ATLANTA — Atlas Roofing Corp. has grown its production capability by adding new, state-of-the-art equipment to its manufacturing lines this spring. With these modern systems, Atlas will be strategically positioned to answer the growing demand for shingles with HP Technology, the latest advanced shingle design from Atlas. This added production capacity, strategically located in Hampton, Ga., Meridian, Miss., and Daingerfield, Texas, will allow Atlas to quickly deliver its HP lines of shingles to more customers.
These new laminating lines are proof that Atlas Roofing Corp. is making a long-term investment in HP Technology.
HP technology was developed by Atlas to meet the needs of its contractors and features five key elements that are hard to miss: a larger-size shingle; double sealant lines of FASTAC® adhesive; a true 1¼ inch “sweet spot” nailing area; a 6-inch exposure for a real architectural look; and the StormMaster Slate, which adds an additional 2½ inches for a full 8½ inches of exposure, creating a true look of slate.
The HP shingle is also warranted to withstand 130 mph winds and wind-driven rain with a standard four-nail application.
The increased production capacity of the new lines ensures that Atlas distributors will be more able to quickly fill contractors’ orders. By adding this state-of-the-art equipment to its plants, Atlas has the capability to deliver new and innovative product lines based on these and upcoming line improvements.
