Seat Belts for Counterbalances
A kind of machine which can carry loads which are approximately 30,000 pounds is a forklift. A forklift is also called a counterbalance. Despite being sturdy and big, these industrial equipment still carry the possible chance of accident or crash. In order to be very safe, be sure to have operators put on an appropriate seat belt in the forklift and make sure that up to standard safety features are on board. We all know that in the event of an accident, seat belts could save lives.
Three-Point Seat Belt
The types of seat belts which can extend both over the lap and across the upper body are the three-point seat belts. These types of belts offer an extra degree of safety by protecting your body. They are offered in both bucket-seat and bench-seat styles. The 3-point seat belts are available in either non-retractable or retractable types.
Retractable seat belts are normally utilized in the majority of modern vehicles available. While non-retractable types increase safety, retractable styles offer a lot more comfort. It is really impossible for a non-retractable seat belt to extend accidentally.
Two-point lap belts are those that extend over the lower part of the body. The majority of lap belts are non-retractable and feature a push-button closure system. In order to secure the seat belt, simply press on the belt button and then the two sides will separate.
Circuit-closed seat belt
The type of seat belt that forces a forklift operator to put on a seat belt is a circuit-closed seat belt. These seat belts have a micro-switch attached that sounds an alarm if an operator starts a vehicle and is not secured by a seat belt. The circuit-closed seat belts are made in both retractable and non-retractable lap-band kinds.
