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.
Uses include: Upholstery – Textiles – Carpets – Canvas prints – Netting – Leather - Thin Board - Home decor
We even have a really special introductory offer .....
