Swenson Shear Inc., an international manufacturer of metal roof cutting tools, has announced its latest partnership with Colorado-based Flatiron Steel. This partnership provides Flatiron Steel customers direct access to Swenson Shear’s SnapTable PRO® when purchasing their metal roof panels. The SnapTable PRO, unique to the roofing industry, is a state-of-the-art metal panel preparation tool for roofing contractors. Compatible with any manufacturer’s metal panels or panel roll forming machine, the SnapTable PRO is designed to deliver consistent quality when notching, cutting, and hemming for both snap-lock and standing seam profiles at eaves, hips, and valleys. Eliminating the need to manually prepare metal panels for installation, contractors that use the SnapTable PRO realize a 35% labor cost savings, on average.
Some of the benefits of the SnapTable PRO include its versatility by accommodating metal panel width sizes from 12” to 24”, ability to produce factory-like cuts on the jobsite, significant reduction of waste, mobility, and lack of electricity needed to operate. The time saved by utilizing this tool equates to reducing the number of crew on the job, an ideal solution in a market experiencing a labor shortage, as well as the cost savings.
