As the warmer months approach, Snickers Workwear’s LITEWork Work Trousers are the right choice for flexibility, and cooling comfort. The sustainable fabric technology also delivers stretchable, lightweight work trousers that provide efficient moisture transport, ventilation and sun protection.


From working in the smallest of spaces to safely at height, the Knipex Cobra range has a set of pliers for the job. All the products are self-locking to pipes and nuts, and the teeth – which are offset against the direction of rotation – allow for efficient gripping, holding, pressing and bending. For the correct opening width simply place the upper half of the jaw onto the workpiece and slide the lower jaw in position to fix the pliers in place.

It offers a maximum cutting capacity of up to 61mm and a cutting speed of 4,000rpm.
