NuStep Flashing Launches New Step Flashing
NuStep Flashing announced the launch of an innovative new step flashing. The patented flashing has been specifically designed to provide a faster, easier, and safer way for crews to install step flashing.
NuStep Flashing is manufactured from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), making it 75 percent lighter than traditional metal flashing with a pliability that is easier and safer to work with. In addition to the material benefits, each piece of flashing has two color options that provide a matching flexibility not offered anywhere else on the market.
“It is well documented year-after-year that roofing is one of the most dangerous jobs,” NuStep Chief Operating Officer Noah Schum said. “Small product improvements like reducing total weight up-and-down the ladder or eliminating sharp edges go a long way in protecting crews and reducing dangerous situations.”
After testing early prototypes with contractors and crews, NuStep received a utility patent for its step flashing in December 2018. NuStep ramped up production in spring 2019 and introduced the improved product into the Denver market with plans to expand distribution nationally throughout the summer of 2019.
NuStep is manufactured in the U.S. and every production run goes through extensive testing using the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) process for impact, tensile, puncture resistance and UV exposure. NuStep has been recognized and certified by the International Code Counsel (ICC ESR-3731) and is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
