Extension pipes in 3 lengths

  • standard - 100 mm (4”)
  • 250 mm (10”)
  • 500 mm (20”)

When ordering safety guns with longer pipes than standard, specify the length last in the order number. Safety gun-extension pipe length, e.g 500-R-250.

Handle

No muscle strain
The trigger mechanism requires a pressure of only 7 N (25 oz), which means that the gun can be used frequently without the risk of taxing muscles. The average finger strength of men is 96 N (339 oz) and of women, 81 N (295 oz). When less than 10% of the maximum strength of a finger is used, no injury arises due to muscle strain.

Ergonomics and precision
The combination of an ergonomic handle and a short trigger for one or two fingers provides a perfect grip as well as the possibility to aim the gun with precision and feeling. The ergonomic design of the handle automatically gives you the optimal blowing position so that you do not need to bend your wrist.

Triggers
Our safety guns are fitted with short triggers as standard to provide the most ergonomic grip. If desired however, they can also be equipped with extended triggers.
