The ultimate disc changing system for angle grinders?
A new disc changing system allows users to switch angle grinder accessories with just one click, Swiss company sia Abrasives’ X-LOCK is a convenient, toolless system with no loose parts and no force required.
With X-LOCK, changing now takes just five seconds – position the disc in the X-LOCK interface, click it on and you’re done. If a disc has to be changed, it is simply unlocked and removed with a lever – seized-up nuts are now a thing of the past.
And, since a clamping nut is no longer required, users can grind conveniently at a flat angle so potential damage to surfaces caused by the clamping nut is a thing of the past.
X-LOCK also determines the mounting direction of the accessories and ensures that directional discs such as cutting or grinding discs are always correctly mounted.
The sia X-LOCK range for metalworking includes a wide range of cutting, grinding, fibre and flap discs, as well as fibre and SCM backing pads.

Exclusive product for roofs old and new
As well as recently gaining Global Green Tag certification when using Colorcote Coil and currently going through Environmental Choice Certification for Colorsteel products, Roofing Industries has just launched its new, exclusive True Oak Deep commercial and residential corrugated profile.
Arising from the respected True Oak range of roofing and cladding products, True Oak Deep with its 40.3mm Rib height and 152mm pitch, will be viewed as a replacement for the “fibre cement” and asbestos products of yesteryear as well as providing design inspiration for new builds.
An extremely difficult product to roll-form, requiring the very latest in advanced manufacturing technology to bring the product to reality, True Oak Deep is manufactured in any length and is supplied from a wide selection of unpainted substrates or pre-painted Colorcote, Colorsteel and pre-painted aluminium coatings. Translucent roof lighting is also available to match.
A forerunner to True Oak Deep, True Oak Corrugate has already been readily adopted by specifiers throughout the country thanks to the benefits of lower pitch, versatility, spanning, physical strength and finally aesthetics and it is expected True Oak Deep will be equally as popular.
