Automatic Drywall Taping Tools UK


With the plastering industry becoming more and more competitive, the need to be on top of your game when it comes to having the latest tools and techniques is growing increasingly more important. Customers are demanding faster, cheaper and more effective results, while tools are reaching the market that are getting the job done in a fraction of the time.

It’s not only the plastering industry where tools have been developed that do some of the work for you, getting some of the harder to reach jobs done, while offering better results and a more satisfying end result.

The age of technology has benefited many a trade over the years, so it’s not surprising that many large plastering companies prefer to use Automatic Drywall Taping Tools, UK wide, because of the huge benefits, not only to profitability but also job results.

The Benefits of Automatic Drywall Taping Tools

When you look at it, the benefits of using Automatic Drywall Taping Tools far outweigh the small downsides which may include weight of the tool leading to muscle fatigue, initial expense and cleaning time. These benefits include:

• A better, more consistent finish – an automatic taping tool will ensure the correct amount of joint compound is applied, with the same consistency all the way across.

• Less sanding time, less compound wasted – Because the automatic taping tools apply just the right amount of compound, there’s less to be wasted when you have to sand the surplus off and less time wasted in doing the sanding itself.

• Safer working environment – Because many of the taping tools can reach those high up places it reduces the need for stilts, ladders and scaffolding which are one of the main causes of accidents in the plasterer’s workplace.

• Makes the job faster and easier – finishing can be done much faster with an automatic drywall taping tool than with hand tools, such as a taping knife, pan and hawk. The automatic taper will also apply the compound and tape to a joint at the same time, while both sides of a corner can be finished simultaneously with a corner finisher, meaning you don’t have to wait for one side to dry before doing the other.

• Save money – an automatic taping tool is proven to get the job done quicker with chances of a more consistent end result, meaning more profit on time saved and less unhappy customers and callbacks.

Make Life Easier with Level 5 Automatic Tools

The amount of time saved and the safer working environment achieved by using automatic drywall taping tools seem to cancel out the potential burden of added weight – because the job is done in a fraction of the time. And, when you imagine the amount of time and money you’ll save in being able to do a quicker, more consistent job, it outweighs the initial expense of buying the automatic tools in the first place.
