Protect your assets throughout winter with C.K tools storage systems.
On average, a professional tradesman will own over £6,000 worth of equipment. It is often said that a tradesman is only as good as his tools, and protecting these valuable assets is essential to ensure an optimum finished result on a job, especially in the face of wintry conditions.
With last December the wettest month ever on record, and recent torrential downpours bringing the UK to a standstill, durable tools and tool storage systems that can withstand adverse weather conditions will prove particularly valuable for tradesmen, providing solutions to working on cold, dark and wet building sites over the testing colder months.
Tools and tool storage products that allow for high performance, while providing maximum protection against the elements, are a must have for any tradesman, allowing them to focus on the task at hand rather than being concerned or hindered by equipment that proves inadequate. Although work must occasionally come to a halt in such conditions, choosing quality equipment can maximise productivity wherever work can continue.
Maintaining your tools
Maintaining your tools is a major factor that should be considered if a job is to be carried out efficiently, on time and without ﬂaws. Tool storage offering insufficient protection can lead to damage to its contents, leaving valuable tools and equipment at risk and causing a negative knock-on effect to the end result of a job.
Addressing the issue of tool storage, the C.K Magma Technician’s Tool Case Plus is 100% waterproof and crackproof, with a rubberised base designed specifically to keep tools protected and dry when placed on wet surfaces. The base is designed to never crack or split on impact, even in the cold. An internal document pocket, 50 tool pockets and holders and a durable polyester construction means all contents are kept neat, separate and dry.
With winter months comes dull weather and in turn, reduced visibility, especially when working outdoors during the earlier or later parts of the day. When focusing on intricate detail, good lighting is essential. The C.K tools range of Cree LED Head and Hand Torches will illuminate the darkest of crevices to allow work to continue, despite gloomy weather. These robust hand torches and head torch lamps are constructed from high-grade aluminium, which provides protection from drops of up to 1m, and more importantly they are all water and dirt resistant to IPX4, making them suitable for use in the typical British winter weather.
These hi-spec, feature-packed torches are the result of close collaboration with professional tradesmen, who highlighted a requirement for the superior build quality and advanced features of a specialist torch, without the hefty price tag usually associated with this level of quality.
Set to illuminate the industry, the C.K dextro VDE GLO Insulated Screwdrivers is the UK’s first glow in the dark, professional screwdriver set, featuring a unique phosphorescent handle that gives off a strong, highly visible glow when working in dark or low light conditions.
By exposing the screwdriver to natural light, the phosphorescent material handle will charge enough to provide 20 minutes glow. Exposure to stronger, artificial lights, such as a site lamp or head torch, will provide up to 30 minutes glow, making it easier than ever to find tools in the dark.
For easy identification the entire dextro range has the tip type marked on the end of each handle, and anti-roll ﬂats, which come in very useful when the screwdriver is put down on a sloped surface.
A premium quality, chrome vanadium steel blade provides exceptional strength and durability, whilst a precision machined tip ensures an exact screw fit and damage free screwdriving. And not forgetting an improved tip, which is capable of withstanding over 20Nm of torque, making it the toughest yet!
Within the construction industry, where efficiency and quality are demanded, compromising on the quality of tools and storage solutions is not recommended. The use of reliable products leads to a better end result, and allows the tradesmen to focus entirely on the task they are undertaking.
Durable tools and equipment are essential for tradesmen all year round, but in the winter, and especially when working outdoors, tools and tool storage solutions that can weather the British climate, are essential.
