Made from premium hard steel wire with a galvanised finish, these staples by leading brand Rapesco provide optimum performance, accuracy and durability time after time. Each staple is manufactured to exacting standards for precise, clean fastening and unbeatable holding power, and will insert easily into your 50 page documents and tougher materials with their sharp chisel points. For a long-lasting, general use staple that will not let you down, always choose Rapesco.
Galvanised Steel Rapesco make sure to use the highest quality steel wire with a galvanised finish, meaning each staple has been coated with zinc for maximum durability. Galvanised steel staples are better able to cope with general corrosion, and will keep pages tightly together even when handled over time. For long-term applications or those travelling with documents, such durability is essential, and it is for these reasons that galvanised staples are the most common for all-round use.
Each staple also uses a chisel point, which is V shaped to enable easier insertion and ensure a strong hold.
Size and Type Guide The number 24 refers to the gauge of the wire, or the staple thickness. Considered a ‘hard wire’ staple, these staples are ideal for jobs that demand a more robust solution with stronger holding power, such as packaging, crafting with wood and plastic, furniture applications, and flooring amongst other uses. They will fit in a standard desktop stapler that accepts 24/8mm staples for use in offices and homes without any specialist equipment.
Finally, 8mm refers to the leg length, and should be chosen based on the thickness of the material you will be stapling. 8mm staples are able to strongly hold up to 50 paper sheets at one time, and for anything else, the general rule is the leg length should be around 3 times the thickness of the material being stapled.
Compatibility These staples are suitable with any stapler that accepts 24/8mm staples. This will be labelled clearly on the product or packaging.
