A good painter is only as good as their tools. Making sure equipment is clean and in good order is vital for anyone painting on a frequent basis. There are many brands out there which provide brush stores and boxes to help keep brushes looking as good as new; Brush Mate being one of those top brands we have in stock at The Paint Shed.
Whether you’re looking for a small wet brush store that can keep a handful of brushes tidy at home, or need a storage box which can let you take a brush right out without needing to clean or prep, some of the Brush Mate products we have in stock may be what you need.
Shop our current range of Brush Mate products and see if their storage solutions are ideal for your situation.
What is Brush Mate?
Brush Mate is a brand known primarily for paint brush storage solutions. For most people, especially those painting once in a blue moon at home, paint brushes will be something you use once or twice before cleaning in the sink and tidying away for a few years. Professional painters and those in the trades rely on good quality brushes which can last for years. That requires cleaning and storage which doesn’t impact product lifespan.
Longevity is exactly what Brush Mate helps with. Their Trade 20 box was, and in most regards still is, a pioneering brush care product. This box, and the smaller Trade 4, both help keep brushes clean and tidied away for use. If you’re someone who paints every day, the Brush Mate Trade 20 is ideal, while those looking for a box to keep at home may prefer the Brush Mate Trade 4+.
Why Brush Mate?
Cleanliness is next to godliness and a tradesperson wants their tools to look and perform as best as possible. That’s why Brush Mate boxes matter. A decorate can pop a brush in without having to worry about:
- The ferrule rusting
- Bristles hardening and snapping off
- Cleaning a brush before using it
Brush Mate also has the unique advantage of not needing to clean a brush after use. With the brushes sitting in the box while vapour works away, someone can come back to their brushes the next day and find they’re ready to get doing once again.
There’s also the benefit of having a low-maintenance storage solution at hand. Someone using Brush Mate should only expect to service their box once a year, with the Brush Mate Trade 20 Service Pack making it a doddle.
