The endurance athlete of the building site.

Because of the way it’s designed, your Airbow Framer will spend less time out-of-action and more time firing nails.

An extension of your arm.

This cordless nail gun doesn’t tip forward. It draws the centre of gravity lower, into the palm of the hand, to create balance and an extremely comfortable firing experience.

Low maintenance.

The Airbow Framer needs no self-servicing or cleaning. There’s no carbon build up or risk of sawdust clogs, which means fewer breakdowns or forced services.

Easy on your ears.

From the first shot you’ll hear the difference. The Airbow Framer is significantly quieter than similar butane-fuelled tools.

Kind to your body.

Through smart design, the Airbow Framer has low kick-back to reduce impact on your wrists, shoulders and elbows.
