Is IDEM The Robust, Durable Safety Solution You Are Looking For?

Quarries and Aggregates plants must be one of the most extreme environments to work in. Dust, moisture, extreme temperatures, impact and vibration make life difficult, but you still need to keep your employees safe - not easy in a notoriously dangerous environment.

Fortunately, IDEM heavy-duty safety switches are more than up to the job. Reliably keeping your employees safe, in the harshest areas.


Trapped Key Interlocks

IDEM Trapped Key Interlocks

Trapped Key Interlocks are a great safety solution for quarries and aggregates sites because they ensure a controlled, sequential process is followed to minimise the risk of injury to employees.

The interlock system physically prevents access to hazardous areas until it is safe to enter and ensures that equipment cannot be restarted until it is safe to do so. By using IDEM Trapped Key Interlocks, employees can work with confidence knowing they have a reliable system in place to
protect them.

In a dusty aggregates plant, we know a rope pull switch won't look like this for long, so IDEM stainless steel switches are built to withstand the toughest conditions.

Rope Pull Switchesidem pull rope switch

A rope pull switch is a continuous emergency stop mechanism that is easily activated in an emergency, such as an operator being pulled into
a conveyor or an object getting caught in a machine. In these situations, immediate action can prevent accidents and injuries, or damage to your equipment. It provides an effective and reliable means of stopping the
conveyor, allowing operators to respond quickly and effectively in an emergency.

Trapped Key Interlocks keep your employees safe - without power or expensive cabling. Custom keys restrict access and prevent accidentally restarting a machine or process while an operative or engineer is within the dangerous area.
