SWi/SW Range Flange Spreaders

About the SWi/SW Range Flange Spreaders

The SWi range has set the new standard for spreading flange joints powerfully, efficiently, effectively and safely. The tools offer the following features and benefits: Wider spreading - using the supplied Stepped Block accessories means the SWi range offers up to 30% more flange spreading distance than a traditional SW tool.

Unrivalled power - the tools now offer up to 25T of spreading force, which provides additional confidence when spreading. Narrower jaws - the SWi tools are 8% narrower than the traditional SW range to help them fit more easily between flange bolts.

Safer working – the 360-degree swivel lanyard on all SWi tools enables users to attach the spreader to some adjacent pipework, mitigating potential dropped object injury.

Fully rotational handle – the handle swivels 360-degrees around the wedge head, so that the SWi tools can be used comfortably in all orientations. Lighter tools – the SWi tools are on average lighter than the traditional SW spreaders and are therefore easier to carry on-site and to use.

Better handle grips – the SWi comes with a reinforced composite handle making it easier to grip, hold and use. Safety blocks - designed to suit the step sizes of the SWi tools, the supplied safety blocks accommodate the wider spread offered when the stepped blocks are fitted.

Easier maintenance – end-users will appreciate the ease with which the tools can be maintained. The supplied hexkey and a two step-process is all that’s required to disassemble and reassemble the tools.

No pinch points – the SWi range of tools has been engineered to overcome finger pinch-points.
