Blue 2 Flat Boxes

The Tapepro Flat Boxes are high capacity, and feature a unique peened construction for additional strength.
Tapepro Flat Boxes apply joint compound to all flat recess and butt joints, automatically crowning the joint and feathering the edges.
The pressure plate is fitted to an axle for the smoothest operation. The wheels are mounted on a fixed axle for more rigidity and run inside the blade width so the blade is always the last thing on the wall – very handy for butt joints!

  • Rugged design built to last
  • Larger capacity boxes deliver increased productivity
  • Improved design for adjusting blade tension allows easy accurate setting for the perfect crown
  • Anodized marine grade aluminium plates peened together for superior durability
  • Pressure plate lid opens wide allowing easy access for cleaning
  • Pressure plate mounted on axle with bearings for smoother operation
  • Wheels run inside blade width
  • New springs allow easy and full opening of lid
  • Can be fitted with FBBG bead guides for corner or shadow beads
  • Can be fitted with RP-200 Recess Plate for faster work flow filling the board recess after taping

Booster Auto Boxes

Tapepro Booster Auto Boxes feature a spring loaded pressure plate (lid) that helps force joint compound out of the box. This reduces the effort required and is particularly handy for out of position or difficult to reach areas.
The springs are positioned so that they operate to close the pressure plate. For control, the pressure plate is held in position by a ratchet mechanism which is released when the box is positioned on a flat surface such as a wall or ceiling. The release pawl rotates about the wheel axle, and features a wheel that runs on the underside of the box.
When the box is positioned on the wall, pressure is applied to the wheel which rotates the pawl out of engagement with the arc. This allows the springs to apply pressure to the compound to reduce the pressure required from the operator.When the box is removed from the wall, the pawl re-engages and prevents the operation of the springs, stopping the flow of joint compound.

  • Reverse springs – easier to push
  • Durable components
  • Easy to operate
  • Reduced fatigue

Pro-Reach SuperLite

What happens when the Pro-Reach range meets the SuperLite range? You get the best of both!
The FHX-SL handle uses a new filament wound carbon fibre tube, and the same lightened head and hollow pivot pin from the SuperLite handles. As with the normal FHX, the head has been anodised for greater wear resistance – and looks so good in black!
This new extendable is 200g lighter than the old one, and all the weight saving is at the head end where you feel it most.
The carbon fibre tube has the added advantage of being more comfortable, especially in winter when aluminium tubes can be very cold. The filament wound tube is very strong and also provides some grip for your hand.

  • Weight: 1.2kg (2.6 lb)
  • Length: 980 – 1600mm, 4 positions
  • Carbon fibre outer tube, anodised aluminium inner tube
  • Anodised head
  • Hollow pivot pin

Recess Plate

The RP-200 Recess Plate is designed to be fitted to a Tapepro 200mm Flat box, to reduce the finished width to 140mm.
This is great for filling the recess after taping and provides a clean machine finish, feathered at the shoulder of the recess.
It works well in the following system:
Tape in flat joints using a Mud Box
Flatten tape with a joint knife (same speed as Mud Box)
Fill and finish recess with Flat Box and Recess Plate (same speed as Mud Box)
When dry, coat with 200mm Flat Box
When dry, finish with 300mm Flat Box
The Recess Plate fits under the edge of the skids, and is retained by spring pressure on the wheel axle.
Depending on compound consistency, try a blade tension setting of 4 or 5.

  • LASER cut from durable stainless steel sheet metal
  • Easy fitment to 200mm Tapepro Flat Boxes
  • Not permanent – easily removed

Shorty Flat Box Handle

The new “Shorty” mini handle from Tapepro allows you to get close to your flat box, real close.
The Shorty attaches to your flat box the same way as normal handles, but has no moving parts – no brake. It consists of a control grip, and a push plate. The grip can be be adjusted for height and angle, and it’s easy to sweep the flat box off the wall. It feels more like an extension of your hand.
Handy for confined spaces where a normal handle won’t fit, or for added control and balance when working at height – great for scaffold work or when using stilts. You’ll also find those high or low joints easier when you can get closer to your flat box.
The Shorty handle can also be used to give an “Auto Box” style assist. Simply extend the fingers from the hand on the push plate and grab the lip of the flat box radius plate. You can then squeeze the two together to push more compound out. Handy when you’re in a difficult position.

  • Adjustable Grip – Use 4mm or 5/32″ allen key to adjust the grip both vertically and horizontally
  • More Power – Rest your hand on the push plate and loop your fingers over the front of the box for an “Auto Box” like action
  • Precision Control – The comfortable and ergonomic grip allows complete control over the path of your Flat Box
  • Compact Size – Coat joints in tight spaces like cupboards, toilets and hallways fast using your Flat Box
  • Simplified Design – No moving parts
