Specialty and Safety Tools for Hazardous Environments
and the Everyday Workplace

Do you need to grind or cut metal in an EX Area? Sick of building habitats and needing to acquire Hot Work Permits?

Well look no further. Our Non-Sparking tools mean there's no more worrying about heat and sparks in EX areas!

There are many occasions where traditional grinding and cutting tools are totally unsuitable due to things such as heat and spark creation. Using a generic grinder in an EX Area could mean you're putting everyone's life on the line - not to mention risking the very existence of your facility!

Habitats are of course an option but their use is time-consuming and expensive. By the time you've acquired the necessary Hot Work Permit, set up the habitat, and carry out the actual work - you would probably rather not have to total up the time spent, and all the costs incurred.

AVL Tool and Die offers a better way. All our tools are non sparking, and air powered, and allow you to do the job quickly. No shutdown or slowdown in production. No need for committee work or frustrating delays.

Just grab the tool, get the job done and sweep up the cuttings. Safely. Quickly. Cheaply.
