Insulated tools and electrical safety equipment are essential when working in an energised environment. All of our tools are ergonomic and hard wearing, but by far the most important aspect is that they keep you safe.
When searching for the best insulated tools, there are some essential criteria that must be met.
Firstly, the tools must have the official international 1000V rating symbol. All of the tools produced at Boddingtons Electrical have this mark, meaning they have been rigorously tested up to 10,000 volts, thus conforming to the current IEC standards.
This International Electrotechnical Commission’s standards includes dimensions and covers test procedures to guarantee that the tools will physically protect you from high voltages. The standard is also laser printed on all of our tools, so you know they have met all of the criteria set for a safe, efficient tool and this information will remain on the tool for its lifetime.
Meeting these standards is essential, and something we take extremely seriously.
At Boddingtons Electrical, our customer’s safety is paramount. However, this is just one aspect of ensuring our tools are safe for your use. Another vital element is taking care of the tools once you have them!
Proper use and regular maintenance is key to ensuring your tools will effectively protect you from electrical injury. Whenever you take or issue your tools out for use, visually inspect them for any deterioration in the insulation or in the metal of the tool cracks, because although our products are highly durable, if the insulation layer is damaged, it may well be time for a proper inspection of the tool or in extreme cases, replacement.
Always ensure that there is no moisture or contaminants on the tools’ surfaces as these may be able to conduct electrical current. When your Boddingtons Electrical Tools do need a clean, stick to mild, non-corrosive cleaners, as others could damage the multi-layer insulation. Storage of your equipment is also essential in their maintenance: store them in clean, dry areas away from any excess changes in temperature, to avoid any unnecessary damage.
