Pliers - Including VDE

Work safely with the Shop4 Electrical range of VDE pliers sourced from the market leading suppliers Knipex, CK Tools and Draper

The VDE standard is being recognised more and more these days especially in the light of health and safety regulations which are now everywhere in the building trade. Seeing the VDE trademark on a pair of pliers or a screwdriver gives assurance that it is safe to use on live circuits.

Alongside the VDE mark is often found a voltage limit which indicates the voltage that this tool is safe to work with. Like most safety standards, the voltage these tools are tested to is far and above the limit printed on the tool ensuring maximum safety.

To bear the VDE Certification Mark, tools are put through very rigorous testing to ensure that the quality, construction, safety and even ergonomics meet with protective requirements of the applicable EC Directive.
