New Tapepro Drywall tools on show at Big 5

Tapepro Drywall Tools has said that at this year's Big 5 show it will exhibit the latest automatic taping tools for finishing joints in plasterboard construction.

According to the company, the tools are designed to produce a professional finish while reducing work fatigue and increasing productivity to work three to four times faster than setting by hand.

The Tapepro line of tools incorporates design expertise that provides the contractor with greater durability and reliability and also offers a three-year warranty.

Some of the recent developments include:

The Tapepro Straight Glazer range - SG-55, SG-75 and SG-90 which is used for finishing joint compounds in internal corners.

•  The Mud Box Pro - a new model mud box for simultaneously applying paper tape and joint compounds to all flat and internal angle joints in plasterboards.

•  A new robust tools case made from checker plate aluminium with roller wheels.

•  A new range of cornice heads for making cornice installations faster, easier and cleaner.

With gypsum plasterboard being used widely, Tapepro considers that the GCC countries would benefit greatly from using mechanical tools for finishing the joints in plasterboard construction. These tools have been in widespread use though out Australia, Europe and the USA for many years.

At present there is very limited use of these tools in the GCC countries, but as they increase productivity three-to-four fold, and produce a consistent high standard of finish, the time would appear right for their adoption.
