Up to twice as strong as fiberglass handles that use other processes. Nupla uses an optimum ratio of 70-75% fiberglass to resin to give maximum strengthens with little brittleness.
Nuplaglas® TCP PULTRUSION
Short lengths of solid fiberglass incorporated at critical stress points in the handle pultrusion process assure superior reinforcement while providing optimum strength-to-weight ratio. The patent is used in Nupla's digging tool handles.
Hammers and shovels alike are designed with the operator in mind. Molded handles in Ergo Power® digging products reduce fatigue and offer greater control of the load. Three grip designs in Classic® and Ergo Power® striking tools let you match the tool to operator and the job.
