STOP WASTING TIME AND MORTAR! Give your masons GATORBACK Mortarboards and they’ll both make you money all day!

Grab a GATORBACK! Pound for pound it’s the lightest, most durable mortarboard that won’t splinter or chip and lasts 3-5 times longer than wood boards.

Tried and True
What do the masons say
WILL THEY INCREASE OUR EFFICIENCY?
“One thing is for sure, the mud doesn’t set up nearly as fast, and when you don’t have time to waste when tempering mortar, it’s a big advantage. All the guys like them real well. The bottom line is that they DEFINITELY save labor!”
HOW WILL GATORBACK BOARDS INCREASE OUR PRODUCTIVITY?
“Because the water stays on the board and the mud stays tempered longer and more consistent, common sense tells you that increased productivity will come. One thing is for sure; the tenders don’t have to work their asses off shaking up the mud. I’m pretty sure we will be getting more.”
WILL THEY HOLD UP OVER TIME?
“When our Gatorbacks arrived at the site, some of the masons said, ‘they look great, but won’t hold up!’ So I grabbed one and hit it about 15 times as hard as I could with my 12 oz brick hammer. Now I’m 6’4″ and weigh 235, and after giving it all I had, I looked at the board and all I could see was a little nick on the surface.that proved to us they’ll last!”
HOW DO I JUSTIFY THE COST OF GATORBACKS?
“The Gatorback boards save us money not only due to the life of the board in relation to cost, but also in labor savings. Years ago we used both wood boards and metal boards in the past but they simply don’t compare to Gatorbacks. They’re lighter, last a lot longer, and all of our masons say they keep the mortar more workable and consistent in the warm weather.”
WHAT ABOUT MORTAR WORKABILITY & BOARDLIFE?
“It gets extremely hot here in Phoenix, but I can honestly say we’re getting at least 20 additional minutes of boardlife out of our mortar, which is a lot longer boardlife than the steel boards I used before.it just stays fresh longer. We’re all very impressed with them…they’re the way to go!”
