In January 2016 we began rolling out our new line of stainless steel parts and connectors, and phasing out the powder coated steel parts we’ve been producing since 2002. And the really good news is that there is no cost increase!
The old parts were zinc plated and powder coated, which made them very durable, but let’s face it, you can’t get more bullet proof than stainless steel. We understand that cost is always a concern, so with some manufacturing tweaks, economies of scale and streamlined logistics, we are now able to provide this superior material as a standard for the connector fittings on our RoofScreen® brand equipment screens as well as our Silverback® brand solar racking systems.
The new stainless steel parts are mill finish without a paint coating, so delicate handling during installation is no longer a concern. Bang and scratch the parts all you want – you can’t hurt them. These rust proof parts just add to the already robust designs offered by RoofScreen, and are a testament to our continual efforts to provide the highest quality products at economical prices.
