Franklin Bender

You want to speed up roller applications on every job, right! Then equip your extension poles with the new . PaintPRO recently gave this new tool a rigorous test-roll and found it an excellent tool to work with. The Franklin Bender breaks all traditional methods of rolling and gives painters virtually a new way to paint that is faster and better. Here are some simple tips for improving your rolling applications with the Franklin Bender:

Shows the Franklin Bender rolling the face frame of a window in a traditional manner. (Note: the shorter roller frame in use with the Franklin Bender).

Without use of a ladder, the angle of the roller is quickly changed to reach up between second story windows and backroll a difficult section of the wall.

Without bending over or having to resort to a repetitive up and down motion with the roller, the angle of the Franklin Bender is quickly changed, once again, to provide faster back-rolling ability.

Again, without using the ladder or bending a roller frame, the Franklin Bender quickly adjusts to another angle for back-rolling this board. Keep in mind, with a very slight angle on the roller the under side of this wall can be back-rolled without standing directly beneath the roller) where splatters and drops can get you).

At PaintPRO, we believe this tool, like a quality brush, roller or airless sprayer, needs to be in the hands of every professional painter. Invest in the tools that can make your job better and easier.
