Emergency exit device launched
23 January 2013
French industrial safety specialist SERV Trayvou Interverrouillage has developed the DEU (dispositif d'Ã©vacuation d'urgence), a new system to prevent an operator becoming trapped in a dangerous area. Made entirely from
The DEU is mounted in conjunction with a latched access lock. Any operator finding themselves trapped inside a dangerous area simply pushes the DEU's button and, with this simple gesture, frees the latch from the DEU. The operator can then leave the area.
If fitted with safety contacts, the device can also enable an emergency stop circuit to be opened and therefore the machine to be stopped.
