PRLog - March 30, 2012 - CHILWORTH, U.K. -- Unisto, one of the world’s leading providers of high performance security seals, has expanded its market-leading range of transport security solutions with the introduction of a new battery powered hydraulic bolt cutter kit. Designed for the safe and rapid removal of heavy duty bolt and cable security seals, it meets the needs of the handling and distribution industry in a wide range of cross border and domestic operations. It will also be particularly beneficial to Police and Border Agency personnel who are often required to remove high security seals from suspect trailers and containers in transit.
New Battery-Powered Bolt Cutter Kit From Unisto
Unisto’s new battery powered hydraulic bolt cutter will remove barrier seals that have solid steel bolts and bushes with a tensile strength of greater than 20 kN. It provides 35kN (approx. 3 tonnes) of cutting force at the blade enabling a maximum 12mm steel bolt to be removed in less than 10 seconds. This eliminates the need to use long handled bolt croppers, which are known to cause musculoskeletal injury due to the physical power required to cut through the steel bolts. The battery is rechargeable and provides about 200 cuts on a single charge.
According to Donald Miller, Unisto’s UK Sales and Marketing Director: “This new battery-powered bolt and cable seal cutter kit meets all health and safety requirements and is easy to operate regardless of physique and gender. It will speed up the unloading process, delivering significant and productivity gains and boosting staff morale, wherever it is used.”
The kit includes a robust carry case which contains a pair of Greenlee scissor action cable cutters for the fast and efficient removal of cable seals, safety glasses and gloves. A spare battery and mains charger is also provided.
