SafeSmart Access Exclusive Distribution of Leach’s and Big Ben Tools

SafeSmart Access are proud stockists of Leach’s and Big Ben scaffolding supplies. We are here to provide New Zealand scaffolders with a range of products to help get your scaffold installed from the most reputable suppliers. Get to know the story behind the brands below.


Founded in Great Britain in the early 1900s as a business that supplied tools, ironmongery and hardware, Leach’s depended on word of mouth to grow their business. Over time, they became known as specialist suppliers of scaffolding tools with scaffolders from across the country entering Leach’s New Cross, London store to purchase the Leach’s Spanner. This is much like the popularity of the Leach’s Long Life Hex Box Spanner in 7/16″ Poker Style available from SafeSmart Access today.

During the second World War, Leach’s opened three more shops within London to give every scaffolder the opportunity to buy their scaffolding tools from Leach’s. By the time the owner retired in 1999, Leach’s was offering a range of over 40 scaffolders’ spanners, leather belts and frogs. Leach’s has become the exclusive UK distributors of both the Nailspan® and IMN® professional range of scaffolding tools and the expanding range of BIG BEN® products.


For more than 100 years, Big Ben has brought innovative designs of better tools that have helped UK contractors do their work to a high quality with careful consideration to safety and efficiency. The Leach’s and Big Ben industry brands are renowned for their expertise in providing quality scaffolding tools with a collection of products that set new standards in performance and safety. Developing stronger, lighter and high performing tools to meet quality demands for scaffolding workers across the globe.

Big Ben products are available globally and SafeSmart Access is proud to exclusively offer them to New Zealand scaffolding workers.
