TUF-S fasteners are for the secure and easy attachment of HPL and fibre cement rainscreen panels

TUF-S - the next generation


The TUF-S is the next generation for the secret fix of high pressure laminate (HPL) and fibre cement rainscreen panels. The product is available in a range of lengths to suit panels as slim as 8mm and fits into a standard drill hole without the need for a complicated undercut.

Installation is with a riveting tool removing the carbon steel mandrel and leaving the A4 stainless steel fastener securely in place. The fastener is open preventing trapped moisture from potentially damaging the external face of the board over time and as it does not 'screw in', there is no danger of unwinding; ensuring a fixing solution to stand the test of time.
