Professional painting tools manufacturer Purdy has launched the “new and highly anticipated” Purdy Painter’s Backpack into the UK market. Reportedly the first bespoke painter’s backpack, it has been designed as the ultimate storage system for professional painting tools.
The Backpack hosts several dedicated pockets for a variety of tools including a pocket for roller frames and sleeves up to 18”, an external extension pole compartment, as well as slots for prep tools and a multitude of brushes; this also includes a detachable pouch specifically for transporting wet brushes and rollers – containing the paint within the compartment and saving clean up time on site or risking leakage to other tools. The Backpack can also be laid flat to ensure efficient access.
Furthermore, there are external compartments and clips for personal items, water bottles; and an external USB connector to keep devices charged, that only requires a power pack to use. Ergonomically designed, with robust heavy duty grips, rugged metal zippers, and even weight distribution, the Backpack is comfortable to carry even when fully loaded.
The company has also released its Purdy Pail, a one litre capacity paint bucket designed with different grip options to reduce hand fatigue, and flexible bail handle to securely fit onto a ladder hook – improving safety.
Described as an ideal addition to a decorator’s tool set, the Pail has been designed with a brush magnet, and an interior mini roller rest that fits up to 4.5” mini roller sleeves. Both of these features are designed to keep brushes and rollers out of the paint, preventing them from becoming saturated.
The mini roller grid, moulded into the pail, will ensure excess paint is removed and that equal pick-up of product is distributed throughout for a flawless application. To reduce time on-site, the Purdy Pail is available with pail liners that come in packs of three which maintain the roll-off grid pattern of the pail and allow for quick colour changes and clean up once work is completed.
