Win a WELDY energy hot air hand tool

The need for promotional banners and signs, marquees and tarpaulin has increased over recent years. Outdoor events and facilities such as festivals, campsites and roadshows have enjoyed a significant increase in popularity, with consumers favouring to holiday within the UK rather than opting to go abroad.

As a result, there is a greater requirement for marquees, banners and signage, and tarpaulin for tents, pop-up shades, festival signs, and other applications.

In acknowledgement, Welwyn Tool Group, the tool distribution company, is giving Stand Out readers the chance to win one of its compact and robust hot air hand tools – the WELDY energy HT1600.

This handheld tool offers solid overall performance with an unbeatable cost performance ratio for welding PVC and tarpaulin membranes.

The increase in demand for marquees and other tarpaulin products is undoubtedly positive, but does pose a few potential problems for suppliers. More machinery will be required with more staff to operate it, with extended premises in order to fit the machines in. Such levels of expansion can be costly.

There is a solution, in the form of the HEMTEK ST – an innovative and compact bench mounted single-user operated machine, which enables manufacturers to cost effectively produce and repair banners, marquees and tarpaulin with much greater efficiency.

Developed by Leister Technologies and brought to the UK by Welwyn Tool Group, the HEMTEK ST – currently available at the special discount price of £1995 +VAT – significantly increases the efficiency for manufacturing and repairing tarpaulin. It can complete the whole welding process from beginning to end (with welding speeds of up to 12 metres per minute) and offers organisers, campsite owners and manufacturers an incredibly easy to operate and user-friendly tool. Tasks such as repairing marquees and manufacturing tarpaulin signage can be carried out quickly, other applications including solar shading, covers for boats, and bouncy castles can also benefit.
