To meet United States Ergonomics testing standards, muscle activity levels of the hand, wrist and forearm were recorded as sheet metal workers and carpentry professionals completed a series of common applications with the DEWALT® Ergo Aviation Snips. The muscle effort levels were analyzed to assess the effort for all major muscles involved in the tasks. Based on the positive testing performance of the DEWALT® Ergo Aviation Snips, they have been awarded the United States Ergonomics Ergonomic Product Performance Certification.
The Dewalt Ergo Aviation snips was designed with a reduced handle span, providing lower level of muscle effort required while cutting tough materials. This tool is traditionally used for cutting aluminum, vinyl siding, screening, cardboard, leather, copper and 18 to 22-Gauge sheet metal. The snip's serrated cutting edge prevent materials from slipping during use and the slip-resistant, bi-material cushion grip ensures a firm, comfortable grip.
