Makita has launched its third generation of accessories, promising anti-slip technology across the range.
Widely recognised for its power tools, Makita UK has recently launched a collection of belts and pouches to its range of accessories. The range has been designed to make it easier for tradespeople to safely and easily store and transport tools and accessories. The collection includes belts, braces, pouches, holders, bags, cases, gear and equipment.
There are over 40 products in the range and the pouches and holsters are available in a number of designs, depending on the end use. The company explained that each has the benefit of anti-slip technology, which is used on all friction points and pocket edges, designed to tightly grip tools. The intention is to stop them from sliding around and keeping them securely in place to help prevent accidental falls. This is also useful for those working in awkward positions where they need both hands free.
All belts and pouches include 3L Technology, a three layer combination of polyesters and foam, to provide additional cushioning and improve user comfort.
Lyndsey Bailey, Assistant Product Manager at Makita, said: “To complete the range, Makita has also launched a range of handy additional accessories – including smartphone holders, flasks, a work vest with adjustable pockets, knee pads, a guide rail protective holder, lunch bags and a thermal mug. Makita has designed each product with its end use in mind and has introduced a number of new technologies and innovative features to guarantee suitability. These fantastic new products offer users increased comfort, ease of use, flexibility and reliability.”
To help with tool storage, some of Makita’s bags, pouches and holders include elastic loops that can be used to organise tools and essential items, designed to keep them secure during transportation. In addition, a Tool Loops System, which is available in the new tool cases, allows the user to store numerous tools without having to make any adjustments. The system can hold a wide variety of tools thanks to a combination of loop sizes, with a single or twin row formation to maximise capacity.
The company’s new tool cases also give users the option to customise the internal compartments using a new Rail Guide System – a combination of plastic side rails and light separating walls.
