Lightweight Safety Solutions
Kiln repair and maintenance are undoubtedly hazardous tasks, but kiln operators can take steps to provide additional protection for workers. Safety Inspection Cages provide heightened protection keeping them out of harm’s way from debris that commonly falls as coatings shrink and expand. These cages are lightweight, easy to operate and conveniently pair with our Personal Protection Tunnels.
Lightweight for Easy Lifting
Made of T6-6061 aircraft aluminum, the safety cages are lightweight – just 140 pounds (64 kilograms) – as much as 50 percent lighter than the steel alternative. The lightweight aluminum makes it easy for two workers to carry the cage with its convenient flip-up handles.
The safety cages shelter workers from debris up to 250 pounds dropped from as high as 7 feet above the cage. Bolt and pin connectors offer quick assembly and disassembly of the cages in 20 minutes or less. A unique spring system and leg spikes provide stability upon impact. Workers are protected from debris by a heavy-duty Polypropylene Knot-less mesh or stainless steel mesh netting that is secured around the outside of the cage.
Pair with Personal Protection Tunnels
Our Personal Protection Tunnels do exactly what their name suggests: provide masons safe passage in and out of the kiln. Similar to the safety cages, tunnels are designed to withstand impacts of up to 250 pounds and can handle drops from up to 18 inches.
