The steel based tiles are designed and manufactured for strength and offer many added benefits over traditional roof tiles:

1 Unique overlapping system and fixing technique provides not only a leak-proof roof but also a form of burglar proofing. Tiles are available in galvanised mild steel substrate or in Alu-Zinc coated mild steel for added long term corrosion resistance 2 It’s durable and weather resistant. The acrylic coating was developed to withstand high ultra-violet levels and the most adverse weather conditions. The small stone granules bonded to the tile surface result in a durable finish, which protects against extensive weathering including gale force winds, downpours and hailstorms 3 Maintenance – the roof tiles are low on maintenance 4 Versatility – Harvey Roof tiles are the tiles of choice for re-roofing, easily turning a house into a prize home in just a few days 5 Strong on cost saving – the excellent weight to strength ratio of Harvey Roof tiles means that the investment is in the tiles and not costly roof structures.

Marshal Tools recently hosted its annual trade day event over a three day period in Durban. MARSHAL TOOLS HAVE been in the hardware wholesale business for 37 years and continue to grow from strength to strength. Its family values and ability to change according to market demands has helped the company achieve beyond expectations despite current difficult market conditions. Its recently hosted annual trade show is one example of doing things differently. Marshal tools first hosted a trade day 10 years ago and since then the trade day has grown significantly. Over the years, the show has outgrown previous smaller venues. The event also grew into a three day affair. For the last three years the much anticipated trade event has been held at a local high school. Being within close proximity to the Marshal offices, this venue has proven to be ideal.

NEWS STORE VISIT

Out of the blocks

Powerbuild, a hardware trading opportunity, now available through Unitrade Management Services (UMS) is off to a good start. DIY & Industrial Trade News visited three of its stores to see how it is going.

Heidelberg Powerbuild Paint & Hardware store.

BACKED UP BY the might of voluntary trading association Unitrade Management Services (UMS), Powerbuild is off to a good start with several established hardware stores taking up its hardware offering. Nigel Powerbuild Paint and Hardware first opened its doors in 2009 as part of a different hardware retail group, but recently changed to Powerbuild. The business is owned by Henry Oberholster, Siva Pillay and Craig Cornish. They also own a second hardware store in Heidelberg, which they bought in May 2016. It is also operating as TJ Hardware and Building Supplies (Powerbuild). They were some of the first stores to switch to the Powerbuild brand.

SPOTLIGHT LASHER TOOLS

Putting Lasher Tools in the spotlight

DIY & Industrial Trade News shines the spotlight on Ian Kendal, managing director of Lasher Tools.

Where did you grow up?

Zimbabwe, Bulawayo. I moved to South Africa with my family in 1984, when I was 16.

Who inspires you and why? It sounds like a clichĂŠ, but it really is my dad, Alan Kendal. We literally arrived in South Africa with a caravan and the clothes we had with us, but he is so focused on looking forward and on finding the positive in any situation that he came top of his class for his CIS (Chartered Institute of Secretaries Southern Africa) qualification and later got his FCIS, all while working and raising a family. He has an impeccable work ethic, but the biggest lesson he taught me is to always remain humble.

What do you enjoy most about your job? My job is like a fluid, living, breathing thing. Every day is different. The opportunity of being a part of a longstanding brand comes with the challenges of moving with the technological changes of the times and adapting to a supply chain that, in recent years, has changed substantially.

TEK SCREWS TEK screws drill their own pilot holes to combine two pieces, saving a lot of time and effort.

Choosing the right one: Dual Thread Roofing TEK Screw • Drills through the IBR sheeting and at the point where it starts to drill through the metal structure below; the break in thread allows it to spin in the sheeting while it drills into the structure.

Type 17 Point 5.5mm Ø

12mm

Wood • Thin sheet metal to wood • No pilot hole required (cutting point)

Truss Head • Broad, flat head for grip • Flat head = less noticeable

Type 3 Point

Tek screw length

• Consider the total thickness of the materials – Object + substrate + space between. • Tek screw should be able to drill through the object and through the substrate and extend at least the drill bit, plus suffiecient thread (NB!).

NB!

