Men love to work with tools and equipment of all kinds. It is basically about taking something apart and putting it back together in the shortest possible time. Although men look more adventurous by nature, not all tools and appliances fit into their work criteria. In the world of metal fabrication, which is the place that most tools are needed, many hazards become apparent due to the potential dangers present. Since nobody wants to experience an accident when performing routine jobs, certain prerequisites are required from most hardware tools that men choose to use.
- Use it anywhere whether dry or wet – the best tools to work with are those that can be used despite the changes in the weather. This means that in wet climates, where most accidents are likely to occur, the functionality of the tool should not affected.
- No repainting – when many items are installed, they usually require a touch-up paint job in certain areas after the final work has been completed. This can be considered one of the hidden costs of installation. For those working with limited budgets this can mean putting off a home improvement task because it means spending more money to finish the paint job or leave it as is.
- No poisonous gases – nobody wants to be exposed to poisonous fumes for any length of time. Highly toxic gases produce devastating short and long term effects on the lungs. Tools that are used without the added danger of these noxious fumes are much more preferable and safer to use.
- No special installation permits – installing an item such as handrails should not require the delays that acquiring special permits creates. The time taken to acquire a special permit can cause a tragic accident to occur in accident-prone areas like a high staircase or steep edge.
- No downtime – everyday activities should not be stopped by installation processes. Downtime creates distractions and causes a lot of wasted time. This valuable time could be put to better use in more gainful activities.
- No welding – processes that do not require the added danger of welding are much easier for someone to undertake. Although welding is not bad in and of itself, it poses additional risks because of the added heat that is generated by the process. Welding tools are also very dangerous to handle by inexperienced hands. Welded edges are sometimes very rough and can cause scratches and cuts if someone rubs up against them. Public utilities like the balustrade would be much safer when installed without any need for welding.
