TriCut electric installation pliers from Wiha – three functions combined in one hand tool.

 "Have you already finished?" Electricians love hearing this question, and customers love posing it! Time is money, and achieving high-quality, professional results safely and simply is the ideal scenario. Hand-tool manufacturer Wiha Werkzeuge offers just that with its innovative TriCut pliers. These VDE-tested installation pliers make cable processing significantly simpler, safer and more efficient, thanks to their ergonomic, cutting, stripping, and skinning functions.

The three main steps for processing cable - cutting the cable to length, exposing the wires, and skinning the individual conductors - usually require three separate tools: diagonal cutters, a cable stripper, and stripping pliers. The TriCut combines all three functions, eliminating the need for multiple pliers, which is a compelling reason to use them, especially for frequent work up ladders or near live parts.

TriCut electric installation pliers from Wiha

 

In narrow spaces, for distribution or junction boxes, the TriCut comes into its own, due to its specially angled head, which allows for ergonomic and energy-saving stripping and skinning lengthwise. Due to the manufacturer's high quality standards and extremely robust processing and production, the TriCut promises a long lifespan and will make light work of hard wires, cables and even chains. Saving space and weight on belts, in bags, and in toolboxes, it is available in a VDE version tested individually at 10,000v AC and approved for use up to 1,000v AC, as well as in a classic design without protective insulation.

QUADSAW: The Tool That Drills Square Holes

London-based start-up creates world’s first tool that

can drill a perfect square hole into a wall!

For years, electricians have struggled with rulers, pencils and handsaws to cut holes in walls for electrical sockets and other boxes. This method lacks accuracy, creates mess, and can take over five minutes to cut a single hole (including ‘making good’).

QUADSAW solves this problem thanks to its unique four-blade technology, which enables users to cut square holes in seconds, with minimal dust and absolute precision.

No marking up or measuring is required when using the QUADSAW as it has built-in spirit levels and a height gauge for ease of use. It is the ideal addition to any toolbox for both professionals and DIY users.The QUADSAW is compatible with power drills and most battery drills.

With 250,000 electricians* in the UK cutting around three holes each working day, there are almost 200 million square holes cut every year. QUADSAW could save 16 million hours of labour and over £320 million per annum** in the UK alone, and much more globally.

 “This is the first product in the world that can truly drill a square hole,” said QUADSAW designer Michael Sebhatu, co-founder of London-based start-up Genius IP. “The uniqueness of it is not just that it cuts the hole perfectly, but that it does so with total ease and minimal mess, making life easier for anyone who is using it.”

Ean Brown, director and co-founder of Genius IP, added: “When I first saw the QUADSAW in action, I knew it was a winner. It cuts a perfect square hole and it means there’s no ‘making good’, so when you’ve finished there is no returning to the building site to plaster or fix things up. The amount of time and money that this tool can save is remarkable.”

QUADSAW is available to pre-order now, priced at £199 (inc VAT), from https://quadsaw.com/

New Lighting Season, New Products! From the Creators of AP Pro Series

New Lighting Season, New Products! From the Creators of AP Pro Series

Active Products, creators of the best-selling AP Pro Series range of high performance torches are pleased to bring to market this autumn five new and improved products to expand their AP Pro Series Professional torch range coinciding with the start of the 2016 lighting season.

Exciting new Additions to the AP Pro Series Range

Brand new AP ProSeries products include;

  • 270 Lumens COB LED + 100 Lumens LED Rechargeable Inspection Lamp & Torch
  • 250 Lumens Cree LED Battery Spotlight

Upgrades to the existing range;

  • 150 Lumens High Performance Head Torch, upgraded from 100 lumens.
  • 300 Lumens High Performance 2AA Aluminium Torch from 125 lumens.
  • 430 Lumens High Performance Torch, upgraded from 210 lumens.

Active Products was established in 2003 and have established a solid reputation supplying affordable, high quality torch products to the DIY, wholesale and Retail sectors.  Their range of torches extend from their budget range of great value AP torches to their high end range of Cree LED professional torches; the AP Pro Series, now an ever popular choice for retailers looking to offer a premium torch brand that strikes the balance of achieving high quality at an affordable price point. 

