Seat Belts for Counterbalances
A kind of machinery that could carry loads that are about 30,000 pounds is a forklift. A forklift is also called a counterbalance. Despite being large and sturdy, these industrial machinery still bear the potential risk of crash or accident. To be able to be very safe, be sure to have operators put on an appropriate seat belt in the forklift and make certain that up to standard safety features are also on board. People know that in case of an accident, seat belts could save lives.
Three-Point Seat Belt
Three-point seat belts could extend across the upper body and over the lap. These belts offer an extra degree of safety by protecting your body. They are available in both bucket-seat and bench-seat types. The 3-point seat belts are available in either retractable and non-retractable kinds.
Most modern vehicles on the market offer retractable seat belts. While non-retractable styles increase safety, retractable styles offer a lot more comfort. It is impossible for a non-retractable seat belt to accidentally extend.
The type of seat belt which only extends over the lower portion of the body is a two-point lap belt. 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 the two sides would separate.
Circuit-closed seat belt
The kind of seat belt that forces a forklift operator to wear 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 styles.
