New Habit Inc. has introduced a series of ergonomically designed, long-handled brushes aimed at safer, faster, more comfortable application of protective coatings.

 The ergonomically designed HO series of brushes comes in three widths.
The ergonomically designed HO series of brushes comes in three widths.

The HO 2-4-6 series use a “handshake” grip handle to keep hands away from chemical coatings and heat and electrical hazards. New Habit says the series is designed to “complement” federal safety standards.

3 Models

The series consists of:

HO 2” (LINR): Designed to improve productivity in protective coating applications, the HO 2” is made for maximum pick-up, so the first spread flows farther. With split-hair natural bristles, “feather” stroking is combined.

HO 4” (TRIMR): Designed to make flow trim feathering quick and easy, with more paint welled into each dip for fewer dip movements and even spreading. TRIMR does not conduct electric shocks or heat via the ferrule or through the node grip handle—a plus for painting around exterior wiring, New Habit says. Extended handles help protect skin from chemical burns.

HO 6” (CUVR): Designed with a node grip handle and handshake grip to speed application on tight, less-ventilated spots and irregular iron surfaces. The bristle head flow-coats more area with fewer dips and less stroking, according to the manufacturer.

Features and Design

All HO 2-4-6 brushes include:

• One-inch-thick bristle heads for maximum pickup;

• “Shape saver” storage in plastic hanging box;

• No-drop tether hang hole for bridge and platform work;

• Clear view line-of-sight angled bristle heads; and

• Non-slip, easy hold with or without gloves by palm-shaped node grip handles.

New Habit Inc. is based in Abington, MA.
