case study: Render Removal
Project Outline: Removing render from an external house wall
tool: 2ft Long Reach Chisel Scaler & Needle Attachment
The Trelawny Long Reach Scaler is the perfect tool for removing multiple types of industrial & domestic floor & wall coverings such as tiles, render, plaster, carpet & other material build-ups. A recent project being undertaken by a new customer saw the Long Reach tool being used to remove external rendering from a property in the Midlands.
Here’s what Ian Harrison of Harrison Plastering said about using the Trelawny Long Reach, “I’ve always used electric breaker/kango style tools in the past for removing larger areas of render and tiles but always found them heavy and cumbersome to use. The other issue with electric tools is they can get quite warm after a period of use so you need to take breaks and allow them to cool down which can hold up progress.”
He continued on to add “The Trelawny 2ft Long Reach tool I purchased recently is great because it’s just as powerful as the electric tools but as it’s air-powered, it can run continuously without needing any breaks. It uses such low air consumption (4.5cfm) that I can run it off my 100ltr electric compressor which is portable and easy to get to and from jobs.”
When asked about the different attachments, Ian answered “The different attachments are great as well, I’ve taken a combination of blades and chisels for taking off large chunks of render at one time but also for chiselling off some of the more stubborn areas. There’s even a needle attachment for cleaning up brick faces afterwards as well. The tool was available ex-stock and delivered quickly in time for my first job.”
Ian (and his client) were extremely pleased with the end result of the rendering removal project, and will continue to use the Trelawny Long Reach & Needle Scaler attachment for similar tasks in the future.
