Not only is the blade of the new ‘Slim’ 1,000V insulated screwdriver, manufactured by Bahco, 30% narrower than others, but its ergonomic handle is slimmer too.
With many 1,000v screwdrivers, the insulation often obstructs and prevents access to low-lying fasteners. Bahco’s ‘extra slim’ solution reduces the blade diameter by using integrated protective insulation.
The new screwdriver also enables a higher transfer of force with less effort, while its ergonomic features protect even the toughest hands from the risk of muscle strain or injury.
Safety has always been a top priority for Bahco. All the brand’s insulated screwdrivers are water bath tested at 10,000v to ensure safe working at 1,000v, fully meeting the IEC 60900 standard.
The quality of the ‘Slim’ screwdriver blade exceeds current standards relating to hardness by 130% and, in relation to torque strength, by 200%.
Several materials, each with individual properties, are used to make the ergonomic handle. A resistant plastic is used for the core, ensuring that the blade is held securely, even under high strain.
A softer material is used for the coloured zones, providing high frictional resistance and allowing the transfer of high forces, resulting in less screwdriving effort being required.
