Insulated Adjustable Torque WrenchNetwork Rail Reference 0094/008030
Insulated tools primarily provide electrical protection to the operator, whilst at the same time can also prevent damage from electrical flash over to components.
- There are many manufacturers supplying insulated hand tools, but very few can also supply insulated torque wrenches.
- Unfortunately, the type of torque wrenches available is very limited and is restricted to those with square drives only with upper limits not generally exceeding 220Nm from any manufacturer.
- Network Rail identified a need for the supply of a rail specific insulated torque wrench with a capacity to apply a torque load of up to 475Nm.
