NEW SAFER SPRING RETRACTABLE HOSE REELS FROM TECPRO

Spring Retractable Hose Reels have made a significant difference to the health and safety of Australian workers across a wide range of industries.

No longer a trip hazard, businesses find WorkCover claims for trips and falls caused by industrial hoses are significantly reduced after Retractable Hose Reels are installed.

And retractable hose reels are now safer than ever.

In the past, unless carefully controlled by the user, the reels had a tendency to retract at speed.

The problem arises if the operator drops or releases the hose when it’s under tension. In this situation, there is a chance the retracting hose and heavy duty hose gun might whip back – potentially injuring a worker or damaging equipment.

Speed limiting devices are now available to remove the danger of the hose whipping back.

Tecpro Australia has released a Safety Brake system to slowdown the speed of hose reel retraction. Their Brake can be used in most applications and has earned FDA approval for use in the food industry.

Tecpro’s Hose Reel Safety Brake uses a compact, adjustable pawl locking mechanism that attaches to their Spring Retractable Hose Reels.

If you’re looking for a safer way to retract hoses at your workplace, contact the engineering experts at Tecpro Australia.
