Unless you install radiant floor heating, you probably won’t need Malco’s foamboard stapler. It’s a stapler that allows you to fasten PEX tubing to an insulating foam board layer without getting on your knees or even bending over.
The stapler uses a leaf spring that automatically adjusts to the staple size, whether it’s 1-1/2″ or 2-1/2″ staples for 1″ and 2″ foamboard, respectively. The aluminum magazine holds multiple plastic welded strips of 25 staples and the fastening mechanism can cleanly separate the welds without jamming or deforming the staple. To deliver a staple, you just push down on the D-grip handle. The stapler’s concave head holds the PEX in place while you staple it.
Pricing starts around $230 for the stapler and pricing for the staples starts around $30 for a 300-pack.
