Advantages of Using the Giraffe Sander

As with any DIY job, having the right tool makes all the difference. The Giraffe Sander has been specifically designed to tackle those large drywall walls.

Benefits included:

  • Increased surface area
  • The first thing you’ll notice about your drywall sander is the large, wide base of the sander. This makes it easier to attack those big walls, since you can attack a larger section of wall at a time. The base is designed to handle those large joints in drywall in one stroke.
  • Dust extraction
  • The second major benefit of this gypsum sander is the built-in dust extraction. This is designed to collect all those fine drywall dust particles away from the motor and then eject them into the attached bag.
  • Accurate and safe control.
  • Thanks to the numerous grip options, you can always guide yourself precisely and safely, even directly in front of your body.

Giraffe Sander with Vacuum

The additional advantage of the built-in dust extraction is that all hard-to-clean and messy plaster dust is cleaned out as you work, minimizing the mess and clean-up time you will have to spend when the job is done.

  • Cleaner, safer air.
  • Drywall dust (or dust in general) can be harmful to inhale; when you are sanding large areas manually, all that hazardous dust is blown into the air where it could be inhaled.
  • By accumulating and storing the dust as you go, the drywall sander creates cleaner air that is safer for you and everyone in the room.

How to remove Gotele with Giraffe Sander ?

  • As it is known, gotele, comes from the French term “gouttelette” (drop), it is a painting technique for walls and ceilings that has a relief in the form of lumps or drops.
  • For application, the paint is generally spread thicker than normal and by providing such a rough surface, it can be applied in different ways.
  • For its elimination I recommend first to cover all the furniture and belongings of the room where you are going to remove the droplet. Place plastic on the floor, cover the sockets, window and door frames. In short, do not leave anything uncovered.
  • We will use paste so we proceed to mix it, this paste is a special putty for coatings, to leave the wall uniform, we knead it until it has the desired consistency.
  • The density of the putty allows us to cover drops of up to 4 mm, depending on the size of the drop, it may need several coats. We applied to the wall with the help of a spatula or trowel, between layers we must let it dry a few hours, when it is covered we must let it dry 24 hours.
  • After that time we can start sanding, with the giraffe sander is faster and easier for its characteristics of work on the wall. When we verify that the wall is smooth and soft, we have finished
