C.R. Laurence Introduces New Super Tip Drill Bits
for Stone and Porcelain Tile

New Heavy-Duty Bits Expedite Frameless Shower Door Installation With the Ability to Effortlessly Drill Into the Hardest Surfaces Including Porcelain Tile, Marble, and Granite

LOS ANGELES, CA - JULY 29, 2015 - When it comes to frameless shower door installations, it can be difficult and time consuming for glaziers to drill through harder surfaces such as porcelain tile and granite. As a solution, C.R. Laurence is proud to introduce its new line of Super Tip Drill Bits.

Geared towards increasing efficiency and precision during shower enclosure installations, CRL's Super Tip Drill Bits are especially suited for drilling through the toughest surfaces. Principal among these are granite and porcelain tile. Due to their low permeability and low elasticity, these materials are commonly used in commercial and high-end residential shower construction; however, they can be difficult to work with because of their inherent hardness. Using a new specialized tip design, Super Tip Drill Bits can drill through granite and porcelain tile-as well as marble and ceramic-with ease. Less strenuous drilling leads to greater accuracy and a quicker installation time.

"Our new line of Super Tip Drill Bits are becoming increasingly popular because customers are seeing the value in expedited drilling," said Gary Byrum, Product Manager at C.R. Laurence. "The goal is to give glaziers the tools they need to overcome challenges and install beautiful and lasting frameless shower door systems."

Super Tip Drill Bits are designed for use with percussion and rotary drill machines. They are available in 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", and 3/8" sizes. To learn more about CRL's full line of drilling tools and accessories, visit crlaurence.com/drill-bits or call (800) 421-6144 ext. 7740.
