Lock ‘N’ Safe Certification Requirements and Service Life States:
- Lock ‘N’ Safe systems must be visually inspected and load tested by a certified LNS technician every five years in order to maintain certification per WSBC regulation part 4.3(2) and 4.8(2)( c ).
- Lock ‘N’ Safe brake units have a rated service life of 10 years, at which point they must be replaced unless they can be re-certified by our technician for an additional five years – based on our visual inspection and a successful load test.
- Following item 2, the Service Life of a Lock ‘N’ Safe brake unit is limited to a maximum of 15 years because our inspection and testing procedure cannot evaluate internal wear, cracking, fretting, or corrosion – and the cost to adequately evaluate the brakes internal components is greater than the cost to replace the brake assembly.
- We recommend that any Lock ‘N’ Safe brake unit which is beyond its service life be replaced within one year to maintain the reliability of the system.
