AGT Manufacturing, a start-up company, is already recognized in Hudson for novel ideas in residential construction. The Trant Bar is the newest invention of the company. This device minimizes the number of workers needed and reduces problems that arise regarding safety while fixing vinyl siding in residences. This saves contractors a lot of money and time.
Scaffolds and planks are essential to reach the work spot and to access materials while fixing siding in buildings. In this scenario, siding can fall off and cause injury and material loss. The Trant Bar can be used to fasten materials, thus providing safety and reducing wastage of materials during the installation.
The device has the capacity to fasten the siding required for a whole side of a residence at a time. Its technology and design reduces the number of times workers have to ascend and descend ladders. It also reduces the time taken for ground labourers to load and send the siding up the scaffolding to the work spot. Through this novel idea, builders can save up to $200 a week, besides reducing insurance and also workers’ compensation costs.
The Trant Bar cuts the siding installation expenses of residences by about half when compared to other usual siding equipment. The device can be fixed by just one person in as little as 10 minutes, enabling quick start up of the job while also adding to the safety in the premises.
