Aerosmith and James Hardie make a great team for your next siding project. Aerosmith Large head fasteners are designed to meet James Hardie specs. Our PT2000 plating surpasses 2,000 hours salt spray testing with NO Red Rust.
In a side-by-side comparison, Aerosmith® pins and screw fastening were completed on the same type of wall assembly. Pins, in this ‘one to one’ installation, not only meet/exceed screw fastening, pin fastening was completed 7 times faster!
"Wow…..the pin system is at least 7 times faster than screws and with less ‘overdrives’! Incredible!!"
