The story behind the AIRBOW® FRAMER

AIRBOW®’s genesis occurred when a small group of builders in New Zealand were frustrated with the performance of their framing guns. Joining forces with talented Kiwi mechanical engineers, they set out on a path of invention and improvement. Long hours and several prototypes later, they succeeded in perfecting the next generation nail gun.

Research, design and development are at the core of AIRBOW®. We believe that it is the development of new technologies that allows us to challenge conventional design. Prototypes have been subjected to months of repetitive and rigorous testing, and our engineering team have called on the expertise of construction experts to deliver a tool that every builder will want to use.

The ergonomically-balanced AIRBOW® FRAMER is untethered and harnesses the clean, uncompromising power of compressed air.

The AIRBOW® FRAMER’s power is realised through the HAMMER FORCE TECHNOLOGY® valve actuation system, which allows the gun to direct one gram of compressed air into a single impact point to drive nails home each and every time.

In order to create the ultimate nail gun, we trialled multiple prototypes during core testing, and fired millions of nails using automated rigs. The resulting product, the first in an anticipated series of AIRBOW® untethered power tools, delivers breath-taking performance and is built to last.

The AIRBOW® FRAMER has no combustion system, on-board electronics, batteries or cords. It doesn’t require a charger, fuel cells or batteries. It’s strong, quiet and resilient without these components, and using only compressed air, can deliver serious power.

By doing more with less, the AIRBOW® FRAMER supports a company’s sustainability measures, making it easier to reach targets. We considered both the health of the builder and ongoing environmental impact when designing your dream framing gun.
