TAMKO Building Products Introduces Two New Shingles

By   /  

TAMKO Building Products is introducing two new Heritage Proline shingle products, Titan XT and StormFighter IR, which feature a combination of product features and technologies designed to meet consumer preferences and demands.

Both shingle series have a proprietary poly-fabric reinforcement applied to the back—on the Titan XT shingle through the common bond and across the entire backside of the StormFighter IR shingle.

This provides an additional layer of wind and impact resistance, as well as an anchor for nails to embed in the expanded nailing zone, which is up to five times larger than the nailing zone on traditional Heritage shingles.

An additional asphalt weathering layer protects the shingle’s top, and a long series of Advanced Fusion sealants are designed to quickly fuse the shingles to the roof deck.

The extra reinforcement layer on the StormFighter IR shingle qualifies the product for a UL 2218 Class 4 Impact Rating.

Stephen McNally, vice president of sales and marketing at TAMKO Building Products stated, “StormFighter IR shingles were designed to provide the most sought-after benefits of a Class 4 shingle to both contractors and homeowners.”

TAMKO’s WindGuard warranty covers both products in winds up to 160 mph, with as few as four nails installed in the expanded nailing zone.

“With StormFighter IR, contractors can experience the fast and easy installation, while homeowners can feel confident in what this shingle will add to their homes through enhanced product features and the best impact-rated asphalt shingle wind warranty in the roofing industry,” McNally added.
