The KNIPEX range of tool cases and backpacks

The KNIPEX range of tool cases and backpacks

According to recent figures, the average distance travelled by construction workers to the site they are working on is 17 miles. Tradespeople often find themselves on the move across various job sites, meaning they need to transport their tools comfortably and securely.

Recognising this, KNIPEX has developed a range of tool cases and backpacks which do the job comfortably and securely, whether you are on public transport or piling into a van.

The KNIPEX Modular X18 (00 21 50 LE) service backpack allows you to carry all your tools, laptops, or accessories comfortably on your back. The Modular X18 is made for those who don’t want to compromise on which tools they can take. The backpack can hold up to 15kg and it adapts perfectly to its wearer, thanks to the fully foldable front and back, a laptop compartment, a removable tool board, and ergonomic back padding.

Durability is important and the backpack’s fabric is made from sustainable recycled synthetic fibre that is splash-proof and easy to clean. The waterproof, 6cm high base shell made of impact-resistant plastic ensures the backpack stands firmly on the ground when open and closed.

FIDLOCK connectors and adapters with fabric loops and MOLLE straps provide many options for individual tool storage and access to the tools. There are also two separate inner compartments on the front and back for tools, measuring devices and a 15in notebook or tablet. With a total of 21 straps, 37 pockets and a luggage strap, everything that needs to be close at hand can be stowed away. The luggage straps can be attached to the telescopic handles of tool cases.

Of course, you may want a backpack pre-filled with tools, and that is where the KNIPEX Modular X18 Electric (00 21 50 E) comes in. This is equipped with 16 KNIPEX tools, a total of 22 branded tools, partially VDE-tested according to DIN EN 60900. For HVAC professionals, the KNIPEX Modular X18 Plumbing (00 21 50 S) is packed with 12 KNIPEX tools, a total of 17 branded tools, also partially VDE-tested according to DIN EN 60900. The Modular X18 recently won the prestigious Plus X Award in the following categories: Ease of Use, Functionality, High Quality and Ergonomics.

The new Robust26 Move tool case (00 21 33 LE) is ideal when safely moving lots of tools. With an extendable, ergonomic handle, smooth-running wheels, and an automatic pressure compensation valve, it is great for plane, train, or van travel. In addition to being impact resistant, thanks to its tough polypropylene shell, it is also temperature-stable from -30°C to +80°C.

The interior of this flexible case consists of 19 tool pockets, 61 straps and a document compartment. The tool boards with the tool pockets and straps are made from dirt-repellent PP twin-wall sheets whilst the lockable base tray can be divided individually using an aluminium divider system. Magnetic recesses offer a practical storage area for small items and there is an integrated padlock fitting to keep all your tools secure.

This robust case is available empty or with equipment for the electrical or HVAC sector. The Robust26 Move electrical tool case (00 21 33 E) is equipped with 16 KNIPEX tools, and 22 branded tools and is partially VDE tested according to DIN EN 60900. For HVAC professionals, the Robust26 Move sanitary tool case (00 21 33 S) is designed with 12 KNIPEX tools, a total of 17 branded tools. It is also partially VDE tested according to DIN EN 60900. If required, several cases can be conveniently stacked.