All AP Pro Series torch products feature the latest CREE LED technology and a minimum five-year guarantee on Flashlights and 3-year guarantee on Rechargeable Spotlights which are packed full of nifty features that make the premium torch range appeal widely across trade professionals, emergency services, commercial use and every-day DIYers who are looking for powerful performance and longevity from their torch.

LED and CREE Explained

It’s now quite commonplace to see torches with traditional LED, with many featuring multiple LED’s to enhance performance. However products featuring the ‘CREE’ LED logo see the power source coming from a small micro-chip rather than bulb and brings with it outstanding energy efficiency, brilliantly intense, bright white light, offering a truly remarkable lifespan of the chip when compared to a normal incandescent bulb.  With CREE LED’s efficiency levels, the torch products built with CREE technology achieve brighter light for a much longer period of time,  meaning the torch will use smaller and few batteries than a standard torch, with CREE LED lifespans estimated to be around 100,000 hours.

Exceptional Brightness at the Click of a Button

New for 2016, the 250 Lumens Spotlight packs a real punch.

With its unique handle for precise torch light positioning, the 250 lumens Spotlight will light up the darkest corners with its brilliant bright white light.  The incredible lighting range of 300 metres and up to 100 hours of battery life, the 250 Lumens spotlight will suit the toughest demands from a wide range of users.

Packed full of fantastic features, this handy spotlight is floatable and submersible and water resistant (IP x 7), perfect for boat owners and offers a tough, high quality rubberised finish users have come to expect from the AP Pro Series professional range.

The 3 modes of operation include high, low and flashing useful to emergency situations and the safety lock prevents unwanted on/off activation. 

For tradesmen, DIYers and Campers looking for hands-free convenience, the durable tilt adjustable stand will enable the light to be sat sturdily on surfaces to position the beam where needed for hands-free operation.

Built with XP-G2 CREE White Technology and coming with a 5-year guarantee, this latest addition to the AP Pro Series is a powerful, lightweight spotlight delivering exceptional performance in an innovative new design at an affordable price. RRP £39.99

The Multi-Purpose Inspection Lamp & Torch in One

New for 2016, Inspection Lamp and Torch, no tool box should be without one!

For those people looking for an ultra-bright inspection lamp with a handy built in torch the search is over. The latest addition to Active Products AP Pro Series range sees the creation of the dual purpose Inspection Lamp and Torch, a versatile new lighting solution featuring two high performance lighting options within one unit, allowing users to toggle easily between the 270 lumens inspection lamp, featuring powerful COB (Chip on Board) LED technology and 100 lumens CREE LED torch light.

The rechargeable unit with handy USB connection and 1.5m USB cable is simply packed full of useful features, making it suitable for mechanics, plumbers, electricians and the building trade and a general great all-rounder torch for campers or homeowners to keep on hand for emergency use.  The 30m beam projection on the inspection light provides fantastic coverage for mechanics working with cars and the 2 built in swivel hooks in the rear body, plus three built in magnets is designed for hassle free hands free operation.

Putting Innovation to the test with C.K Magma

Putting Innovation to the test with C.K Magma

Carl Kammerling International has enhanced its already popular C.K Magma range of premium tool storage with the new C.K Magma Test Equipment Case - an industry first, allowing electricians to carry diagnostic testing equipment and a selection of essential tools in one handy case.

Historically, storage and transportation cases for test meters did not accommodate the additional toolkit also necessary for technicians to carry out diagnostic and final certification testing. Until now, there has been no universal solution on the market for storing and transporting both test meters and toolkits.

After conducting extensive research into how electricians store and transport test equipment, Carl Kammerling International noticed this gap in the market, developing the C.K Magma Test Equipment Case as a convenient solution to the problem. The new product is the first of its kind to feature made-to-measure storage for both a test meter and toolkit, removing the inconvenience of having to transport them separately.

The case, with an RRP of £59.57, also offers a more lightweight alternative to carrying equipment compared to the heavier plastic cases often provided by the equipment manufacturers.

