Popular Mechanics chooses JacPac CO2 Power System for its 2007
Tue, May 22nd, 2007(WATERLOO, Ontario - May 22, 2007) JacPac® CO2 Power System was awarded Popular Mechanics' Editor's Choice Award in recognition of outstanding achievement in new product design and innovation at the National Hardware Show in Orlando, Florida on May 8, 2007. The award highlights "the most useful and innovative new products for your tool box."
JacPac's break-through technology uses easy-to-carry CO2 canisters as its pneumatic power source. Popular Mechanics' editors recognized that with JacPac, common air-powered hand tools are now free from reliance on the heavy, noisy conventional air compressors.
"Fast, effortless pneumatic nailing has long been an integral part of the carpentry industry. And, until now, you needed to lug a noisy air compressor from site to site. The new JacPac CO2 system utilizes a compact pressurized CO2 cylinder that you carry on your belt and that silently drives up to 500 nails on a single charge," according to Popular Mechanics.
The JacPac CO2 Power System was developed by Supplierpipeline Inc. of Waterloo, Ontario. Supplierpipeline is Canada's number one manufacturer of climbing products (ladders) in Canada, which are marketed under the Lite, Gryphon and Eagle brands. Supplierpipeline is also an emerging player in the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) power tool market with the introduction of the JacPac line in 2006.
JacPac has already garnered another major award when it was named one of the Top 10 Tool Innovations for 2007 by Workbench magazine in March.
Workbench, a popular publication targeting the rapidly growing do-it-yourself market, said, "...with the advent of the JacPac CO2 the inevitable extinction of the hammer maybe at hand."
The JacPac CO2 Power System comes with a cartridge; regulator and hose for $119.99, or as a kit that includes a pneumatic brad gun for $189.99. A (refillable) 9-ounce cylinder costs $29.99. (US dollars).
