Blades up to 33% slimmer for maximum access
With slimTECHNOLOGY by Wiha, the company from the Black Forest region of Germany presents a completely VDE-tested solution for fastening tools. Ingeniously simple: insulation that often poses a hindrance has been integrated into the through-hardened blades, thus creating maximum access to the fastening elements. In this way the slim blades achieve a reduction of total diameter of 11% to a maximum of 33% in the critical working area according to output size. This means that the slim blades from Wiha are extremely narrow but are still characterised by a high performance that surpass stipulations for VDE torque several times over, and simply get the job done. The advantage for electricians: GS and VDE-tested safety with proven Wiha quality for fastening positions that were until now annoyingly inaccessible. The handles of the new VDE slim line are of course based upon the tried-and-proven Wiha handle size concept that has set standards for years in terms of surface feel and ergonomics.
In addition to the existing VDE-tested SoftFinish® electric assortment, Wiha also offers a wide range of various outputs for three different slim systems in the new catalogue: slimFix, slimVario and slimTorque.
With the introduction of slimTECHNOLOGY, Wiha underlines its VDE expertise and also presents an innovation for VDE fastening tools that offers all electricians increased safety levels and real user benefits.
