FastenMaster Wins Prestigious Pro Tool Innovation Award

FastenMaster’s newly introduced MVP Multipurpose Wood Screw has been selected as a 2023 Pro Tool Innovation Award winner in the highly competitive ‘Fasteners-Adhesives, Construction’ category.

FastenMaster’s new­ly intro­duced MVP Mul­ti­pur­pose Wood Screw has been select­ed as a 2023 Pro Tool Inno­va­tion Award win­ner in the high­ly com­pet­i­tive Fas­ten­ers-Adhe­sives, Con­struc­tion’ category.

Designed for fram­ing, inte­ri­or remod­el­ing, cab­i­netry and more, MVP fas­ten­ers fea­ture FastenMaster’s exclu­sive dou­ble-lead SureStart™ point for a fast start, and a TORX® ttap® dri­ve sys­tem for sta­ble, wob­ble-free instal­la­tion. The fas­ten­er also fea­tures a durable Pro­jectLife™ Coat­ing that deliv­ers supe­ri­or cor­ro­sion pro­tec­tion for the life of the project and a SureSink™ Head that coun­ter­sinks into the wood with­out com­pro­mis­ing clamp­ing force. MVP fas­ten­ers are avail­able in six sizes from 1½- through 4‑inches in half-inch incre­ments, and come pack­aged in small packs of 100, project packs of 250 to 500 depend­ing on the length, and in bulk quan­ti­ties of 1,250 to 2,000 fas­ten­ers depend­ing on the length. 

In addi­tion to its MVP fas­ten­er, the company’s new EVO Deck Fram­ing Con­nec­tor, was also named as a final­ist in the com­pe­ti­tion. Made of rein­forced engi­neered poly­mer, EVO con­nec­tors are stronger than tra­di­tion­al steel con­nec­tors, won’t rust, and are tem­per­a­ture and UV sta­ble. In addi­tion, the design is adjustable and enables deck­ing pro­fes­sion­als to align either 2 x 8- or 2 x 10-inch pres­sure treat­ed lum­ber to the ledger in sec­onds, with­out need­ing to tem­porar­i­ly tack joists in place dur­ing instal­la­tion. The sys­tem is code-com­pli­ant and meets IRC require­ments for deck joist hangers. 

Win­ning PTIA prod­ucts are select­ed by an inde­pen­dent pan­el of judges, com­posed of con­trac­tors, con­struc­tion busi­ness own­ers, trades­peo­ple, and media pro­fes­sion­als, who annu­al­ly judge and select the world’s most inno­v­a­tive con­struc­tion and out­door pow­er equip­ment prod­ucts. For this 11th annu­al com­pe­ti­tion, 99 dif­fer­ent man­u­fac­tur­ers sub­mit­ted a wide assort­ment of over 465 prod­ucts in the cat­e­gories of pow­er tools, hand tools, tool acces­sories, and fas­ten­ers for a chance to take home an award. 

It’s a great hon­or for these new Fas­ten­Mas­ter prod­ucts to be rec­og­nized by this pres­ti­gious nation­al award com­pe­ti­tion,” said Web Shaf­fer, senior vice pres­i­dent and gen­er­al man­ag­er of Fas­ten­Mas­ter. We have a long track record of devel­op­ing inno­v­a­tive solu­tions engi­neered for PRO con­trac­tors, and we are very pleased that these two prod­ucts have earned recog­ni­tion in the Pro Tool Inno­va­tion Awards pro­gram.”
