Hand tool manufacturer Wiha, is extending its product range for electricians with several new products and fully insulated set compilations.
The Wiha hacksaw electric, a new torque screwdriver with T-handle (5–14 Nm) and comprehensive tool sets with ratchet wrenches and single open-end spanners are set to bring users multiple advantages.
Each product excels in its own way with regards to handling, efficiency and accessibility. However, they all have one thing in common: no compromises have been made regarding safety and insulation.
The manufacturer states that these fresh additions to the existing Wiha range for electricians are based on even closer understanding of the professional segment’s true requirements.
The very first saw in the Wiha range, the hacksaw electric, is specially designed for use by electricians and electrically skilled persons. It is eminently suitable for sawing plastic or electrical installation pipes and plastic and metal cable ducts.
The fine-toothed saw blade ensures a clean cut. Extremely durable and long-lasting, this bi-metal saw blade ensures reductions in costs and can be quickly and easily changed by undoing the plastic screw.
The ergonomic handle is designed for both right- and left-handed use. These saws are suitable for work in environments exposed up to 1,000 V AC, thanks to each hacksaw undergoing individual item testing at 10,000 V AC.
The torque screwdriver with T-handle TorqueVario®-S T electric 5–14 Nm is an adjustable torque tool with a T-handle can cover a wide application range between 5 and 14 Nm. The T-handle with a ComfortGrip makes it significantly easier for users to hold the tool, transmitting high torques comfortably and effortlessly. The insulated, flexibly replaceable torque blades for T-handles are individually tested at 10,000 V AC and approved for tasks in environments exposed up to 1,000 V AC.
Lastly, Wiha now offers new fully insulated single open-end spanners and ratchet wrench sets in comprehensive 20-piece kits. Using these tools can reduce the risk of short circuits and guarantees user safety.
Permitted for use in environments exposed up to 1,000 V AC, these tools are individually tested at 10,000 V AC. The 15° position of jaws on the single open-end spanner ensures improved access to confined spaces. In the ratchet spanners, an integrated switching lever provides a flexible setting between left and right rotation. Low-lying screws can be easily reached thanks to suitable extension inserts in the ratchet.
