Black & Decker makes painting easier with RapidRoller

TOWSON, Md. — Black & Decker has announced the availability of its RapidRoller paint roller. According to the company, the RapidRoller provides a convenient, easy-to-use solution for painting projects, and helps consumers complete those projects up to two times faster than with traditional rollers.

RapidRoller's features include a handle that holds and dispenses paint and an exclusive three-position pivoting roller frame that allows users to paint up to the edge, in tough-to-reach corners and narrow locations like hallways, closets and bathrooms.

To keep the work area clean while the user is taking a break or working on cutting in, Black & Decker designed an exclusive kickstand for the RapidRoller. Consumers no longer have to set the roller in a tray of paint, balance it on a paint can or against a wall when taking a break.

“Painting has been among the most popular DIY projects for decades. Black & Decker is proud to provide a painting solution that solves common user frustrations,” said Steve Wiezorek, group product manager at Black & Decker. “The RapidRoller Paint Roller was designed with the customer in mind and helps speed up painting projects, eliminate trips to the paint tray and much more.”

The Black & Decker RapidRoller Paint Roller will be available for $34.99 in the spring of 2011 and will come with a two-year warranty.
