Wiha focuses on health preservation and ergonomics with the latest quality seal from AGR e.V. (Organisation for healthy backs) at Frankfurt’s Light+Building trade fair in Hall 8, Stand F16

Schonach, February 2016 – from 13th – 18th March 2016 in Frankfurt the hand tool manufacturer Wiha will be presenting more than just its broad product range and new user-oriented products for electricians. Alongside its core concentration on 100% safety in work and applications in the electrical sector, Wiha’s focus will also be on the subjects of ergonomics and efficiency. Wiha is the world's first hand tool manufacturer to receive the internationally recognised AGR seal (Aktion Gesunder Rücken e. V. (Organisation for healthy backs) for its ergonomic handle design of screwdrivers and Inomic pliers. Wiha has been the only hand tool manufacturer worldwide to receive this confirmation of the effectiveness of its excellent products in terms of ergonomics, preserving health, and preventing injuries.

Completely 100% safe tools with protective insulation are of paramount importance for all tasks in the electrical sector and on electrical systems. In this context, work should be carried out professionally, as well as quickly and efficiently. At the same time, the health of the user or the ergonomic use of the hand tools should always be at the forefront. Wiha fulfils these requirements with an uncompromising solution. It offers hand tools that not only offer an impressive increase in efficiency, intelligent functions and complete safety, but also set new standards when it comes to ergonomics and protecting the health of the user. In November 2015, the effectiveness of the ergonomic handle size concept of screwdrivers and the Inomic plier handle concept were approved by the AGR and rewarded with their internationally recognised seal. The tools’ health-preserving effect was verified by a series of comprehensive testing and examinations by independent doctors and specialised therapists. Wiha’s handle concepts ensure more comfortable, longer and above all pain-free work for users.

This sophisticated handle concept spans four handle sizes and lengths in the SoftFinish, SoftFinish electric, SoftFinish ESD and MicroFinish ranges, each of which is optimally adapted to the specific fastening or task in order to help users to minimise or even prevent musculoskeletal disorders and joint and muscle pain.

Wiha’s many years of experience in the electrical sector, coupled with its professional understanding of the electrical segment and its specific requirements, are also reflected in its latest concept and product solutions. With its two new electrician’s case systems, the hand tool specialist also demonstrates its ability to implement feedback, long-term user surveys and market investigations effectively. The cases offer ample storage space for a wide range of tools which are always close at hand, thanks to the generously dimensioned case design and clever functions. The 80-piece XL and 115-piece XXL cases are equipped with a comprehensive assortment of indispensable helpers and tools for day-to-day work. Features like the robust material, soft-close lid with gas-filled shock absorbers and the comfortable and health-protecting transport options add the perfect finishing touches to the case, whilst once again highlighting Wiha’s focus on facilitating everyday work for users and placing health at the forefront.

Wiha will present this and much more over six trade fair days in Hall 8, Stand F16.
