Insulated gloves

Insulated gloves

Insulated gloves are ideal for working in a condition that involves high voltage or heat. They are made of insulating materials, like latex or nylon. They are manufactured to carry out well defined industrial, electrical, surgical, and chemical handling purposes. Insulate gloves are one of the most innovative tools for lineman work, electrical contractor, field service work, and even high-voltage machine operations. When purchasing one, ensure that they have been manufactured complying required guidelines for electrical safety in the workplace.

Wiring connectors

Wiring connectors

Wiring connectors are one of the greatest innovations in electrical equipment. Built with cage clamp technique, screwless connectors enable you to make a secured connection without any tapes and so save your home or workplace from short circuit. In addition, this valuable tool reduces wiring time by 75% as compared to manual wiring. Wiring connectors require no special tools and can fit perfectly in tight spaces as well as can be used in all types of junction boxes.

Insulated mats

Insulated mats

Electrically insulated mats serve as an obstacle to electrical fluctuations. They are usually prepared from proven raw material and cutting edge technology to comply with industry standards. Insulated matting offers reliable protection against the potential risk of electric shocks. The insulated carpet is often recommended for installation around transformers and other areas where the threat of electrical shocks is considerable high.

Insulated ladders

Insulated ladders

An insulated ladder is a valuable tool that can be used in the family, factory, electric industry, housing management, and even fire protection. The ladder is manufactured from a premium quality insulating material, like fiberglass to make it durable. A safe and secure tool, the ladder can typically withstand voltage spikes up to 30,000 volts.

Electrical earthing clamp

Electrical earthing clamp

Earthing clamp is used for installation on bare conductors. This equipment is usually made of bronze, gunmetal, high strength copper alloy to achieve strong resistant to corrosion. Earthing clamp comes in a wide variety and types, for example, a C-type clamp comes with a hexagonal end-fitting and circumferential braking system to prevent the clamp from turning under the weight of the cable.

High voltage detector

High voltage detector

Voltage detectors, also know live line detectors sense high voltage if brought near live circuits. They are an important tool for electrical engineers, technicians working in switchyards, or any person working in high voltage equipment and circuit breakers. Voltage detectors are available in various voltage ranges, like 420, 510KV, etc.

Be it the workplace, home, or industry, these innovative tools help electricians to control hazards. Every person, involved in electrical work, must ensure protection and safety in all kind of electrical testing, repair work, installation, and maintenance.
