Key Transfer Interlocks

Providing sequential safety for multiple access points

Key Transfer

Maintenance procedures may require access into multiple areas once hazardous energy has been isolated. KIRK® key transfer exchange units are ideal for these applications, ensuring all access points are safely entered after power isolation or exited before the power can be re-energized.

Transfer exchange units feature two or more lock cylinders and are designed to trap one or more keys while the remaining keys are removed. This allows for the initiating key of the sequence that isolated the hazardous energy to be trapped, releasing keys to the access interlocks. Only once all access keys have been returned to the transfer unit will the trapped keys be released to restore power. Click through to see the transfer interlocks available.
