Introduced in 2019, the Wiha slimBit boxes in a belt holster impressed the high-ranking jury for the international design competition which the Design Center Baden-Württemberg holds every year. The award for the Focus Open 2019 Silver went to hand tool manufacturer Wiha’s new product, which impressed with its functional design. On announcing their decision, the jury highlighted in particular, the high-quality workmanship in slimBit boxes and their practical utility value thanks to the combination of functions which make them easy to transport and use.
Black Forest-based Wiha has created a compact transport, removal and storage option with its slimBit boxes for 6 or 12 slimBits. These large sets safely hold 12 slimBits with different profiles in two slimBit boxes containing six bits each. This allows users to carry slimBits around safely, neatly arranged in a box. The box offers users an optimum view of screw profiles, ensuring users can select and remove the slimBits in an instant. The practical belt clip allows users to remove the slimBits from the boxes or replace them with one hand. Wiha slimBits impress thanks to their protection against electric shock up to 1,000 V AC and their slender shape with embedded insulation. This all makes it easier to access confined spots and ensures electricians are fully protected.
After the Red Dot Product Design Award 2019, the Focus Open 2019 Silver is now the second award that the Wiha slimBit-Box and belt holster solution has won.
