It will be hard to miss National Nail’s STINGER® brand of tools, fasteners and underlayment at the 2023 IRE in Dallas, Texas, where everything is bigger! That includes STINGER’s giant inflatable Scorpion that will rise up out of their Booth #4501. Ongoing demos of STINGER roofing products will be held in the Demo House adjacent to the Scorpion.

“Since the STINGER brand launched in 2007, the scorpion has been a trusted and familiar part of our logo. This year, we decided to unleash our mascot in a whole new way. Positioned on top of the roof of our new demo house, our scorpion strikes an intimidating pose, ready to protect the structure below. It’s a fitting symbol for our brand that focuses on providing homes with the best protection from moisture- below the surface.” Said Jeff Helmholdt, STINGER Brand Marketing Manager

STINGER will also sponsor a Social Media Giveaway. Take your picture between the claws of the giant scorpion, follow @stingersystems on Instagram, use the hashtag #thebigsting in your post, story or reel, and help them name their new mascot. One grand prize winner of a Yeti Tundra 45 hard cooler will be selected after the show. The first 100 visitors at the STINGER booth will also receive a handy credit card bottle opener.

STINGER is your second line of defense beneath the roofing shingle, offering superior moisture defense systems of underlayments, fasteners, and the tools to lay them down. STINGER EXO Synthetic Underlayment is strong and UV resistant for up to 6 months, with proprietary non-skid additives that reduce slips and pre-printed fastening patterns that speed up installation. It recently received acceptance by the Texas Department of Insurance.

When combined with STINGER collated cap fasteners, the resulting moisture barrier is tested and approved for winds up to 180 mph. STINGER professional grade tools are better and faster than traditional applications- from our award-winning CN100B Cap Nailer and CS150B Cap Stapler to our Cap Hammers, all created with the contractor in mind. STINGER NailPac meets Florida Product Approval (FL35349) under the Florida (DBPR) and has FORTIFIED Roof approval. 

Whether securing underlayment or housewrap, STINGER has what you need to get the job done fast- and done right the first time. Because when it comes to protecting your customers’ homes, it’s all about what lies underneath. Visit booth #4501 and take your photo with the scorpion at the IRE Show or visit
