Here is a tool that has withstood the test of time. For over 40 years the Pry-Axe has remained Paratech’s bestselling tool in our line. The Pry-Axe is being used by fire departments, police departments and rescue squads worldwide.
The Pry-Axe is a lightweight, multi-purpose, ‘Slam & Ram’ tool designed to pry, enlarge openings, cut sheet metal and twist off locks and latches. This efficient tool lets every firefighter force entry, rescue and ventilate without waiting for help. The Pry-Axe is small enough to carry and rugged enough for most jobs.
The Pry-Axe head and claw assemblies are separate sections forged from high alloy steel and heat treated for maximum strength. A molded rubber sleeve over the handle provides a non-slip grip. The Pry-Axe is electroless nickel plated for good looks and easy maintenance.
TITAN CRASH AXE
Paratech TITANCrash Axe
The Paratech Crash Axe is designed to be an ergonomic, lightweight, wearable (using available holster) multi-purpose tool system that can be employed without preparation and used for forcible entry, extraction, and rescue. The Paratech Crash Axe complies with SAE International Aerospace Standard AS5402 and NTSB Crash Axe requirements.
Removable and replaceable hardened stainless-steel tool bits are rust free, as is the lightweight, Grade 5 Titanium handle. The Paratech Crash Axe is intended for forcing open doors and windows, opening holes, prying and twisting, metal cutting and chopping.
The Crash Axe’s pike has a non-cylindrical shaped cross section that prevents it from being stuck in penetrated materials. to enlarge a punched hole, rotate the Crash Axe to either side. The pike is designed to puncture holes, crush or chip glass, plastic, tiles or other masonry, twist hasps and other hardware.
The Crash Axe’s blade is for chopping, busting, prying, or hinge pin removal. The blade incorporates a modified form of Paratech’s Topcut design that is extended all the way to the axe handle for deeper sheet metal penetration and faster cutting. The titanium handle is ribbed and flared out near the removable tool bits to keep operator’s hands in place, away from the sharp blade.
The metal cutting claw has a forward angle designed to keep the operator’s hands away from jagged sheet metal while metal cutting. The end of the cutting claw is thick and smooth, so the blade will not jam. The incorporated wire cutting notch is used for cutting through fencing and other metal wire, while providing extra “bite” for the claw during metal cutting. Sheet metal can be cut up to 1/8” thickness.
The Paratech Titan Crash Axe is also a prying tool when using its chisel & prying wedge on the opposite end of the removable tool bit head. The “H” shaped cross section of the pry wedge provides maximum strength while adding minimal weight. This geometry also helps to lock the tool into place while prying by focusing the force along the strong edges and deforming the material being spread apart.
Paratech BIEL TOOL
The new Biel Tool is now one piece made from heat treated, electro-polished, stainless steel with an extremely durable ergonomically rubber molded handle. The Biel Tool incorporates many of the features found in the world famous Paratech ‘Pry-Axe’ but is much smaller and light enough to wear on a belt or carry in the pocket of a bunker coat. This is the perfect personal size multi-purpose forcible entry and rescue tool, designed for forcing doors and windows, prying and twisting hasps and locks, light overhauling, nail removal, gas shutoff, metal cutting and chopping.

The head and claw are forged from high alloy steel, heat-treated for maximum strength, then fitted to a 1” (2.5 cm) stress proof bar. The bar has machine grooved non-slip grips. The Hooligan Tool features a claw that is gently curved for maximum prying leverage. The claw opening is parallel and fits over locks, hasps, and many door bars. It can also be used as a nail puller and a gas shut off during emergencies. The “Highway Hooligan Tool” features a metal cutting claw with a machine sharpened metal cutter that uses the can opener principle to cut heavy gauge metal and composites.

The PRT is a powerful hand held rescue tool that can be put to work with a minimal amount of training. Primarily designed for fast, forcible entry, one person can quickly pry open locks and doors in seconds and easily break through brick and concrete block walls within a few minutes. The ‘Slam & Ram’ action of the PRT directs all of its force directly at the point of impact – without deflection, making it safer and more effective than a sledge and wedge. This heavy duty rescue tool is easily stored and transported, so it can always be…the first tool to the rescue.
