Ceiling Grid Punch, 0.53 mm

0 of 5 stars


The unique CGPR Punch makes a clean 3.2 mm hole in up to three layers of 0.53 mm ceiling grid.  The tool’s slim, but strong, “C” shaped steel frame ensures lightweight, one hand operation and allows easy access into tight corners.  It is ideal for punching through main tees and perimeter wall angle that is to be secured with blind rivets.  A generous throat opening allows full operation from the edge of both standard 25.4 and 12.7 mm grid profiles.  This durable punch features hardened all-steel construction with rust resistant nickel plate and black oxide finishes.  The long-life tool steel punch is also easily replaced on the job.    

The Malco CGPR Ceiling Grid Punch also features ergonomic RedLine Handle technology.  An Engineered handle opening compliments the natural power stroke of any user’s hand and maximizes the powerful 7:1 mechanical advantage of compound-leverage head to handle linkage.  Comfortable handle grip contours, a non-slip grip insert, spring handle actuation and a thumb-operated handle latch ensure a natural fit and feel for comfortable one hand operation anywhere on the job.
