If you are an experienced builder or tradesperson, you will know the importance of having the right tools before you start a job. Often, even the simplest of commercial or residential renovations will present a myriad of different tasks and challenges – many of which require specialist kit. Stripping walls, woodwork and plasterboard is one of those tasks where the right tools are essential – having the right heat or hot air gun will ensure that you can complete the job to the highest standard and in the most time-efficient way.
With many brands and different types of heat and hot air guns on the market, it can be difficult to know which one to choose, and which one is going to offer you the best quality finish. Builders’ favourite brand, DeWalt, is a great place to start. Its selection of DeWalt heat and hot air guns is second to none, and you will almost certainly find a gun that is right for your individual needs.
DeWalt heat and hot air guns are designed to strip even the toughest of paint and other materials from a range of walls and other surfaces. Its variety of heat guns come with a range of useful features that make paint stripping and other heat-related tasks easy and remove the need for hard, labour-intensive manual tasks. Many of the DeWalt hot air guns come with a power output of at least 2,000 watts and have temperature controls ranging from around 50 degrees to 600 degrees centigrade.
Although many of DeWalt’s heat and hot air guns are compact and lightweight for easy storage and handling, they are also known to be particularly robust, withstanding even the toughest of working environments. Durability is also forefront – your DeWalt hot air or heat gun will be your trusty tool for years to come – withstanding all sorts of general wear and tear. They will also come with a manufacturer’s guarantee, in the unlikely event that anything should go wrong.
The speed of air flow is also another important consideration when choosing a hot air or heat gun. DeWalt has a selection that includes a variety of airflow speeds, often with various speed settings with any one piece of equipment. Many heat guns are now also equipped with state of the art LCD displays, which can tell you the exact temperature the tool is set to.
Although DeWalt designs and manufactures its range of heat and hot air guns to be easy to handle, it can be demanding using these types of tools for longer periods of time. For jobs that require longer use periods, many hot air guns also come equipped with a flip-out stand, which you can place the gun on for hands-free use. These can also be purchased separately – an accessory well worth investing in. You can also opt for either a corded or a cordless heat gun through DeWalt – depending on your individual preference.
DeWalt is a brand that is synonymous with reasonable prices – without compromising on quality. Its ethos is to provide professional standard tools that can be used by anyone, even those with minimal experience. That’s why – while they are a firm favourite on the professional building scene – they are also preferred by the everyday homeowner looking to carry out a range of tasks. DeWalt’s range of hot air and heat guns vary in price – making it possible to purchase an entry-level piece of equipment without the hefty price tag associated with more complex machinery.
When undertaking any task that requires extreme heat, it is essential to have the right protective wear to minimise the risk of accidents and injury. For those looking to use a DeWalt hot air gun, the tool manufacturer also designs a range of clothing and protective wear. Accessories such as eye masks, ear covers, face masks, helmets and fire retardant clothing are all must-haves. The good news is that they can all be purchased through DeWalt at the Tool Shed!
