Press release date: April 3, 2014
Lincolnshire, IL — Klein Tools (http://www.kleintools.com), for professionals since 1857, announced the release of their full line of Electrician’s Insulated Tools with slimmer, sleeker profiles, certified by VDE and made in the USA.
New injection-molded grips feature Klein’s unique, three part insulation that includes a white underlayer that acts as a continuous sleeve around the steel handle and serves as a warning sign if the insulation is compromised. This also adds an extra layer of protection compared to other insulated tools on the market.
The multi-color, sleek design features small thumb guards for ease of handling and storage in the tool belt. This series offers the core tools an electrician needs to get the job done safely, including New England style side cutters, diagonal cutters, long-nose pliers, cable cutters, pump pliers and wire strippers.
Each tool is marked with the official 1000V symbol which signifies that the tool has been tested to 10,000V. Additionally, they are marked with the official VDE GS logo, signifying that each tool is certified by the VDE Testing and Certification Institute in Germany, one of the world’s most prominent independent testing organizations for electric and electronic products.
To conform to these standards, Klein’s insulated tools are put through an internal rigorous testing process to ensure that the tool can handle any situation it might come across in the field. Klein Tools controls the entire manufacturing process in the United States starting with a proprietary blend of steel forged by Klein, through a proprietary three stage heat treating and testing process.
“Safety is extremely important to electricians,” states David Klein, product manager at Klein Tools. “This line was developed to provide the tools electricians use every day in a sleek insulated design that are easy to use and store”.
