Exclusive features provide convenience and speed when painting fences, sheds and more
TOWSON, Md. (April 10, 2012) – This spring stop making excuses and start increasing curb and backyard appeal with the all-new line of Black & Decker® (NYSE: SWK) exterior paint sprayers. The five new paint sprayers from Black & Decker make outdoor painting and staining projects, like updating a fence, shed or porch furniture, easy and up to five times faster than with traditional rollers and brushes* thanks to innovative new features like the exclusive Easy Fill™ side reservoir system and Quick Clean™ system.
Black & Decker’s new powered Airless paint sprayers and High Volume Low Pressure (HVLP) paint sprayers are loaded with features not seen on any other paint sprayer on the market today, including:
The exclusive Easy Fill side fill canister, available on each of the new sprayers, allows for fast refills with fewer drips and less mess**. The advantage of the Easy Fill canister is that the user will not have to take the sprayer apart for refills. Instead, simply lay the sprayer on its side, unscrew the side canister lid, pour in the refill, replace the lid, and spray. There’s no dripping from the sprayer pick up tube because it doesn’t come out of the canister. The sprayer also comes with a pour assist bucket to help transfer paint and stain from cans to the sprayer.
An exclusive Quick Clean system available on the BDPS600 and BDPS400 Airless paint sprayers easily flushes out paint without having to take the sprayer apart. Simply turn the dial from paint to clean, add water (or recommended cleaning solution) to the quick clean reservoir and push the trigger – water (or cleaning solution) will spray through the nozzle, clearing the way. This is especially useful to help prevent clogging resulting from drying during paint breaks or when preparing to clean the sprayer after your project is complete. This feature also saves paint as you test which nozzle and pattern is right for your project with water, instead of paint. Once you know you’ve selected the right pattern and nozzle, simply move the switch back to the paint mode and you are ready to spray.
A user-friendly SmartSelect™ spray tip for correct nozzle pattern selection and adjustments is available on the two HVLP paint sprayers. Simply rotate the spray tip to select either horizontal, vertical or round spray pattern and the sprayer automatically adjusts for optimal spraying results. The SmartSelect graphics make it easy to choose the right pattern and eliminate guessing pattern selections.
“We wanted to simplify painting and staining with a line of sprayers to make it easy, faster* and non-intimidating for consumers,” said Steve Wiezorek, director of product marketing at Black & Decker. “Black & Decker’s new sprayers help to eliminate common frustrations like application trial and error, refilling, nozzle and spray pattern confusion and messy cleanup. We know consumers will be pleased with how easy to use our sprayers are, and impressed with the high-quality, professional results they can achieve in less time*.”
Airless Paint Sprayers
For consumers looking for a paint sprayer for thicker paints and stains that offer more power and faster application than HVLP sprayers, the three new Black & Decker powered Airless paint sprayers are the perfect option. These sprayers provide the ultimate convenience in set-up, refill and cleanup for exterior painting projects. The 2-Speed Quick Clean Sprayer (BDPS600) and single Speed Quick Clean Sprayer (BDPS400) each feature an exclusive Quick Clean flushing system that can be used before, during and after painting. This quick cleaning system gives the user a good start on cleaning prior to taking sprayer apart to clean before storing, and helps save paint when determining correct settings.
All three Airless paint sprayers, including the Single Speed Powered Sprayer (BDPS200) feature the exclusive Easy Fill canister which allows for fast refills with fewer drips and less mess**; color-coded nozzles for easy pattern set up of either a fan or cone spray, and a quick release front end that helps users access internal parts during cleaning. All three models are now available via BlackandDecker.com/paint and Amazon and come with a full two-year warranty and range in price from $79.97 to $119.
HVLP Paint Sprayers
Black & Decker’s two new HVLP sprayers offer more control and precision in application than Airless models and feature a user-friendly SmartSelect nozzle for paint pattern selection and adjustments. The BDPH400 floor based sprayer features a 20-foot hose connecting the sprayer to the motor for extended reach and less weight in the hand of the user. Additional helpful features include a flow control indicator for easy repeatability when setting flow, and the exclusive Easy Fill reservoir allows for fast refills with fewer drips and less mess**.
Black & Decker’s new HVLP paint sprayers come in two models for consumers, a Floor Based HVLP SmartSelect Sprayer for $119 and the Hand Held HVLP SmartSelect Sprayer (BDPH200) for $79.97. The HVLP sprayers are now available via BlackandDecker.com/paint and Amazon and come with a full two-year warranty.
