“The Wiha brand has the largest range of different slim blades available, ensuring there’s one suitable for all situations,” says Hyde Brand Manager, Paul Moore.
When time is money,working efficiently is key to keeping costs to a minimum, keeping customers happy and keeping your work diary from getting out of control. Working smartly doesn’t just mean that labour times are kept in check though, doing so also gives a professional impression to your clients, making the purchase of ‘smart’ tools a worthwhile investment all round.
Next time you open your tool bag, have a count up of how many tools you have in it and ask yourself how often they all get used. Most of us, if we’re honest, carry around a huge amount of kit that does little more than slow our working day down, whether because the tools we really need are so difficult to find among the clutter or simply because the tool bag becomes next to impossible to carry.
“Forget the latest smartphone or tablet, working smarter for electricians starts with simple yet ingenious solutions such as screwdrivers with interchangeable blades. Such solutions can be found with the Wiha family of products, which includes blades that can be used across all three screwdrivers in the range.”
Forget the latest smartphone or tablet, working smarter for electricians starts with simple yet ingenious solutions such as screwdrivers with interchangeable blades. Such solutions can be found with the Wiha family of products, which includes blades that can be used across all three screwdrivers in the range. The Liftup Electric Magazine Bit Holder holds six common VDE certiﬁed slimBits in one unit, ensuring the right screwdriver is always to hand. The holder’s fanned-out presentation makes removing and re-inserting individual bits a breeze, while its internal metal construction makes it extremely durable and hard-wearing. All of the bits, plus the magazine holder itself, are individually VDE-GS certiﬁed to ensure maximum safety when carrying out electrical work. Each of the six bits, which includes one PH1, one PH2 and one slotted/PZ2 bit, feature Wiha’s slimBit technology, with 33% narrower blades than standard insulated screwdrivers. Not only does this give unhindered access to low lying screws, enabling electricians to enjoy a greater level of efficiency on all jobs, the Wiha brand has the largest range of different slim blades available, ensuring there’s one suitable for all situations.
Talk the torque
Getting the torque spot on is, of course, an important element of an electrician’s job, and this is taken care of in a similar way, with the Wiha SLIMTorque VDE torque screwdriver. Again, this has ﬁve interchangeable blades, which can be quickly and easily switched as required. These offer a fully variable, fully insulated torque driver solution which meets this 1000V AC guarantee and the VDE 10KV piece test, meaning that all the components are fully insulated and safe.
Last but by no means least, the Wiha family of interchangeable blades is completed with the slimVario VDE screwdriver. With all the bits you need being simple to change over mid-job, this handy tool is a compact solution that is just as big on comfort, safety and convenience.
Opting for multi-functional tools such as these is an effective way of speeding things up, reducing stress and generally making an electrician’s working life that bit easier.
