Solid forged from one piece of steel.
Solid forged fully Insulated digging tools doubly protected by twin layers of polymer sheathing moulded over a rigid fibreglass core. The orange insulation used for the outer sheathing has been developed for its high voltage and abrasion resistance properties. If the outer orange protection abrades in use and the white inner sleeve becomes visible, the tool should be removed from use around live working conditions. A specially contoured collar prevents the user's hand slipping onto the steel blade. Each tool is flash tested to 10,000 Volts and printed with the BS8020 1,000 Volt logo and each tool is uniquely numbered and certified , thus ensuring total traceability and guaranteeing full conformity to live-cable working specifications.
