VFC Lightning Protection system components are the highest quality available today, and many are state-of-the-art, exclusive to VFC. With the help of our manufacturing partners, new and improved products and methods are constantly under development.
ZPen Fastening System
Today’s Lightning Protection Systems are attached to structures using one of two unappealing options. First, sheet metal screws and loops are used to fasten every 3 feet wherever the Lightning Protection System (LPS) is installed. That’s hundreds, often thousands of penetrations in watertight systems. Second, the no penetration option is to use an adhesive system using construction mastics. Current adhesive support systems for LPS are visually unappealing, famously unreliable for long term adhesion, and can’t be used on vertical surfaces.
ZPen® System uses state-of-the-art architectural adhesive tapes with patent pending fasteners to ensure consistent appearance and long-lasting adhesion. With VFC’s ZPen® Fastening System, the Building Owner and Architect get the best of both worlds. The system creates no support penetrations to any flashing or sheet metal surfaces without sheet metal screws and is mounted to the surfaces with an attractive patented support clip with no unappealing or unsightly construction mastic. It’s so effective that we confidently provide a 10 Year Adhesion Warranty.
