Canada’s Strongest Man Hugo Girard takes on the IKO Roofing Dynasty Demo

High winds are a shingle’s natural enemy, causing wind uplift and blow off and leaving behind problems. IKO’s Performance Shingles with ArmourZone provide tremendous fastening strength and nail pull-through resistance. Recently in Quebec, multiple time Canada and World’s Strongest man Hugo Girard stopped by the IKO booth to test the strength of a competitor’s shingle and the IKO Dynasty shingle with ArmourZone.

What’s an “ArmourZone?” It’s a 1 1/4” wide nailing surface for correct nail placement reinforced by a tear-resistant band that provides even more fastening strength over a wider surface area of the shingle. Nails applied in this area are optimally positioned to help resist nail pull-through and shingle blow-off, even in high winds.

A larger nailing zone with guidelines printed on the top helps ensure roofing crews place their nails accurately within this zone, for quick and easy installation as well as super tight fastening power. Visit IKO.com/na today for more information

Mile High Skyscrapers

The CN Tower, standing head and shoulders about all of the surrounding highrise condos and office towers, helps Toronto’s skyline stand out as one of the most easily recognizable in the country, if not the world. While it lost its (somewhat suspect) status the “world’s tallest freestanding structure” a few years ago, it’s still impressive to look at – or look down upon the city from its 346-metre high observation platform. But can you image the view from the top of a mile-high (1,600 metre) building? This short TedTalk video looks at what limited building height in the past, and why one day the sky may really be the limit.
