Accessing hazardous areas for maintenance or operational procedures put employees at risk. Understanding your access points and the type of access needed, partial-body or full-body, is critical to ensure you have the appropriate KIRK® access interlock.
KIRK® access interlocks have two parts; a main body, mounted to the stationary portion of the equipment, and a latching block or chain latch, mounted to the door or gate. The key is always trapped in the main body of the interlock when the two parts are separated. Only once the latch block
or chain latch re-engage the main body will the key be released.
KIRK® access interlocks are available in multiple cylinders, allowing for a personal key to be kept on the person performing the maintenance. Click through to see the access interlocks available.
