LARKSVILLE, Pa. - The Canadian Patents and Trademarks Office has issued utility patent number 2,189,986 to THOR Systems Inc. president Ronald C. Hungarter for his innovative roofing layout tapes.

“Virtually any construction materials and/or applications requiring a horizontal line and/or a vertical grid layout can be addressed by variations of these tapes, now patented in both the U.S. and Canada,” explained Hungarter.
He went on to cite roofer testimonials claiming an 18 percent to 36 percent increase in on-site productivity from using the products. The company produces the tapes utilizing state-of-the-art digital printing technology. They are available in CertainTeed Corp.’s Business Resources Catalog and at other building suppliers.
