Nupla’s line of safety sledge hammers feature heads that are heat-treated to a maximum 30 Rockwell hardness, resulting in a malleable head that will not shear or shatter when striking the extremely hard metals found on mining equipment.

Tool safety is additionally enhanced with Nupla’s Lifetime Ergo molded handles containing solid fiberglass cores and non-slip grips. Sledges are offered in 2- to 20-lb (0.9- to 9.1-kg) sizes with 14- and 32-in. (35.5- and 81.3-cm) handles. They can replace brass hammers in applications that don’t require non-sparking tools. Sledge heads are blue and marked “S” for soft.
