VARIO Operating Key
The VARIO Operating Key is a special tool to actuate valves and hydrants above and below the ground, as well as in manholes. By using a wide range of operation insets the VARIO Key can be used to actuate valves, as well as hand-wheels. Insets can be changed quickly and conveniently by pressing integrated spring connection pieces. Additionally a ratchet, cross joint or other modifications may be used to complement VARIO, making it a versatile companion for your daily routine. VARIO is GS approved (German seal of quality for tools) and can transmit up to 400 Nm of torque or 1000 Nm using SUPER-VARIO.
In the construction of the VARIO Operating Key we considered the necessity for ergonomic workplace design. By being easily adjustable in height, the operator is able to stand in an upright position, sparing his back and spine from a hunched position that may lead to physical injuries. Furthermore, both sides of the VARIO T-handle can be extended to generate additional torque.
