DeckLock Safety System
ELIMINATES ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY CARRIAGE DROP
The optional DeckLock system protects workers, materials and machines by eliminating accidents caused by carriage drop. That includes uncontrolled descent in the case of overload or brake malfunction during loading/unloading operations.
When needed, the high-capacity DeckLocks automatically extend to prevent uncontrolled descent at critical upper levels.
- Ensure safe loading and unloading with a forklift.
- Prevent uncontrolled descent in the case of overload or brake malfunction during loading/unloading operations.
Gate-operated mechanical, pneumatic and electric versions are available.
PFlow VRCs are built with a substantial safety factor, but inadvertent overload can result in dangerous, unintentional carriage descent.
Mechanical VRCs depend upon spring-set brakes to maintain the carriage position. These brakes are sized to provide a minimum of 150% of maximum load capacity; however, wear and lack of brake maintenance can reduce that capacity. Overload of the carriage can cause brake slippage. The exclusive PFlow patented DeckLock system provides additional safety under these conditions.
