabling installers to deliver highly effective, practical solutions for the creation of buildings which couples freedom of architectural expression with optimum stability. By working together, the companies are able to combine the benefits of security, durability, economy, flexibility and quality to offer the ultimate service.

Key to this is the SFS range of fasteners which are recommended for Kalzip systems. In particular, the SDK self-drilling fastener features a drive pin that breaks off at a present torque, and the SL3 “thick to thin” fastener is designed to clamp thick top hat sections to thin metal decks using a combination of a special sprung washer, deep threads and a free spin zone.

SFS provides a wide range of fastening systems for all kinds of roofing and cladding applications, which are available in high-quality powder coated colour finishes. The company provides industry-leading technical support to architects, OEMs and installers throughout the design and build programme to create high quality, sustainable building envelopes.

Vincent Matthews, Marketing Manager at SFS said: “We’re delighted to be supporting the Teamkal network again this year and help to ensure their annual conference and awards are a tremendous success. Our products are widely used by Teamkal contractors in Kalzip building envelope applications, so we look forward to having the opportunity to meet up with our customers – old and new – at this renowned industry event.”

The event will take place on Thursday 4th October 2018 at the Carden Park Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa, near Chester – find out more here.
