Festool all set to revolutionise drywalling

Published on : Friday, September 11, 2020

Turning its attention to achieving smooth surfaces, Festool is now proclaiming a revolution in drywalling with PLANEX – its next-generation long-reach sander, this October.

To kick-start this industry upheaval, Festool has kitted the new PLANEX long-reach sander with LED lights and random orbital motion capability. A ring of LED lights works like built-in strip lighting and is designed to reveal any unevenness during the sanding process. The random orbital sanding movement, meanwhile, ensures an excellent surface quality, which Festool promises will eliminate the need for costly reworking. To provide maximum cleanliness and ergonomics, particularly during overhead work, PLANEX features an adjustable dust extraction system, a variable working length and a special T handle that makes guiding the device as easy and effortless as possible. PLANEX is expected to launch in October 2020.
