Extended range of lock out kits
06 June 2017
Martindale Electric, the expert in safe isolation solutions, will be exhibiting its extended range of comprehensive lock out kits and associated test equipment at this year’s Safety and Health Expo 2017.
The new kits starting with the LOKKITBASE and extending to the LOKITPRO have been tailored to the needs of installers and maintenance teams working in different environments, from domestic electricians through to commercial and industrial maintenance teams. They enable circuits to be locked off once de-energised, ensuring a safe maintenance schedule and compliance with the Electricity at Work Regulations.
The new LOKKITBASE and LOKKIT2PLUS kits both include standard miniature circuit breaker (MCB) locking off devices and the miniature LOK10 and LOK11 for when access is limited and there is not enough space for a conventional lock. The kits include a PAD10R padlock with a unique key plus a marker pen and tags to ensure immediate and clear identification of circuits, work areas and personnel. For added safety, each lock is supplied with just one key, to ensure a circuit cannot be inadvertently unlocked by another user.
The new LOKKITPRO features the full range of locking off devices available from Martindale and is the ideal choice for contractors and maintenance teams working on industrial and commercial sites. It is the ultimate safe isolation kit providing a locking off solution for all sites and applications from mcbs with integrated test buttons through old style fuse holders, to switchgear requiring a cable lock approach. The new kit is contained in a soft carry case, ensuring all locking off devices, tags, pen and padlock are always to hand.
With the average cost of health & safety fines trebling over the last year and around 1,000 serious accidents per year at work due to contact with electricity and 10 times as many involving electricity as a cause of the accident, compliance with Electricity at Work Regulations is clearly a priority for all.
The new lock out kits from Martindale Electric make it easy to ensure all types of circuits can be de-energised and properly isolated prior to maintenance of plant and equipment, preventing potentially fatal accidents and enabling compliance with HSG85.
Martindale Electric is a specialist in providing equipment to ensure safe working on electrical circuits and has designed a wide range of lock out kits and safety equipment, such as test instruments, proving units and isolation locks to ensure maximum safety in the workplace.
