SADDLE BROOK, NJ--Arrow Fastener Company, LLC, the product line leader in manual and electronic staple and nail guns for the building trade professional and do-it-yourself markets, will feature its new R.E.D.™ product line at the National Association of Home Builders’ International Builders’ Show in Orlando, January 12 – 15, 2011.

* T50 R.E.D.™ Professional Manual Staple Gun and 1” Brad Nail Gun
* ET50 R.E.D.™ Electric Staple Gun
* The HT50i R.E.D.™ Hammer Tacker

In addition, a special press event will be held from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. on Friday, January 14, when all four products will be demonstrated to the media. At 1:00 p.m. on Friday, the company will select the grand prize winner of its Arrow Camaro sweepstakes, who will win a 2011 Camaro that is on display throughout the show in the Arrow Fastener booth. The contest has been held online and on Facebook beginning October 22, 2010 and has already given away over 250 R.E.D.™ products to nearly 20,000 sweepstakes contestants.

The T50 R.E.D.™ professional manual staple gun and 1” brad nail gun features U.S. patented drive technology that enables the user to set a staple or nail right on virtually any surface. It also offers up to 40 percent more power than selective competitive products on the market, which makes it more versatile on the job site. Professionals and DIYers alike will really appreciate that the T50 R.E.D.™ staple gun is 50 percent easier to squeeze than the T50® staple gun, which results in much less fatigue so you can keep working longer. It’s also the only manual tacker capable of firing a 1” brad nail.

The ET50 R.E.D.™ Electric Staple Gun features an ergonomic soft, rubber grip for maximum comfort and less fatigue and an LED guide light allowing professionals to continue working in a variety of lighting conditions. Its reliability comes from its electric firing technology and depth of drive control that enables the user to set staples right on virtually any surface and a precision fastener control that resists jamming. A bottom-loading staple system allows faster reloads on the job and the flexibility to choose among six sizes of T50® staples: 1/4” (6mm) to 9/16” (14mm). A rotating belt hook makes it easy to carry the ET50 R.E.D.™ Electric Staple Gun and the blow-molded case protects the tool when it’s not in use.

The HT50i R.E.D.™ Hammer Tacker brings professional contractors an easy bottom load system that holds two full strips staples and uses three sizes of T50® staples: 1/4” (6mm), 5/16” (8mm) and 3/8” (10mm). It is tough and lightweight due to its diecast housing and features a balanced weighted head for improved driving power. The jam-resistant mechanism reduces downtime on the job and an ergonomic soft rubber grip enables professionals to work longer with less fatigue and more comfort.

The EBN320 R.E.D.™ Electric Brad Nail Gun uses up to 2” (50mm) 18 gauge Brad Nails. Its electric firing technology and depth of drive control enable professionals to set nails right on virtually every surface, improving efficiency and reducing re-work on the jobsite. The precision fastener control resists jams, and an easy jam-clearing mechanism reduces downtime if a misfire occurs, with no tools required. A contact safety mechanism ensures safe operation.
