SOUTHAMPTON, U.K. - March 17, 2017 - PRLog -- We imagine that most people in the marine finishing industries have heard the buzz surrounding the latest range of finishing boards from Flexisander. The much anticipated products are selling like hot cakes all over the world. Word is spreading about the innovative design and exceptional quality that is built in at every step of the design and manufacture process.

We have recently learned that that DTC is the first (and only) UK stockist to carry these brand new products. If you are in the market for a new finishing board, these are products you should strongly consider.

The Flexisander boards come in three varieties – sanding boards, dust extraction sanding boards (, and filling boards. Each has been custom designed to outperform their (very respectable) competition in every way. They have amassed quite a formidable reputation in the reasonably short time they have been on the market, and its easy to see why.

Sanding Boards
The wide range of sanding boards that Flexisander produce enable marine finishing professionals to have the precision and choice they require. From the smallest detailed corners, through to the largest flat open areas – Flexisander have a board that's the right size for the job.

Health issues that can arise from prolonged inhalation of airborne particulate are no laughing matter. On tool dust extraction systems are some of the most efficient and widely used in the world. They gather particulate right from the source before it has chance to permeate through the atmosphere of the workplace.

Several of Flexisander's sanding boards ( are available with dust extraction capabilities built into them. The quality airtight connector is compatible with a wide range of extraction systems and works flawlessly time and time again. The copious amounts of particulate that are produced while these boards are in use will continuously disappear before your eyes.

There are a wide range of sanding strips made by various different brands that are compatible with Flexisander's range of boards. The hook and loop system on the business end of the board is made from exceptionally high quality material.

It provides a super strong, super stable connection between the abrasive strip and the board. There is never any slipping, and never any messing around. When a strip needs to be changed you will be back up and running again in under a minute.

There are several capable sanding strips that can be utilized with these boards. One that Direct Tool Company (better known as DTC) claim is up to the task is the ST7 sanding strip from BEST. Application and removal are almost instant. The two products bond to one another as if they were welded together with the force of a thousand suns. The end result is a combination that works better, longer, and harder than the competition time and time again.

It's clear that Flexisander has put a large amount of time and effort into making their sanding boards as ergonomic as possible. The firm and stable grip on every single one of their products have been perfectly formed to feel natural in the hand. This dramatically reduces worker fatigue and therefore improves overall project speed and efficiency.

Filling Boards
The adjustable filling boards ( are available in a smaller range of lengths than the sanding boards. But they are still available in various sizes that are suitable for areas of different shapes and contours. DTC currently stock two of the four filling boards Flexisander produce.

The 560mm x 115mm board is perfectly adapted for use on small, intricate concave and convex surfaces where precision is required. The larger 1000mm x 115mm board is more suitable for larger projects where a large surface area needs to be worked on in the quickest most efficient manner possible.

When Flexisander's sanding boards and finishing boards are used together the results are simply astonishing. Flexisander claims that their entire ecosystem has been designed to work in perfect harmony, with sizable claims as to its efficacy. They claim that they can reduce the time required to complete a job and the amount of filler used by 50%.

The products are over engineered and exude excellence at every opportunity. They are the kind of products that you can't really fault in any way shape or form. They work around you, instead of you having to work around them. It's a quality Flexisander are known for, and it's a quality you will find these finishing boards too.

Simply put, these are products that you can rely on, they will stand the test of time. Flexisander has amassed a hard earned reputation for quality, their products are used in thousands of workshops all over the world each day.

This is why DTC has gone to such lengths to secure their position as Flexisander's UK stockist.
