Salisbury insulated tool range

Tuesday, 05 June, 2012 | Supplied by: Honeywell Industrial Safety

The non-sparking and non-magnetic insulated tools and tool kits from Salisbury include wrenches, pliers, cutters, screwdrivers, sockets and tool kits, which can be used within environments where hazardous, flammable or combustible vapours, liquids, dusts or residues may be present.

Manufactured from special aluminium-bronze and copper-beryllium alloys, the new range is designed to eliminate the risk of sparks at work sites where explosive atmospheres may be present. The new tools use the same high-impact resistant insulating material as the traditional line of insulated hand tools, which means that the material is flame-retardant.

With colour-coded layers - a blue top layer and yellow under layer, the insulation also allows for easy safety inspection. If the yellow under layer is showing, the insulation may have worn and should be considered for replacement and removed from service, adding to the tools’ overall safety.

The safety tools have been drop-forged and are corrosion-resistant, making them suitable for use in shipyards, laboratories and paper and pulp mills, as well as in the pharmaceutical, food product manufacturing, wine industries, mining and more. 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. Rated for exposure up to 1000 VAC and dielectrically tested at 10,000 VAC, the Salisbury Non-Sparking Safety Tools are suitable for use in industries where non-sparking safety tools are required.

The tools also 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 meeting CSA-2462 standards.
