Phoenix Contact ergonomic hand tools reduce hand fatigue
The tools' ergonomic handles are made of both hard and soft plastic, which creates a slip-proof grip. Improved leverage makes working easier and requires less force. The crimping pliers, for example, require 25 percent less exertion force than traditional models. This prevents hand and forearm strain and reduces fatigue.
Available tools include:
All products in the line feature black and teal handles to create a uniform, professional appearance. Applicable products were tested in accordance with DIN EN 60352-2 and DIN 50018.
