For 'made to last' tools

Pellenc has announced that they have obtained Longtime certification for four of its professional tools.

Created by Ethikis ad civis, Longtime is the first European and independent label that identifies and promotes products that are designed to last.
The certification includes the Helion 3 electric hedge trimmer, the Airion 3 electric blower and ULIB 1200 & 1500 batteries. They say they are the first manufacturer of professional tools, motors and batteries to benefit from this label. 

Pellenc say one of the most effective strategies to reduce the environmental impact of a product is to extend its lifespan. The company say they have been mobilising its R&D teams for many years in order to offer equipment that is more durable, robust and repairable over time.

The Helion 3, the Airion 3, and the ULIB 1200 & 1500 batteries have been awarded the European Longtime label after a strict and impartial control carried out by APAVE Certification.

This demanding process made it possible to assess the compliance of these products with the 41 criteria of the label, which focus on robustness, repairability and the monitoring and maintenance of the tools. 

  • The Helion 3 hedge trimmer has a reliable brushless electric motor, a robust cutterbar, and the materials of which it is composed, insensitive to corrosion, have been selected for their compatibility with intensive use and for their resistance to impacts.
  • The Airion 3 blower features replaceable and repairable magnesium parts.
  • The ULIB 1200 & 1500 batteries are composed of very high-capacity lithium-ion cells and offer a lifespan of more than 1,300 charge cycles.

By voluntarily committing to this sustainability approach, Pellenc say they go “.. beyond the regulation of the repairability index and is fully committed to the fight against planned obsolescence and respect for the environment.”

Elsa Lomont co-founder of Ethikis, said, "We are proud that manufacturers are using the label to objectively inform consumers about the sustainability of the products they sell to consumers. Committing to the Longtime approach means demonstrating transparency and we are delighted that Pellenc has joined this approach."

Pellenc is distributed exclusively in the UK by Etesia UK.
