Secure-grip hand tools rated to 1,000 volts AC
Offered individually or in multi-piece sets, these insulated hand tools meet ASTM F1505-01 and IEC 60 900 standards, and comply with OSHA 1910.335 regulations as well as NFPA 70E standards. Each tool is UL- and VDE-listed, and certified to 1,000 volts AC. Cutters and pliers feature double-insulated Santoprene handles designed to achieve a more secure, comfortable grip. Insulated screwdrivers and nut drivers feature an ergonomic-cushioned grip designed to deliver 40% more torque than comparable products. An orange outer-surface handle resists oil, perspiration, water and chemicals, while the permanently bonded, bright yellow, inner-surface handle acts as an “at a glance” safety monitor. If the outer orange coating reveals any of the inner yellow, the user knows it is time to replace the tool. In addition, the cutters and pliers feature large finger stops designed to guard against accidental contact with exposed metal tool parts.
