Honeywell Safety Products
announces the release of a new range of insulated tools from Salisbury.
With a non-magnetic feature, the tools are also able to be used on special machinery with powerful magnets, such as MRI machines, military demining and explosives.
The insulating material that coats the tools is designed to be high-impact resistant and flame-retardant and has colour coded layers that allow for easy safety inspection.
Manufactured from aluminium-bronze and copper-beryllium alloys, the new range includes wrenches, pliers, cutters, screwdrivers, sockets and tool kits.
The safety tools have been drop-forged and maintain corrosion-resistance, while the insulated tools are designed to eliminate the risk of hazards caused by sparks in areas where explosive atmospheres may be present.
The range of tools are rated for exposure up to 1000 VAC and dielectrically tested at 10,000 VAC and meet and exceed ASTM 1505-07 and IEC 900 standards and are necessary for compliance with OSHA 1910.333 (c)(2) and NFPA, as well as meet CSA-2462 standards.
