Aerosmith knows it's important for you to install your gypsum board quickly without breaking the paper.

Yellow board, green board, whatever Exterior Gypsum you use can all be installed using Aerosmith's VersaPin® fasteners and tools.
Working on scaffolds has its own challenges. As a crew cheif surveyed his job site, he noticed screws were dropping to the ground from above. These screws were not picked up, and the chief estimated the loss was 30%. It was the fastener system and that the crew didn't have enough pressure to install the screws while on the scaffold. The solution? The VersaPin® fastening system.
