Rapid launches its first power tools in the Power for All Alliance partnership
A single 18V battery for a variety of tools from leading global brands. The Power for All Alliance partnership makes a real difference in homes around the world. You can use the same battery for the lawnmower from Gardena as in the Bosch screwdriver. And this battery can now also be used in a glue gun and a hot air gun from Swedish fixing specialist, Rapid.
The BGX500 glue gun has a variety of features, and provides a high glue flow rate. It’s just as useful in the toolbox of a designer or installation technician as in the toolbox of a DIY home enthusiast. The same goes for the RX1000 hot air gun – really useful in the home for heat shrinking tubes, shaping plastic, thawing water pipes, removing labels, waxing snowboards and skis, or why not for removing weeds.
“The launch of both tools also signals Rapid’s introduction of power tools on the market. This autumn, we’re launching three more battery-powered tools as part of the battery alliance – a brad nailer and two staple guns. The other brands are also launching new products all the time, and new brands are continually joining the alliance. Recently, we were joined by Husqvarna, so the Power for All Alliance is experiencing real growth on the market,” says Ulrik Frii, Marketing Director of Rapid Tools.
With the same battery for a variety of tools and equipment from leading brands, users save money and don’t have to keep track of different batteries and chargers. Easy, flexible, and durable.
