Specifcations and Construction Material Information

All our handles are composed of Long Glass Nylon which enhances the thermal properties compared to commonly used materials such as aluminum; in addition, this lightweight material is stronger and more wear-resistant. From temperatures of -40C to +50C, each handle is designed to battle the most hostile environments

The Handle-Tech Handle has a safe lifting capacity of 400lbs with a breaking point at 1125 lbs. *Note that this device was designed for hand-use only and should only be used as designed.

The following specifications apply to all Handle-Tech handles.
