As always, our designers are putting safety first and we are happy to announce our new safety lever lock for Hy-Pro control valves.
The new V5145 safety interlock solution is a locking device which requires the operator to release the lever from its captive neutral position in order to select a service.
Hydraulic power is inherently dangerous and in a confined space or a busy area the inadvertent movement of a lever could cause serious damage or injury. The new safety lever lock is designed to prevent such an occurrence.
The mechanism is manufactured in stainless steel with zinc-plated components for maximum durability. Currently the device is available for horizontal levers but please ask if you need a vertical solution. Please request the safety lever lock as an option when ordering your valve and choose from a selection of coloured knobs.
If this has caused you concern about your current installations, worry no further, the device can easily be retro-fitted to existing Hy-Pro control valves.
