Focus on Ergonomic Design

Campbell Hausfeld Airless Sprayer

Campbell Hausfeld, a leader in hardware and power painting tools manufacturer, wanted to establish a unique design for a handheld airless paint sprayer in the marketplace. Bluemap Design’s product development team use extensive user testing, motion study, and observation during the research phase. We found that all handheld paint guns have a cantilevered structure, which leads to a lack of balance as well as wrist and forearm fatigue while painting.
To counteract this tendency, we designed the sprayer with an overall vertical structure with the handle placed between the motor at the top and the paint reservoir at the bottom. The result was an ergonomically conscious product that differentiated the Campbell Hausfeld Airless Sprayer from its competitors regarding look, feel and comfort.
