eccelsa trowel

Art.1001 – Art. 1006

Thanks to the continuous process of innovation and search based on the study and the analysis of the applications of the tools and the ergonomic use Pavan has recently created ECCELSA , the new trowel to set a standard. ECCELSA is stronger, more manageable and innovative than other trowels and can be considered the trowel par excellence.
The first characteristic to emphasize is the innovative ergonomic handle that allows to a greater handiness and comfort of use of the tool.
The thickness of the tempered steel blade of the ECCELSA trowel ensures flexibility and resistance for normal use during work;load tests have shown extreme strength under all.
The ECCELSA trowel is available in several measures, to round tip or tip quadrant.

Also ECCELSA trowels are guaranteed from the “Ancora “ brand, that is synonymous of indisputed quality and attention to the requirements of the professional.

frattone ori di venezia



The Pavan brand, ever ready to meet the needs of the most demanding professionals, now presents the trowel art. 844- “Gli ori di Venezia” range – the only tool specifically designed for the application of Venetian stucco and of lime putty in the finishing stages.
Extreme lightness and the traditional strength merge in a single and innovative utensil which thanks to the treatment of the profile of the blade makes it possible to achieve a perfect polish and excellent quality in the finished work.

The exclusive and innovative ergonomic grip patented ECCELSA PLUS, by increasing the grip section for the fingers prevents the hand from turning round the grip, thus enabling greater force to be applied to the utensil during use.

In addition the extension of the rubber coating ensures greater comfort throughout the various phases of use.
The joining of the blade to the support is checked at each processing phase. Severe tests of resistance to bending ensure the sturdiness and long duration of the tool.
Once again the “Ancòra” brand by Pavan offers a specially designed tool to specifically meet the requirements of the professional and help him get the best results in his work.
