It is optimised to deploy reeled ballistic microfibre up to 2.0 mm diameter in 5mm, 6mm, 7mm and 8mm microducts over distances up to 1000 metres.
This ergonomic pistol-shaped installation gun has a unique anti-buckle feature to prevent fibre damage whilst blowing. It provides extremely efficient air delivery performance, allowing it to be used with a small air compressors such as the BT9A.
Its ‘cruise control’ technology enables hands-free operation.
