June 18, 2008 - PRLog -- The new range from the leading supplier of tools and maintenance products puts health and safety first with specially developed polymer insulation for protection against high voltages. After each tool is flash tested to 10,000 volts for 60 seconds, it promises to fully adhere to legislation for working near live conductor cables.  
Kevin Thompson, Product Manager at Buck & Hickman, said: “The tools have been individually tested to meet the BS8020:2002 specification and the design itself has been carefully considered to meet all aspects of safety. A white inner lining indicates whether the protective orange layer has been damaged making the tool unsafe near live cables and a specially contoured collar prevents the users’ hand slipping on to the steel blade. Each tool comes with its own unique test number which relates to a certificate which can then be sent to the customer if required. By providing such a simple solution, there is no reason why standard or unsuitable tools should be used in what can be a very dangerous environment.”
