Are you unsure which tools are available for hanging wallpaper and which implements you require?
We’ve put together a brief overview for you:
This 10-part wallpapering set includes the most important tools to achieve perfect wallpapering results. It consists of a rectangular 8-litre plastic paint bucket, a paste roller for non-woven wallpapers, a seam roller, a pressure roller, wallpaper scissors, a narrow spatula and a slightly wider spatula, a plastic pressure spatula with flexible pressure edge, a 4x5 m tarpaulin, a wooden folding ruler and a cutter knife. Our information on the topic of ‘Wallpapering’.
A pressure spatula is suitable for wall coverings with a hard-wearing surface such as smooth non-woven wallpaper and is made of high-quality, unbreakable rigid PVC, with safely rounded corners. The slot in the spatula serves as a safe guide for the blade when trimming the wallpaper strips on baseboards.
The most common tool for applying pressure to the wallpaper is the pressure roller. This is a high-quality paint roller with a cylinder made from PU foam including a roller bracket with hollow plastic handles. It is suitable for non-woven, metallic, textile and textured profile wallpapers.
To avoid getting your hands dirty, we would recommend nylon woven gloves with a PU coating and a very good and flexible fit as well as good abrasion resistance.
Wallpaper tear-off ruler
To prevent tearing the wallpaper untidily, the use of a wallpaper tear-off ruler with plastic backing and a high-quality stainless steel rail is required.
Wallpapering scissors are the symbolic tool of wallpapering, however, they are often replaced by tools such as the tear-off edge and cutter knives. Nevertheless, we recommend using rust-proof, high-quality wallpaper scissors with moulded-on plastic eyes, especially for heavy wall coverings (textile wallpapers, etc.).