Featuring rubber feet and adjustable padded compartments, the C.K Magma Test Equipment Case provides durable, safe storage for testing equipment, plus a separate top compartment for storing a range of tools and accessories. 27 easily accessible pockets, including a handy business card and documentation holder, mean technicians can now carry all the necessary tools and documents for diagnostic testing without the need for any separate boxes, cases or bags.

Recognising the need to keep such expensive equipment safe and secure, C.K Magma has fitted a lockable zip system to the case.

With comfort as well as convenience and security in mind, a carry handle and padded shoulder strap have also been added to provide maximum comfort during transportation and use. The shoulder strap allows technicians to carry out equipment testing whilst carrying the case, making the process much more efficient.

Charles Whitfield, Product Development Manager at C.K Magma says: “We work closely with a dedicated group of professional tradesmen to create products that meet their working needs. Feedback revealed a need for a single solution to transport a diagnostic testing kit and a small selection of essential tools, without having to carry their full toolkit. The new C.K Magma Test Equipment Case is a direct result of this process and has been well received by electricians.”

A product demonstration video is available to download via YouTube and Vimeo. Watch out for Freebie Friday competitions on Facebook andTwitter.

NEW UNIVERSAL STARLOCK ACCESSORIES FROM FEIN

Inventor of the oscillating multi-tool and co-developer of the revolutionary new Starlock accessory mounting system FEIN has released three new universally fitting accessories with excellent blade life and cutting performance.

With all the advantages of the FEIN’s German manufactured top selling accessories, the three new bi-metal blades will fit any oscillating multi tool (OMT) with the 12-point mounting system, as well as fitting new machines accepting the Starlock system. The new E-Cut Universal long-life saw blades are available in the following sizes: 50mm x 50mm bi-metal wood blade (wood and nail tolerant), 55mm x 28mm (metal / wood – hacksaw pattern) and 55mm x 44mm (metal / wood – hacksaw pattern).

Made with a stainless steel holder for even greater precision, durability, reduced noise levels and vibration, the wood and nails blade is perfect for cutting all wood, plasterboard, plastic materials and is not affected by mild steel nails up to 4mm in diameter. Equally, the metal / wood blades are ideal for cutting sheet metal up to 2mm, aluminium profiles, copper pipes, all wood, plasterboard and plastics.

Based on the top three selling blades from the pre-Starlock FEIN range, these new accessories have been slightly shortened and narrowed to make them suitable for lower powered machines with the 12-point mounting system. With these three new additions, the total range of Starlock accessories available for the wider OMT market numbers 28. What’s more, because of their superior manufacturing, Starlock accessories can actually improve the performance of the machines they are attached to, offering faster work progress and extra durability. When they are combined with a Starlock machine, the three-dimensional fit provides a more secure connection and increased power transmission from machine to accessory.

Andy Mills, National Sales Manager at FEIN, commented: “The Starlock accessory mounting system is the fastest there is, taking less than three seconds to change a blade, and offers complete power transfer between machine and accessory. The great thing about these new Universal blades is that they offer all the benefits of the superior Starlock accessories to OMT users who don’t have a Starlock machine yet. So while they can’t enjoy the quick blade change, they can at least take advantage of the improved performance and durability of our accessories.”

Available from dealers, prices for FEIN Starlock E-Cut accessories can be bought for as little as £4.99 (excluding VAT). For more information or to find your nearest dealer please visit www.fein-uk.co.uk

New ZIPP pencil grinder reduces vibration risks

Master Abrasives is pleased to announce the introduction of the new ZIPP Air Tools micro die grinder range to the UK, also known as pencil grinders.

The new ZIPP pencil grinders prove to have extremely low vibration results in real use test conditions, offering an affordable solution to companies trying to reduce the risk of Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) in the workplace.

“We carried out a series of Hand Arm Vibration tests with the ZPD212 and two of the market leading pencil grinders from different brands for a true comparison." Andy Wright, National Sales Manager, explains, “The test results showed that the ZIPP pencil grinder had a lower vibration magnitude than the other two tools, proving that as well as getting value for money customers can benefit from low HAV levels when using the quality ZIPP tool range.”

