All our electric wire-rope hoists for lifting personnel on temporary suspended platforms, cradles or bosun chairs are required to be fitted with safety locks (fall-prevention systems).
FIXATOR has developed two safety locks for protecting personnel:
SECURICHUTE (overspeed), which is triggered in the event of platform tilting and overspeed > 30m/min;
SECURISTOP, which is triggered if the platform is tilted > 14° or if there is no tension in the wire-rope (slack rope).
If a platform drops suddenly or experiences excessively abnormal tilting, our fall-prevention systems will kick in and prevent the drop or tilt.
Our overspeed device has an emergency stop button that can be operated manually.
The load capacities of our safety locks are 500, 600, 800 and 1,000 kg.
Our fall-prevention systems are fully compliant with the safety requirements of the European Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.
Our SECURICHUTE safety locks (fall-prevention systems) are triggered in the event of platform tilting and overspeed > 30m/min.
Their load capacities range from 500 to 1,000 kg.See all products
Our SECURISTOP safety locks (fall-prevention systems) are triggered in the event of platform tilting (> 14° or if there is no tension in the wire-rope).