• Example, if the total thickness of the materials is 48mm, don’t use the 50mm Tek screws as the threaded length will be insuffiecient. Rather buy the 65mm Tek screws as they will extend beyond the substrate.

for more information, visit

www.eureka.co.za


Drilling point length • It’s very IMPORTANT that the drilling point is long enough to completely drill through the material before the threads engage. • Example, if you need to drill through 4mm plate, the drilling point should be longer than 4mm. • If the drilling point is too short and the threads engage too early, they can cause the fastener to bind and break off.

Point is TOO SHORT!

• The drill flute allows the debris to exit the hole that is being drilled. • If the drill flute becomes embedded in the material, the drill chips will clog the flute and cause the drill point to overheat and fail.

flute

NOTE: A TEK SCREW MUST ALWAYS DRILL THROUGH BOTH PIECES OF MATERIAL, ALLOWING THE FULL DRILL POINT TO EXTEND BEYOND THE SECOND PIECE. IT CANNOT EMBED ITSELF LIKE A SCREW, IT MIGHT BREAK.

Point is long enough

Installation Tips 90°

• ATTENTION: Drill slower than 1 500rpm! • Apply only enough pressure for the screw to drill. The screw should do the drilling. • It is important to hold the power drill at 90° to the surface to prevent failure. Adjust the speed of your drill before starting

Hold your power drill at 90° to the surface you are drilling into

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 1

Should smoke appear during use? NO!! Absolutely not! • Drilling speed too high. • OR applying too much downward pressure.

2

Why is the point melting?

3

• Applying too much downward pressure. • OR drilling speed too high. • OR drill flute too short.

Why is the screw breaking? • Drilling tip is too short. Thread is engaging before the tip is finished drilling. • Or drilling point not long enough to drill through the thickness of the material. • Drill is on hammer action, set to normal operation.

Scan this code for a helpful instructional video!

Why is nothing happening? • At normal drilling speeds it is difficult to see if the screw is rotating in the correct direction. • Stop and make sure the power drill is not set to ‘Reverse’ mode.

Today’s myriad of passenger vehicles are designed for sprawling urban landscapes to effortlessly get goods or commuters from point A to B.

We have entered a new era of the re-imagination of commercial vehicles and Peugeot is at the forefront of this innovation. The trend is to provide consumer vehicles that are both luxurious and hardy enough to be categorised as business tools – offering the best of both worlds. So, with this in mind, let’s focus on

ON THE MOVE GWM From a retailer point of view, we took the car to Mica Kyalami and the owner, Brian xxxxx believes any retailer who requires a hardworking and durable work horse the Steed 5 range is one of the better options available. In addition, he did say that not only is the Facelift Steed 5 one of the best-looking single cabs on the market, but it’s extremely well priced. Therefore, other popular brands may need to relook at their current offers as the Facelift Steed 5 will make serious in roads into the single cab market. Finally, at the end of the week of testing the vehicle it was in a desperate need of a good cleaning and we were fortunate enough to be invited by Spanjaard Limited to do a ‘road test, clean test’ at their Wynberg offices.

Master Lock is recognized around the world as the authentic, enduring name in padlocks and security products. Since our founding in 1921, we have worked hard to earn and maintain the trust of our customers by delivering on our promise of strength and quality and by continually setting new standards for lock design, application and performance. As the largest global manufacturer and marketer of padlocks, we continue to build our founder’s passion for innovation, quality and compelling value into our expanding lines of security solutions.

Master Lock Chain Gang There is a saying that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. When it comes to security, there is no better explanation of why it is so important to look at a security solution in its entirety. There is no point in having the toughest padlocks, but then using them with a sub-standard chain or cable. The thieves will just leave the padlocks and attack the weak chain or cable in order to gain access.

different lengths and diameters, they are also coated in plastic to prevent scratching. Each end has a ready-made loop to facilitate a padlock. Braided cable is more resistant to cutting then normal wound cable so offers increased security. The Python infinitely adjustable cable adds to this category and is ideal for securing equipment and moveable items. Also available is a vast range of combination and keyed cables.

Master Lock has a range of chains and cables to suit every requirement.

For convenience, a range of galvanised chain and padlock sets are available. The round link chain is housed in a nylon sheath and the padlock rubber coated for protection. Various colour options available. These sets are ideal for bicycles and motorcycles and situations where less security is required.

Top of the range is the Master Lock hardened square link chain, available in pre-manufactured lengths and shackle diameters. These chains are twice as tough and resistant to bolt cutters and angle grinders than standard hardened chains. They are also housed in a plastic sheath for protection against scratching.
