Trapped Key Interlocks - Maximising Safety
In Manufacturing

In any manufacturing company, one of your top priorities must be to ensure a safe working environment for your employees. To achieve this goal, you need a reliable and effective solution for controlling access to hazardous areas and machinery. This is where Trapped Key Interlocks come in.

What Are Trapped Key Interlocks?

Trapped Key Interlocks are a highly effective method of controlling access to hazardous areas, machinery, and processes. They work by trapping a key in a lock, which disables the machinery or process while guard doors are open, and operatives are working within the dangerous area. They ensure that machinery cannot be accidentally restarted until all guard doors are closed, greatly reducing the risk of workplace accidents.
