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.
|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.
