Safety Catchers

Safety Catchers are used where personal protection and accident prevention must be provided against failure of lifting members in an area where loads or tools are raised. Protection, for example, if a hydraulic or pneumatic pressure system fails, or if a rope, chain, belt, or toothed drive breaks.

The SITEMA Safety Catcher will prevent the load from crashing down at any position of ascent; ratchless, mechanically safe and absolutely reliable. Because of its "self-intensifying clamp" operating principle, a safety level is achieved that is unsurpassed by any technological alternative.
