What Is An Insulated Screwdriver?
An insulated screwdriver is constructed from non-conductive materials, in this set that material being a rubbery silicone. This is to prevent the user from the possibility of touching live parts of a circuit. By having the shaft and handle of the screwdriver protectively coated it ensures the safety of the user when in an electrical environment. Screwdrivers are used for insertion and removal of screws, there are a multitude of variations which correspond to the correct screw drive. The average screwdriver will consist of an ergonomically designed handle and a shaft with a drive tip. A screwdriver is classified by its tip, which is specifically designed to fit into a driving surface such as slot and groove.
Any electrical environments where an electric current may be exposed, it is advised that any professional or homeowner use an insulated screwdriver because bare metal is a very good conductor of heat.
The slotted tip screwdrivers are usually used as a building tool, due to the smooth domed end which allows for fast spinning action and speed control.
