To maximize daily production, a mason must maintain a consistent, natural range of motion without wasted movements and the mortar needs to be highly workable. The GATORBACK’s unique design provides a smooth working surface that will not absorb water from mortar, but will extend the mortar’s board-life, ultimately increasing a mason’s production. The GATORBACK’s patented dished, lipless work area allows masons to get a trowel full of mortar without friction, snags or loss of material.
GATORBACKS ARE TOUGH
A good tool must be strong and built to last. GATORBACK mortarboards are injection molded from a hybrid blend of impact resistant materials to withstand the abuse of masonry crews. This mortarboard does not absorb water nor allow mortar to form a thick, permanent bond. The board can be kept clean with a hit of a hammer, a power hose or any chemical brick cleaner on the job. GATORBACKs are UV protected with a rubber component resin allowing for blows and flexibility in both summer and winter (above 30 degrees ambient temperatures).
GATORBACKS ARE PORTABLE & LIGHT
The handle on the GATORBACK is deliberately positioned to enable masons and tenders to carry their mortarboards at their sides, vertically, in an ergonomically correct method. Considering each board weighs just 5.5 pounds and is less than an inch thick, a mason or tender can effortlessly transport 8-10 GATORBACKs at one time (4-5 per hand) without back strain or stress. The handle is perfectly sized so as many as 80 to 100 boards can be slid on the forks of a lift and elevated to crews working on scaffolding. The handle also makes daily job site set-up and clean-up easy and quick.
GATORBACKS SAVE YOU MONEY
These tools will maximize labor and increase productivity. Without the need to add water to the mortar or pre-wet boards, labor time is cut not wasting time retempering, mixing or shaking up the mud. Important to the mason contractor, GATORBACK mortarboards and pans extend the workability of mortar as much as 30 minutes while maintain the color and consistency of the mix.
Results:Less waste of expensive mortar.
GATORBACKS REPLACE WOOD/METAL PRODUCTS ON HUNDREDS OF JOB SITES
If your people are your greatest asset, reward and motivate them with the best tools-especially tools that last for years. GATORBACK mortarboards are a good investment for your company and show your masonry team you care about them AND the quality of their work. If you think your masons and tenders are good now, give them GATORBACK boards and watch their daily production increase significantly!
GATORBACKS DON’T WARP, SPLINTER, RUST, DENT OR BREAK. SIMPLE TOOLS THAT ANY TRADESPERSON USING THEM WILL USE NOTHING ELSE…THEY JUST WORK!
