In the waste and recycling industries, safety interlocks are typically used to safeguard sorters, shredders, compactors and bailers. Following growth in waste-to-energy projects, Castell has increasingly been asked to ensure safe access to emission control systems, protecting personnel from high-voltage equipment.

Between 2004/5 and 2011/12, 97 workers were fatally injured in waste and recycling activities, making it one of Britain’s deadliest industries.

Through robust mechanical design, Castell’s products are guaranteed to perform over extended periods of time, particularly in harsh conditions and aggressive environments.
