Keeping Employees Safe
Rite-Hite offers the GateKeeper Mezzanine Safety Gate, a
reciprocating barrier that creates a controlled access area
in which workers can safely load and unload from the edge
of a mezzanine or elevated work platform. The GateKeeper
is designed with a dual reciprocating gate that is intercon-nected and can’t be open at the same time. It is installed
on the edge of a mezzanine, pick module or elevated
platform where pallet loads from the floor level are regularly deposited for pick-up. When the outer gate opens to
allow pallets to enter the mezzanine level, the inner gate
automatically closes. After the pallet is received, the mez-zanine-level workers open the inner gate to remove the
material from the work zone. The GateKeeper’s exclusive
link bar design ensures that both gates always work in
unison, and a Saf-T-Latch prevents a worker from raising
the outer gate while inside the work zone.
Preventing Pipe and Dust Fires
The ValvEx is
tions. It consists
of a heavy-duty coated steel body containing a high-strength,
formed stainless steel flap. Air flow will open the flap to allow
normal process conveyance conditions. When an explosion
occurs in the adjacent vessel, the flow will reverse, causing
the flap to close onto its field-replaceable seal, stopping ex-
plosion pressure and flame propagation. Additional features
include ATEX certification and NFPA 69 compliance.
Patlite introduces the LU7-LB – a
loud, multi-sound module capable of
producing sound pressure up to 100
dB and easily heard over ambient
noise. It features four preset alarm
sound patterns with various frequencies, selectable from a DIP switch,
to maximize the effectiveness of the
alert/notification process in almost
any situation. The LU7-LB sound
module can be used even when a
five-light configuration is used and
the alarm can be triggered to sound
with any of the five LED modules and
connects with LED unit for simultaneous control.
