Save lives with lockout for large gate valves!
24 January 2017
Safely lock out gate valves with diameters up to 18 inch (457 mm) with the Brady’s new Collapsible Gate Valve Lockout. Easily store or carry the device thanks to its 3 time folding system.
With the Collapsible Gate Valve Lockout, you can block large gate valves (3 - 18 inch / 76 - 457 mm) to neutralise or secure the flow of energy or materials to machines. Every worker servicing the machine can apply a padlock to the lockout device to lock a valve in the off-position while maintenance is ongoing. This prevents other workers from inadvertently re-energising machinery which could lead to impactful workplace accidents. Collapsible Gate Valve Lockouts can also be used to secure the flow of water to firefighting systems for example.
This new Lockout tool is a rugged, injection molded styrene construction that can withstand harsh outdoor conditions. The device can be coupled with any of Brady's vast range of padlocks. Up to two padlocks can be attached directly on the Collapsible Gate Valve Lockout, and even more padlocks can be added to safeguard larger maintenance teams by using Brady's Lockout/Tagout safety hasp.
