The BTB tool weighs only 1.1Kg (2.4Lb) and produces very low vibration levels compared to many other power tools currently being used for auto glass removal.
As well as the unique features and performance of the BTB tool, BTB’s H.A.V. rating is one of the main reasons that the BTB tool is being chosen over other tools. Short-term benefits include less operator fatigue while also avoiding the long-term malady of Reynaud’s Disease, also known as White Finger Syndrome.
Occupational Health & Safety and Hand/Arm Vibration (H.A.V.) are no longer just the concern of the safety committees in larger organisations. They affect every technician using power tools in every sector of industry. For years, industry has used tools that often produce high levels of HAV but with little or no regulatory system in place in most countries, little was done about it.
This has all changed in recent years. The European Union has introduced legislation to regulate the amount of vibration exposure that workers are allowed over a given period of time from the use of power tools. It won’t be long before other countries will need to follow suit.
