Tools in the Perform & Protect range are designed to consistently exceed health and safety regulations without compromising on performance. It is our stamp of certification that lets you know that the tools you use are up to the task — they let you get more done in less time without compromising health and safety.
Perform & Protect tools let you get more done in less time and push boundaries of performance without compromising health and safety.
Get more done in less time
Improved tool and team performance
Tools exceed health and safety regulations
Having tools that are compliant with stringent jobsite regulations gives you and your team the ability to take on a greater range of jobs.
Access jobs on large construction sites
Tools comply with jobsite regulations
Take on a wider range of larger jobs
Jobsite safety is paramount. Our Perform & Protect stamp lets your team know that you've tools that exceed safety standards and lets everyone on site know that you're fully compliant and safe.
Informs users that tools are fully compliant
Inform construction sites that you are fully compliant
Mitigates risks associated with prolonged tool use
Reduced risk of dust inhalation and
Vibration levels reduced by up to 50%,
lowering exposure to risk.
Tools can bind up in normal drilling or cutting applications which can cause injury to the user, or damage the tool.
Your last line of defence when tools fall.
The Perform & Protect range reduces the health risks associated with dust inhalation such as silicosis or chronic obstructive lung disease (COLD). The Perform & Protect range features advanced dust management solutions including HEPA certified M Class extractors (0.1% dusts with maximum allowable concentrations (MAC) ≥ 0.1 mg/m³) with automatic filter cleaning, shrouds, hollow drill bits, as well as universal extractors compatible with all brands of tools.

A STEADY HAND
Prolonged vibration exposure leads to common disorders like carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and white finger (VWF). Our Active Vibration Control features include counterbalance systems, floating handles and more to considerably lower levels of triaxial vibrations. This helps deliver up to 50% lower vibrations compared to standard model power tools as measured against EN 60745 1:2006.
Correctly used, tools in the Perform & Protect range ensure user exposure is kept below the Exposure Action Value limit. Tools recording a 5m/s² vibration can be used up to 2 hours/day to reach the exposure action value (EAV) and up to 8 hours/day to reach the exposure limit value (ELV). Increased time and comfort of use means you and your team can perform heavy-duty tasks for longer with greater safety.
Perform heavy duty tasks for longer
Increased user comfort levels
Enhanced team safety levels, reliability, and longevity
Reduces vibration felt by the user at handles by 20%.
POWER IS NOTHING WITHOUT CONTROL
High speed, high-performance tools can jam when cutting or drilling risking injury to the user and tool. Our Perform & Protect range features integrated, advanced torque control technology as standard.
Anti-rotation E-Clutch systems detect rotational motion and minimise any sudden torque reaction, while electronic Kickback Brakes in our grinders automatically shut off power when a pinch, stall or bind up occurs. LED indicators and overload sensors also feature.

YOUR LAST LINE OF DEFENSE WHEN A TOOL FALLS
When working at heights on the jobsite it’s important to adopt integrated solutions offering ultimate protection and secure the tool in case it drops. Lanyard ready integrated solutions offer options to tether select corded and cordless tools to rigid structures on jobsites when working at height with a maximum lanyard length of 2m, helping to secure the tool in case it is dropped*. All Perform & Protect products are designed to consistently exceed health and safety regulations without compromising on performance.
*See individual product details for lanyard connection methods. Lanyards sold separately. Additional safety instructions included in manual.
