Alpine Power Systems provides a range of insulated tools to protect against energized circuits and to reduce the risk of serious injury. Insulated tool kits are designed to safeguard personnel and equipment that is susceptible to shorting out and creating spiking surges to electrical apparatuses. Alpine offers insulated toolkits for a variety of applications from battery and UPS maintenance, to telecommunications and general electrical work. Due to OSHA 1910.331 standards, insulated tools have begun to emerge to satisfy electrical safety related work practices. Laws have been implemented by OSHA enforcing mandatory compliance with standards that will reduce the number of electrical accidents related to unsafe work practices by field technicians.
All insulated battery technician tools are rated for exposure of up to 1000VAC and di-electrically tested at 10,000VAC. Each toolkit meets or exceeds ASTM F1505-01 and IEC 900 Standards for Insulated Hand Tools as well as compliance for OSHA 1910.333 (c)(2), and NFPA 70E 2012. Individual tools are made with two-color insulating material that is impact resistant and flame retardant. For ease of inspection and added safety each tool has a yellow under layer that identifies when the tool should be replaced and removed from service.
