hisco® hand tools

Hollow fiberglass handles may be fine for recreational use but if you must rely on your hand tools everyday, HISCO's fiberglass handles have a legacy of premium performance. All HISCO handles are produced from thousands of continuous strands of fiberglass saturated with thermosetting resins and a non-fiberglass polyester veil impregnated on the surface. The veil gives the handle a smooth finish and keeps the fiberglass from splintering.

Hisco handle PERFORMANCE FEATURES
  1. HISCO's workhorse handle is solid fiberglass and we use this handle on our 500 Series tools, digging bars and cant hooks. Unsurpassed in strength, the weight of the handle becomes an asset when digging in hard, compact and rocky soils or when using the tool to cut through tree roots.
  2. Our signature fiberglass handle used on our digging tools features a thick wall fiberglass tube, which is less flexible than poly-molded handles, and has a solid fiberglass inner core in the base followed by a polystyrene core through the remaining portion of the handle. The solid fiberglass core extends the stress point above the criticalneck or collar portion of the handle which increases its overall strength and durability. The handles used on our roofing tools and scoop type tools, that are not usually subjected to the same types of stress as digging tools, feature the same thick wall fiberglass tube and a polystyrene core throughout.
  3. On tools that require less strength, such as our rakes, brooms, lutes and hoes, we use our fiberglass handle with a honeycomb plastic core.
  4. All of our long handle digging tools feature our new 8-inch Tuffoam double-dip grips which have been designed for the toughest industrial applications. The grips feature a durable, vinyl inner liner and a comfortable, non-slip foam exterior that provides long life and helps prevent potential harmful hand fatigue.
  5. Our D-Grips, used on short and mid-length handled tools, are made of one-piece high-density nylon. Rake and hoe handles have durable polyvinyl butt grips.
