Foamboard Stapler Tools & Staples
Whenever project involves installing PEX tubing on top of extruded foamboard insulation, such as styrofoam, polystyrene or polyurethane, Foamboard Stapler and Staples are the easiest and fastest way to secure the tubing. Foamboard staples are manufactured in strips and can be easily loaded into the tool, significantly reducing the installation time. Each foamboard staple features a U-shaped design with arrow shaped ends, which easily penetrates the insulation and hold the PEX tubing firmly in place, preventing it from floating or movement when concrete is poured on top. If you purchase a foamboard stapler tool, always get the same brand staples to assure 100% compatibility.
