Origin

Guardair routinely gathers customer feedback and identified a need that was not being met in the market. Shops were searching for a more ergonomic, compact safety air gun that was quick and easy to use without compromising performance or user safety. 

Our engineering team developed two prototypes - one that was a palm-actuated grip design and one that was a contoured pistol grip design. We successfully introduced both designs to the market to satisfy the distinct grip preferences of automotive service technicians and mechanics.
