Lock 'N' Safe

The concept is simple: Lock 'N' Safe quickly, effectively and safely locks out lumber sorter bins to ensure the bin floor will not move when a worker is present in or below the bin area. Lock 'N' Safe is similar to a cable brake that stays open with compressed air, and requires no electricity to operate. Lock 'N' Safe units are easily installed in any type of bin sorter. 

Lock 'N' Safe Rated Load Capacity
              System                Working Load Per Brake Unit             Total Bin Weight (as a pair)
       Standard (STD)                                10,000 lbs.                               20,000 lbs.
      Heavy Duty (HD)                                20,000 lbs.                               40,000 lbs. 

The factor of safety on each brake unit is five to one based on actual load tests made on prototypes. Each brake unit is shop-tested to 1.5x its rated load capacity on our test bench.
