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
Made of T6-6061 aircraft aluminum, the 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 cages shelter workers
from debris up to 250 pounds dropped from as hight 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
Knotless mesh or stainless steel mech 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 cages,
tunnels are designed to withstand impacts of up to 250 pounds and can handle
drops from up to 18 inches.
