S’been a while since I’ve come out with a new fan-dangled tool review. So I got the gaffer to get some of Rapid’s brand spanking new stapler range - The Rapid Alu900 range. It has a fancy patented Powercurve technologyTM which reduces the force needed to operate hand staplers by 65%.
Developed by physiotherapists, the technology reduces hand and shoulder strain when stapling.
The Alu range has a 53 Series version and a 13 Series version for general purpose and upholstery stapling and also a 140 series version which is better on those fine fabrics, vinyl and leather. Amazingly all with also operate an 18 Gauge brad (15 mm only) making each of these Staplers a combination tool.
Uses include: Upholstery – Textiles – Carpets – Canvas prints – Netting – Leather - Thin Board - Home decor - Flooring
We even have a really special offer customers wanting to try this new range of Staple Guns (see below) thanks to the manufacturers who have kindly worked with us on this one. They have also produced a informative video which outlines the problems when using conventional hand staplers - and how the Alu range of hand operated staple guns aim to solve this.
Nice, lightweight tool with an easy to open magazine. The adjustable power slider is easy to move and is adjusted for different staple depths or wood density.
The tool is amazingly easy to operate. (even for poor Chloe in the office who was suitably impressed, she suffers from joint-y type things!) Nice comfortable rubber grip as well, which should make using the tool even more comfortable to use – let’s put it to the test!
N.B. Only use 18 Gauge 15mm Brads with these tools. As they aren’t designed to fire anything smaller.
Me in the stapling lab, testing tools :)
The Final Verdict
I think that Rapid’s Alu range is definitely going to be making lives easier in the world of stapling. With the different models available as well, it gives you a range for your stapling needs. I believe the Powercurve technology is definitely effective and will make stapling with hand operated tools so much easier. So with all that in mind, I’m going to give the rapid Alu range a well-deserved 5* Chuck rating.