The current list price of the ZIPP pencil grinder ZPD212 is £96.00, significantly lower than some alternative brands models in the market. It comes with the standard ZIPP warranty which is valid for a year after purchase (full terms online). By selecting low-vibration tools from the ZIPP range, companies can save costs and find an affordable solution for reducing the risk of HAVS in the workplace.

ABUS Presents Innovation & Stability at Lockex

ABUS used the recent Lockex Exhibition at the Ricoh Arena to launch the following ranges, representing innovation and value across its mechanical and electronic security ranges. The ABUS Smartvest alarm and smart home system is a timely introduction, integrating its international alarm package into ABUS’ now well-developed CCTV security programme. The Smartvest alarm system offers UK security distributors a ‘smart’ alarm kit, that out of the box via an easily available app, make this alarm system safe, secure, and ultra-convenient. The Smartvest alarm system can be integrated with ABUS CCTV cameras. The Lockex show generated keen interest in the Smartvest range due to its functionality and attractive net pricing. ABUS previewed at Lockex the wApploxx range of ‘mechatronic’ access control. The wApploxx system allows both domestic or commercial sites to have wireless and keyless entry for various people at various times. Programming of the system is performed easily via the app, as is opening for unexpected visitors remotely by authorised personnel. Fully launched in the UK in November, Lockex proved to be an ideal preview of this innovative range to the security market, with many positive leads. Lockex also proved a great launch platform for a new range of ABUS BSI* cylinders, made under patent at the ABUS Pfaffenhain German factory. This new BSI* range is available at very attractive RRPs (35/35 double at £33) on a standard ABUS patented house section. Alternatively, ABUS customers with their own existing sections on either systems ABUS Z14 or Y14 can now have their unique section made to BSI* specification. ABUS are confident the range combining both BSI rated security with a high specification cylinder at a reduced price to fulfil consumer demand. In addition to these welcome new introductions at Lockex, the show also gave ABUS the opportunity to confirm to the trade, that unlike many other post Brexit price increases, ABUS are maintaining 2016 RRPs in place till April 2017. Many visitors to the ABUS stand, having already received so many supplier increases, very much appreciated this ABUS Group support in ensuring ABUS UK £ RRP stability.

The lights are cost effective to run: with their low power consumption 42W; a 4kVA power supply will easily power 50 units. Fundamentally, fewer DL/DC4000s are required to light up the same sized space versus a fluorescent alternative, offering valuable cost savings.

The units are lightweight but durable, built to withstand the harshness of onsite use. The end caps are over moulded for added protection and the units are vented for ultimate heat control.

Additionally the lights are versatile. The DC4000 features a sturdy steel tripod leg offering a floor light solution, however can be removed easily using the Hex key supplied. This allows both lights to be suspended from ceilings or attached to scaffolding and masts.

The Defender DC4000/ DL4000 LED Light range is available to buy now.

MASTER XL 61 – professional infrared oil heater in high demand

In a new autumn/winter season, Master Climate Solutions have introduced an updated version of the 17 kW infrared oil heater: Master XL 61. In response to market needs, some improvements have been made to provide better performance and higher work comfort.

XL 61 completes the 43 kW models offer well-known across Europe for many years. It is made in Italy from the highest quality components. The most important update from the user point of view is a new socket for remote thermostat: analog or digital which greatly expands the application possibilities. There are also some modifications in air flow system and ignition transformer which now enables 100% runtime.

Infrared oil heaters have had a wide appeal to many end-users since their introduction, becoming one of the most effective and efficient forms of heating. Owing to their method of operation, these heaters do not warm the air, but radiate heat towards the target area or object, so that 100% of the heat produced is used effectively, nothing wasted. The heat is radiated rather than blown so no dust is sucked into the heater and blown into the atmosphere.

Spot heating is used extensively in the manufacture, construction, logistics and farming industries. Master XL 61 is a response to the large market demand that is expanding every year.
