Because Foot Tools are impractical
This line of industrial quality shovels offers all the features and benefits of Nupla's Classic line but adds protection and comfort with durable Nuplaflex® abrasion resistant cladding over the entire length of the handle. Protec shovel handles represent the latest technology in fiberglass tool handle production. Patented super duty Nuplaglas® handles feature pultruded structural cores. This composite design, which provides optimum strength, consists of millions of continuous parallel fiberglass strands cured under tension in a thermosetting resin, with reinforced sections at critical stress points. A patented integral compression bar that fills and reinforces the blade throat adds strength in heavy duty applications.
While providing safety and comfort, the Nuplaflex abrasion resistant barrier minimizes wear and protects the user from possible fiberglass splinters. It also provides a superior gripping surface in all heavy duty industrial applications.
Protec Classic fiberglass shovel handles have a built in dielectric safety feature since fiberglass is one of the finest insulators available. Protec shovels can be used in wet conditions where moisture-laden wood or tubular steel would have disastrous results. They do not conduct heat or cold and are impervious to industrial chemicals making them safe to use around acids, oils, fuels or other contaminants. Nuplaglas handled tools have a high shelf life since they are unaffected by fungus, termites or dry rot as are wood handled tools.
