FACOM’s Comprehensive Range of Non-Sparking Hand Tools

Non-sparking hand tools are fundamental to work safely in potentially explosive or flammable work environments such as in the mining, oil & gas and aerospace sector. To enhance the safety of workers that work in dangerous environment, Facom has developed a range of anti-explosion, corrosion-resistant and anti-magnetic wrenches, ratchets, screwdrivers, hammers and so on.
