Castell has chosen Bulldog Controls to represent its machine, switchgear and loading dock safety products in the states of California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah.

Castell has chosen Bulldog Controls to represent its machine, switchgear and loading dock safety products in the states of California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah.

“Bulldog Controls has a wealth of experience and knowledge of industrial safety, both domestically and internationally,” said Castell sales director David Hughes. “We’ve chosen it to represent Castell’s interlocks because of its attention to specific customer requirements, and local and international standards, as well as its commitment to customer care and service.”

Castell’s trapped key interlocks are robust, heavy duty products that provide machine safety. The mechanical technology ensures isolation procedures are carried out prior to workers gaining access to a hazardous area, in accordance with ANSI Z244.1 (Control of Hazardous Energy—Lockout/Tagout and Alternative Methods).

The rugged design and construction of Castell’s interlocks make them suitable for use in harsh industries such as food processing and packaging, where devices must withstand daily wash-down procedures. The technology is also found in the mining and marine sectors, as well as other challenging environments where plastic safety switches and electrical components often fail or require continual maintenance.

In addition to machine guarding, Bulldog Controls will also offer Castell’s Salvo™ loading dock safety line. Salvo ensures truck trailers cannot be moved or driven away while loading or unloading is taking place. Unlike typical restraint systems, Salvo uses the trailer’s own brake force to prevent unscheduled drive-aways. Castell’s patented trapped key glad hand lock (SGL) is applied to the exposed trailer brake line coupling. Only once the SGL is locked in position can the key be removed from the lock, which ensures the trailer brakes are applied. The key can then be taken to initiate loading/unloading, by unlocking the manual or powered dock door, unlocking a chain barrier or even opening valves for tanker applications.
