Beat back pain with OMG's ergonomic tools
Commercial roofing jobs can be a pain — literally! The repeated bending and driving essential to installing a mechanically attached system can lead to overexertion and back pain. In fact, the National Safety Council reports overexertion and bodily reaction was the second biggest work-related injury involving days away from work in 2020, with those workers losing an average of 14 days, most commonly for back pain.
Now, imagine if you didn’t need to bend to stage plates and drive screws around the roof? OMG Roofing Products has developed a line of ergonomic rooftop tools that allow you to work more efficiently while reducing discomfort, fatigue, and risk of injury. It's a win-win for your budget, your timeline, and — most importantly — the health of your crew. Best of all: They're all available at Roofers Mart.
The RhinoTrac EZ is Similar to AccuTrac EZ, but it's designed for installing RhinoBond plates as part of the RhinoBond system. Contractors can simultaneously drop a RhinoBond plate and drive fasteners up to 8-inches long, saving time and manpower.
The RhinoBond Induction Welding system is the fastest growing method of single-ply attachment in the commercial roofing industry. In the past decade, nearly three billion square feet of thermoplastic membrane has been installed with RhinoBond. This all-in-one system for TPO and PVC membrane uses the same fastener and plate to secure the membrane and insulation in place without penetrating the membrane. The result is a Factory Mutual-approved system that does not create any point of entry for water and provides superior wind uplift performance with 50% fewer fasteners and 30% fewer seams.
