Duo-Fast DCR175-CN Cap Nailer
Duo-Fast has a nice looking new cap nailer that looks to fit the bill for your under-layment needs on your next roofing project. According to Duo-Fast, the gun takes any standard coil roofing nail and adds a cap to it and -boom- your felt paper is installed. There is also a toggle that shuts off the cap feed, so it only shoots bare nails. This means that quick roofing repairs can be had with this tool.
The nailer weighs a little over 8 lbs and can move between bump or sequential fire (this one is all about the bump). Sells for $450.
Press release, with lots more in the way of details, is after the jump.
Duo-Fast® is introducing an innovative Cap Nailer System, Model DF175-CN, designed to make installing synthetic roofing underlayment and organic roofing felt simpler and faster than other methods on the market today, adding to the roofing contractor's profitability.
The pneumatic cap nailer features a proprietary in-line design providing superior tool balance and a consistent drive of nails and caps with fewer jams. It features bump fire operation and a cap feed shut off button for easy transition to nail-only fastening, if the roofing contractor wants to use it as a roofing nailer for shingles. It also has a tool-less adjustable depth of drive and a quick-clear nose.
Unlike the competition, the Duo-Fast® Cap Nailer System uses standard 120-count roofing coil nails (from 7/8" to 1-3/4") and the unique DuoCaps™ collated plastic caps with 240 caps per spool. The DuoCaps™ provide a consistent tight seal preventing moisture from penetrating the deck surface. Plus, the DuoCaps™ superior holding power eliminates slack in the underlayment, translating into more secure footing for roofing contractors.
"With the growing use of synthetic roofing underlayment, we saw a need in the industry for an easier way to install it," said Jacek Romanski, Marketing Manager for Duo-Fast. "You cannot use a stapler as that will void some manufacturer's warranties, the only alternative was hand hammering caps, which is time consuming and doesn't always give the roofing contractor a consistent seal or hold, often causing leaks and a lack of secure footing on the roof. The Duo-Fast Cap Nailer System is the solution to both of these problems."
The DuoCaps™ spool is easy to load and sold in quantities of 240 caps per spool and 2400 caps per carton.
The Duo-Fast® Cap Nailer System, Model DF175-CN, has a suggested retail price of $449 and comes with a one year warranty. It is available at roofing and siding wholesalers such as ABC Supply (www.abccatalog.com) and Allied Building Products (www.alliedbuilding.com), and participating independent wholesalers.

Duo-Fast's focus is on providing the exterior contractor with construction solutions through innovative fastening systems. The company sells these systems through roofing and siding wholesalers found across the country.
