Tool tethering equipment – safety has top priority at STAHLWILLE

Wuppertal, 25.09.2018


The Wuppertal-based tool specialist, STAHLWILLE, particularly well known for its torque solutions, is one of the leading suppliers of handtools to service companies in the wind energy sector. At the WindEnergy in Hamburg, the world's leading trade fair in this field, the company is presenting tool tethering solutions that have been specially conceived to match the tools used for service jobs in and on wind turbines.

Service work on wind turbines places special demands on the safety of users and tools. Installation and maintenance work at lofty heights can only be carried out safely and efficiently if people, tools and small parts are all effectively protected from falling. This is why tool tethering plays such a crucial role. STAHLWILLE offers a range of high-quality tool-tethering equipment for practically any application. In addition, the QuickRelease safety lock system from STAHLWILLE makes another important contribution to safety. This is the effective way to secure not only the tools themselves, but also individual components such as extensions and insert tools.

At the customer's request, STAHLWILLE also offers tools and tool sets already fitted with appropriate tethering devices, which saves the customer the time otherwise required for fitting the tethers. This tool specialist also manufactures individual Tool Control System (TCS) safety foam inlays as a storage system on request. They offer tethered tools close-fitting protection and, thanks to their tool cut-outs being marked in a signal colour, ensure that any missing tools immediately catch the user's eye.
