Products and programmes
Cotter key tools: the tapered jaws reach in to remove the self spreader in most cotter keys. The pry bar end can be used to lever out cotter keys, gaskets, etc.
Ratcheting open-end wrenches: the jaw design enables a ratcheting action, which is ideal in situations where a socket cannot be used.
Diesel locomotive tools: wrenches, sockets and custom-made tools for servicing and repairing freightliner and other heavy diesels.
Track and signal maintenance kits: containing a selection of wrenches used in maintaining points and signal equipment, our kits are available in both insulated and non-insulated versions.
Insulated tools: we offer a comprehensive range of insulated tools and composite non-conductive tools, which are extremely strong yet very lightweight.
Special tools: produced for many rail contractors, including Siemens, Bombardier, Metronet, Alstom, Jarvis, Balfour Beatty and nearly all rail operating companies.
Tool safety systems
Our Tools@Height safety system stops dropped tools harming personnel, causing damage or disrupting work. The system provides controlled storage of tools, secure transportation of tools to the worksite and reliable retention of tools during use.
High-level uses include working on railway gantries, wind turbines, cranes, buildings, bridges, masts, power lines, drilling derricks, etc.
Low-level uses include stopping tools falling into machinery, production lines, water filter beds, fuel rod cooling ponds, mine shafts, etc.
