PLATE C-37 Approval Criteria Pole Tool Assemblies
(1) The maximum extension of the pole tool assembly shall not exceed 6 feet (183 cm) in length measured from the heel of the powder-actuated tool to the trigger mechanism on the pole.
(2) The powder-actuated tool, to which the pole tool assembly is attached, shall be only of low velocity type.
(3) The extension assembly shall be of such structural integrity as to withstand the forces involved in the use of the tool.
(4) The powder-actuated tool shall be of a type whereby either fasteners or power loads must be loaded individually.
(5) The trigger mechanism shall be attached to the assembly.
(6) Pole tool extension assemblies shall either be constructed of a dielectric [FNa1] material, or those portions of the trigger mechanism and pole normally held by the operator while using the tool in the upright position shall be covered with a dielectric material sufficient to preclude the possibility of electric shock or burn caused by contact between the tool or attachments with energized wiring.
[FNa1]
The pole tool handle and connecting controls shall be capable of withstanding for one minute, without breakdown, the application of a 60 hertz essentially sinusoidal potential of 1000 volts + 2 x (rated voltage).
EXAMPLE: 1000 + 2(600) = 2200 volts.
