EASY PUSH caulking gun or how to make the everyday life of craftsmen more pleasant

Chemical resins allow rapid sealing of heavy objects (awning, gate, air conditioner, etc.). However, unsuitable equipment complicates the extrusion of the material from the cartridge and, by repetition, increases the risk of Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs).

Scell-it and the designers of Unistudio, have developed a caulking gun with solid cartridges, simplifying extrusion and respecting its user’s body. The pressure movement exerted when the user extrudes the material from the cartridge is redesigned. The traditional pivot handle turns into a gentle translational movement, multiplying the force for a uniform distribution, without effort.
