Novus staples are made exclusively from galvanized, non-copper plated wire in order to assure optimal protection against rust as well as environmental safety. Starting at a length of 8 mm, only hard or super-hard wire is used in production. All the staples can also be used with other tackers besides those made by Novus. Many different types of staples for different areas of application are offered for sale:
The type 53 fine wire staples can be used in all the tackers that we have on offer. They are primarily used for fastening textiles, thin wooden profiles, wire mesh, thin metal labels and all other materials which can withstand a certain amount of tensile stress.
The type 53F flat wire staples can be used in all of the tackers that we have on offer except the Novus hand tacker J-02 AL. Because they are made from flat wire, they are especially good for fastening materials which are not particularly tear resistant like, for example, plastic films, aluminium lamination, paper and cardboard, wax and oil paper as well as labels.
The type L cable staples can only be used with the Novus hand tacker J-02 AL. They are designed for fastening wires, wire mesh and low-voltage cables with diameters up to 6 mm (up to a maximum of 50 volts!). The so-called D-point (divergent point) on the cable stapler has a sawn cut which helps to spread the legs upon penetration for better holding power.
The type J nail can only be used with the Novus hand tacker J-19 EADHG and the electric tacker J-105 EADHG. They are especially good for fastening wood or plastic profiles.
Tackers (staple guns) are very versatile tools when it comes to affixing materials like, for example, films, wire mesh, textiles, carpets, paper and cardboard as well as wood and derived timber products to materials that can accept nails.
There are two basic types of tackers: hand tackers in which the staples are driven manually by a spring and electric tackers and pneumatic tackers in which the staples are automatically driven into place. At this time our product line is limited to hand and electric tackers.
One of the most important considerations when buying a tacker is its weight. Working with the lighter version is less effort but it should be noted that it is the weight of the device which absorbs the recoil energy and therefore relieves the pressure to hand and wrist. In addition, heavier tackers, in the case of horizontal application, require a lot less impact to work.
Whether you decide to go with an electric tacker with a plastic housing or a hand tacker with a metal housing should primarily depend on how quickly and how often you will be using this tool. If time is an important consideration we recommend an electric tacker but if it is not to be used so often a hand tacker is good enough.
Last but not least, the type of staple to be used should be taken into account in your choice of tacker. We have on offer various tackers which will not work with all the different types of staples. Please keep this in mind when buying your tool.
