Glass Handling Tools

One of the most delicate tasks a modern auto fitter is likely to perform in the course of their work is the removal and refitting of windscreens and other glass panels in vehicles, railway rolling stock or plant machinery.  While tyres, mechanical components and even bodywork parts are designed to withstand a certain amount of rough handling, the inherent brittleness and fragility of glass means that without dedicated glass handling accessories, many screens would be lost or damaged during the normal course of removal and refitting.

At JT Hand Tools, we specialize in the latest tools for glass handling applications across all industries, and particularly the auto repair business.  With correct and careful use of these glass handling products technicians can expect to suffer zero breakages, even when handling the largest and heaviest panes and working on the most awkward of jobs.  Being able to have full confidence in your equipment has obvious benefits for any tradesperson, in terms of both health and safety considerations and also financially.

Almost all manual glass handling systems revolve around some form of glass suction lifter.  To be able to attach handles to a sheet of glass has many advantages: the weight of the item can be more comfortably borne and manoeuvred; touching the surface of the glass in such a way as to leave marks is no longer necessary; touching the edges of the pane is avoided, protecting fingers.  However, anyone drilling or clamping a sheet of glass in order to attach handles is asking for trouble.

The answer is to use these handles, each fitted with a glass lifter suction cup.  The devices can be attached to any flat or gently curved glass surface to create an convenient handle.  To find out more about these or other glass handling tools, contact JT Hand Tools today.
